Stockland has opened a new section of road which allows improved access for tradesmen, builders and deliveries for many of the rapidly developing areas of Baringa. As the extension to Aura Boulevard remains closed while finishing touches are completed, Baringa Drive (opposite the new High School site) and on the western side of Baringa now connects through to McArthur Parade (near Frog Park) on the eastern side of the development.
Traffic lights where the roads intersect at Aura Blvd are not in use but this section now permits much improved access for trucks and tradies (photo above) to the expanding areas of Baringa especially those around Burnett Circuit and Robertson Cres.
The new access also stops many heavy vehicles from passing the school, freeing up access especially during school l pickup and drop off times and taking the traffic lights near the new shopping development out of the equation. The new opening provides better direct access for larger vehicles, especially those entering Baringa from the Bells Creek Arterial.
