Margaret River’s new roundabout is expected to be finished in time for this weekend, while full access to the main street from the north could be ready in less than a month. The latest Shire of Augusta-Margaret River update on the makeover project said all works near Margaret River Senior High School would be completed within the next month. Motorists can now access the town centre via Tunbridge Street, and the contentious “peanutabout” at that intersection should be open to traffic from the north, and via Churchill and Tunbridge, this weekend. Crews also installed main street crossings late last week after frustrated residents complained about the long circuit to access shops. Shire corporate and community services director James Shepherd said crews worked with main street traders to address concerns as they appeared. “By (this) weekend, all inbound traffic will be able to permanently turn left up Churchill Avenue and right up Tunbridge Street, improving access to the CBD,” he said. “The Shire and its contractor BCP have worked hard to ensure that full pedestrian access to all shops will be maintained. “In addition to existing signage, the Shire will be installing a suite of new banners and signs to welcome visitors and assist with wayfinding.” Shire president Ian Earl said the clock was ticking on an extra funding stream needed to complete the unfunded stage three of the project. He expected news within the next month.
