Have your say on proposed traffic lights on Windsor Road at Northmead
Member for Baulkham Hills David Elliott and Member for Parramatta Geoff Lee today invited the community to have their say on a proposed set of traffic lights at the intersection of Windsor Road and Anderson Road at Northmead which aim to improve safety on the road.
"In the five years to June 2011, 22 crashes occurred when motorists turning right from Windsor Road into Anderson Road," Mr Elliott said.
"The NSW Government has provided $745,000 from the State Government's Black Spot Program to reduce the number and severity of crashes at the intersection on Windsor Road.”
The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has invited the community to have their say by Friday 6 September on the proposed traffic lights which aim to improve safety for all road users.
"The proposed lights would take about three months to build and would be installed near the entry and exit of Northmead Bowling Club and feature new pedestrian crossings, kerb and gutters and the road to be resurfaced,” Mr Lee said.
"RMS also proposes to install a right turn bay on Windsor Road for vehicles turning right into Anderson Road as part of the work.
"The current morning peak contraflow arrangement on Windsor Road would remain in place to keep traffic flowing once the lights are installed.”
Residents are invited to view the proposal online and send comments to Maria Swallow, Road Network Leader, Roads and Maritime Services at PO Box 973, Parramatta NSW 2124 or email Maria.Swallow@rms.nsw.gov.au or call (02) 8849 2030 by Friday 6 September.
RMS will notify residents by letter before the proposed work starts.
