TRAFFIC CONDITIONS IN WALLENDOON STREET CHANGED.
Cootamundra residents will have noticed the changed traffic conditions in Wallendoon Street. Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) traffic committee put forward a proposal to Councillors to remove the give way signs on the corner of Wallendoon and Sutton Streets resolved at the Ordinary Meeting held 25th August 2020. The signage was removed on Monday 30th November 2020.
Wallendoon Street is now the priority street for through traffic, ending the confusion and minor collisions often seen at this intersection.
CGRC mayor Cr Abb McAlister said the changes will improve traffic flow.
“The current situation is confusing, with cars stopping to give way to vehicles turning in front of them. The changes will have traffic flowing far more freely, and catering to local traffic,” Cr McAlister added.
Historically the give way signs were erected when the intersection was part of the Olympic Highway.
Warning alerts have been put in place to remind motorists of the change in the traffic conditions.
