Have your say on a proposed CCTV camera on Pennant Hills Road at Thornleigh
4 May 2016
Community members are invited to provide feedback on a proposal to install a closed circuit television (CCTV) camera on Pennant Hills Road at Thornleigh. Hornsby MP Matt Kean said the camera would be funded through the $246 million Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce traffic delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s major roads particularly during weekday peak periods.
“Roads and Maritime Services proposes to install the CCTV camera at the intersection of Dartford and Pennant Hills roads at Thornleigh,” Mr Kean said. “The camera would allow congestion to be monitored so traffic flows could be better managed.
“The proposal includes installing the camera on an existing traffic light post and connecting it to existing underground electrical cables.
“It would complement another CCTV camera which is proposed to be installed at the intersection of Loftus Street and Pennant Hills Road in Pennant Hills.”
All feedback can be submitted by Wednesday 11 May to project delivery partner DownerMouchel at PO Box 6465 North Ryde NSW 2113 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mr Kean said CCTV is just one way the NSW Government is improving the experience for Sydney road users and many cameras have already been installed across Sydney providing important data on traffic flow conditions.
“The Pinch Point Program has also delivered significant improvements at key intersections to reduce congestion including new traffic lights and turning bays as well as electronic message signs so motorists can make informed decisions about their journey,” Mr Kean said.
“More than $80 million in pinch point projects have been delivered in the past three years.”
