Is everyone aware of the plans recently announced by a letterbox drop "Oxley Road and Clewley Street Intersection Upgrade Community Newsletter 1 - April 2011"?
The drop appears to have been done on 5/5 (I didn't get one but luckily my neighbour did) and feedback is due by 20/5/11. It notifies of a very big project for the Oxley Road/Clewley Street intersection (next to the Coles) which includes complete removal of the pedestrian safety zone to enable some turning lanes in addition to the existing two lanes - which will still funnel inbound traffic into one lane under the railway overpass and outbound traffic into one lane just past Nelson Street.
There are other "proposed" changes such as no right turn into Nelson Street outbound, and "required" changes such as no right turn into Oxley Road from Martindale or Donaldson Streets.
People who live locally may have missed out as I did on the pamphlett, and those who don't live in the immediate area but who visit for shopping, transport etc. may not know until they see the construction start (scheduled for mid to late 2011).
