Work is underway on Orange’s newest roundabout at the corner of Woodward and Moulder Streets, in a bid to improve traffic flow and the safety of the intersection.
 
The new roundabout is being built by Orange City Council with $260,000 funding from the Australian Government’s Black Spot program. The intersection was chosen for the project because of its accident record.
 
During the project there will always be two lanes of traffic flowing in Woodward Street. During the first stage, traffic has been moved to the eastern side of the road while work begins on the western side. 
 
The western access to Moulder Street will stay closed for the first stage of the project, while the eastern access to Moulder Street will be closed for one month during the second half of the roundabout construction.
 
Marked detours are in place and drivers are asked to choose other routes and avoid the area if they can.
 
Weather permitting, the project is expected to be completed by the end of June.
