The dark days are over for a key intersection in the heart of Rockhampton, with vital traffic signals funded by the Australian Government’s Black Spot program now switched on.

The new signals and pedestrian crossings, installed at the intersection of Upper Dawson Road and Caroline Street in Allenstown, will help improve traffic flow, and boost safety for both pedestrians and motorists.

Ramps and new turning lanes have also been constructed, while Rockhampton Regional Council also installed new kerbs and channels, and undertook asphalt surfacing and line marking.

The works were funded through a $676,000 investment from the Australian Government’s Black Spot Program.
