Easier travelling ’round Ford Street

Moruya’s Ford Street will be closed for three nights next week when a roundabout is installed at the Ford Lane intersection.

The roundabout will improve traffic flow and create safer travel on the busy road that leads to Moruya’s two major supermarkets.

To reduce construction time and impact on traffic, the roundabout centre island has been built off-site and will be installed over three consecutive nights starting Sunday 14 March, weather permitting.

Work will begin from 7pm and is expected to be finished by 5am. Over the three nights, the southern end of Ford Street will be closed to through traffic between the highway and the IGA supermarket car park entry.

Ford Lane, the access to Woolworths supermarket from Ford Street, will also be closed during the night work with no exit onto Ford Street. Detours will be in place, and access to both supermarkets will be via Queen Street.

During the day, Ford Street and Ford Lane will have traffic control in place, with vehicles limited to left-in or left-out from Ford Lane.

While the roundabout works are underway, Council will take the opportunity to strengthen the road pavement. Commuters should allow extra time to travel through the area.

Every effort will be made to minimise noise but residents may hear heavy machinery operating.

The roundabout works are funded through a NSW Government road safety grant.
