Council has received funding under the NSW Government's Safer Roads Program to investigate and mitigate safety issues on William Street between Kingsgrove Road and Woolcott Street, Earlwood.
The Safer Roads Program targets road locations with high volumes of motor vehicle movements with a history of incidents /accidents and, was introduced as part of the State Government’s commitment to reduce accidents on local roads. The Safer Roads Program has proven to be effective in improving safety for all users by reducing the number of accidents on local roads.
The speed limit on William Street is 50km/h, however, traffic surveys indicated that approximately 50% of motorists travel above the speed limit. The crash data between July 2013 and June 2018 recorded 10 accidents on William Street.
Council consulted the community in August 2020 regarding road safety improvements for William Street between Kingsgrove Road and Woolcott Street. The proposed road safety improvements included the installation of nine (9) raised thresholds, a pedestrian refuge island at Hillside Avenue, traffic signals at Alfred Street and a roundabout at Warburton Parade.
