Have your say on safety improvements Pennant Hills Road
Community members are invited to give feedback to proposed improvements on Pennant Hills Road between Wells Street at Thornleigh and George Street at Pennant Hills to improve safety.
"In the five years to June 2011 four head-on crashes and two off-road crashes occurred along this section of Pennant Hills Road and another 26 crashes occurred when southbound vehicles turning into Wells Street collided with northbound traffic on the road," Hornsby State Liberal MP Matt Kean said.
"About 77,000 vehicles travel on this section of Pennant Hills Road every day which has three lanes in each direction separated by a mountable low height median."
Roads and Maritime is inviting community feedback on a proposal to improve safety for motorists in this area by installing a median low-height concrete barrier from Wells Street to George Street to reduce the risk of cars crossing to the other side of the road.
The proposal also includes installing new traffic lights at the intersection of Pennant Hills Road and Wells Street to offer safer turning conditions into Wells Street without disruptions to southbound traffic flow.
"Roads and Maritime invites written feedback to the proposal by Friday 6 December to Roads and Maritime Project Manager Sam Wijekoon at PO Box 973, Parramatta NSW 2124 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
"All written comments received will be considered in the final assessment and development of the proposal," Mr Kean said.
