Gunnedah Shire Council is using a new road solution as part of the new Barber and Chandos streets roundabout.
Gunnedah Shire Council Works Manager Richard Baxter said rubber kerbing had been installed at the roundabout as part of traffic safety measures.
“This is a first for Gunnedah,” Mr Baxter said.
“Rubber kerbing is a cleaner and greener traffic solution that is made from recycled materials and can be removed if necessary.
“Unlike the more traditional concrete kerbing, white rubber kerbing is resistant to road grime, doesn’t crack, and does not need a lot of maintenance to retain visibility. It is also cost effective and absorbs vehicle impact.”
Rubber kerbing is becoming more widely used across Australia, and is already in use in the Narrabri Shire.
