Chung Wah and Emery Avenue roundabout

A new roundabout has been proposed at the intersection of Emery Avenue and Chung Wah Terrace in Palmerston to improve safety.

The intersection has been the site of many road incidents over the past decade, and engineering studies have recommended a roundabout at the intersection will reduce the risk of further crashes, while effectively managing traffic flow.

The Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Logistics has considered multiple options for the site.

Alternatives included the installation of traffic lights, however a roundabout has been identified as the option that:

  • improves safety at a site that has seen over 70 traffic incidents in nine years
  • effectively manages the flow of traffic in the area
  • is complimentary to other treatments used along the road way.

Traffic lights have been ruled out at this location as they have the potential to create traffic congestion and additional safety issues.
