Truck drivers will no longer have to pass through Dubbo’s major streets after a new intersection opened today on the Golden Highway in New South Wales.

The Boothenba Road and Golden Highway connection will allow truck access to Dubbo’s industrial estates and abattoirs.

Dubbo Council Mayor Matthew Dickerson says the upgrade will take trucks off residential streets.

"The intersection there before was too acute for B-doubles to use so they had to come right into Dubbo down some of the major streets," Dickerson says.

"The upgrade to this intersection means that we can now have B-doubles go via that intersection and go straight to where many of them want to go which is to the abattoirs and sale yards.

"That probably saves maybe 6km in terms of the actual distance, and more importantly it takes heavy traffic outside of Dubbo."

Dubbo Council provided $1.5 million to the project, with $1.1 million coming from the Federal Government.
