Consultation has concluded

Background Information

Council has been successful in gaining funding from the Federal Government's Blackspot Program to investigate and address safety concerns on Hannans Road, Riverwood. Hannans Road Riverwood, is a local road with a 50 km/h speed limit.

As part of the Federal Government’s commitment to reduce the number of accidents on local roads, the Blackspot Program targets roads with a high number of accidents or incidents.

Data from Transport for NSW (TfNSW) shows there were seven accidents on Hannans Road between July 2013 and June 2018.

This proposal

To improve safety for all users, this upgrade is proposing the installation of traffic calming devices on Hannans Road, between Belmore Road North and Karne Street South. This includes:

  • Upgrading the current pedestrian crossing to a raised pedestrian crossing (with pedestrian fence) at Hannans Road Public School ;
  • Installing five(5) new speed hump devices; and
  • Improving line marking and additional traffic signage as required.

The proposed locations for the speed humps devices are outside/in front of the following properties:

  • 3, 20, 22 Hannans Road;
  • 57, 57A, 80 Hannans Road;
  • 77, 102, 104 Hannans Road;
  • 12 Hannans Road;
  • 2 Hardy Avenue; and
  • 35, 62 Hannans Road

These upgrades will be installed to Australian Standards and RMS Technical Guidelines specifications. The number of on-street parking spaces will remain the same.
