Improved crossing for students at Mount Annan Public School
Wednesday October 21 2015
Chris Patterson, Member for Camden is pleased to announce safety for students and pedestrians around Mount Annan Public School has been improved with the completion of a project to upgrade the pedestrian crossing on Stenhouse Drive.
Chris said Camden Council recently upgraded the crossing with a raised pedestrian crossing after receiving funding from the NSW Government.
“The opening of this project marks the delivery of another election commitment to improve congestion and safety for communities around the state,” Chris said.
“Camden Council has promptly delivered this important safety project on Stenhouse Drive at Mount Annan.
“Work was carried out by council to extend the raised kerbs to minimise the crossing distance at the school crossing outside Mount Annan Public School.
“Motorists should be driving to the 40 km/h speed limit in school zones and be alert for students at school drop off and pick up times.
‘This improved crossing is expected to provide a safer environment for students, parents and other pedestrians using the crossing on Stenhouse Drive.
“Children are some of our most vulnerable road users and anything we can do improve safety around schools by slowing motorists’ down is welcomed.
“Flashing lights were also provided earlier this year along Stenhouse Drive as part of the NSW Government’s commitment to provide flashing lights at every school by the end of this year.”
