CCTV camera for Pennant Hills Road at Pennant Hills
1 JUNE 2016
A new CCTV camera will be installed at the intersection of Loftus and Pennant Hills roads at Pennant Hills.
Epping MP Damien Tudehope said the camera would be funded from the NSW Government’s $246 million Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce traffic delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on major roads across Sydney, particularly during weekday peak periods.
“CCTV cameras are used by the Transport Management Centre to monitor traffic flow in real time and make adjustments to traffic light phasing to improve traffic flow efficiency.
“The equipment will be installed on a new pole at the intersection with Loftus Road.
“The work will be carried out during two shifts between Wednesday 1 and Wednesday 8 June, weather permitting, with work hours from 8am to 5pm.
“Changed traffic conditions including partial lane closures and reduced speed limits may be in place for the safety of workers and motorists.
“Many cameras have already been installed across Sydney providing important data on traffic conditions. CCTV is just one way the NSW Government is improving the experience for Sydney road users.
“The Pinch Point Program has also delivered significant improvements at key intersections to reduce congestion including new traffic lights and turning bays.
“A $4.4 million Pinch Point upgrade is currently under way at the intersection of Pennant Hills and Marsden roads to increase the intersection’s capacity.”
