Long queues at the roundabout of Kings Road and Taylor Road are prompting drivers to take unnecessary risks to enter the intersection.
About the project
Replacing the existing roundabout with traffic lights will reduce traffic queues and improve safety by providing a more controlled intersection.
The $7.3 million upgrade will improve traffic flow on Kings Road and Taylors Road and reduce travel times, particularly during the busy morning and afternoon peak periods.
