Removal of “No Right Turn” signs from Macquarie Street

Right-hand turners rejoice! The "No Right Turn" traffic signs at the intersection of Kendal and Macquarie Street are being temporarily removed for a study.

Installed in April 2013, the traffic signs will be taken down as part of a Cowra Council & Roads and Maritime Services study into the need for traffic lights at this intersection following the Reconstruction of Kendal Street.

Part of the investigation involves undertaking traffic counts at the intersection, including vehicle and pedestrian movements, and delay times at each leg of the intersection.

So that these counts can reflect "normal traffic", the signs in Macquarie Street will be temporarily removed from Friday, September 11 to Friday, October 30 with traffic counts to be conducted from mid-October.
