Council has received funding for safety improvements under the NSW Safer Roads Program and, you are invited to have your say and provide feedback and comments.
The Safer Roads Program has been effective in reducing accidents and improving safety in areas with a history of accidents and incidents.
The new 40kph ‘high pedestrian activity’ area (HPAA) includes the installation a range of engineered safety devices such as:
- 40kph ‘high pedestrian activity’ signage that slows vehicles to a speed that is proven to reduce injuries and accidents;
- Entry thresholds that signal to drivers that they are entering a high pedestrian activity area;
- Raised threshold with fencing encouraging pedestrians to cross at designated safer crossings;
- Raised pedestrian crossings to slow drivers and foster pedestrian safety as a priority; and
- Kerb extensions which reduce the distance between kerbs for pedestrian to cross and, pedestrian and vehicle interaction.
Parking in the Centre will not be impacted by the introduction of these new safety devices.
