All B-double Authorisation Notices

Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council

Remove the following roads:

·         Parker Street

from Adams Street to Wallendoon Street.

·         Berthong Street

from Gundagai Road to Mcconaghy Street.

·         Wills Street

from Victoria Parade to Berthong Street.

·         Francis Street

from Sutton Street to Hovell Street.

·         Lawrence Street

from Sutton Street to Hovell Street.

Consideration for heavy vehicle access was undertaken, and upon assessment, Council wishes to request the removal of specific roads due to inadequate road infrastructure and concerns for public safety on Parker Street, Berthong Street, Wills Street, Francis Street and Lawrence Street, Cootamundra. The noted roads include busy residential areas with active driveways, commercial car parks and high public activity.  These roads are commonly utilised by pedestrians and cyclists in which conditions cannot be applied to mitigate the identified risks of heavy vehicle travel and ensure public safety.

New South Wales –

All B-double Authorisation Notices, route status for 19m, 23m and 25m/26m B-doubles

Wingecarribee Shire Council

Remove the following roads:

Innes Road, Moss Vale, between Berrima Road and Lackey Road.

There are two adjoining schools, particularly St Pauls Catholic Primary School which uses Innes Road for afternoon school pick-up, during which time the road parking is completely taken up on either side, narrowing the travel lanes and not allowing for vehicles to pass one another in opposing directions.

There are no footpaths in Innes Road. People (including unaccompanied school children) walk on the road carriageway which creates a conflict with vehicles generally.

Innes Road has varying widths, ranging from sections that are 10m, 8m and 6m. The 6m section is located on a bend which causes a long vehicle to travel on the wrong side of the road, with limit sight distance of on-coming vehicles.

There are currently ten residential properties, with new subdivisions under construction. There are no businesses on Innes Road.

All industrial businesses on Lackey Road can be accessed via Douglas Road and do not require Innes Road.

The large vehicles will cause unnecessary noise and safety issue to the people living on, and using, Innes Road, with no extra economic benefit to the local community.
