Pedestrian safety to improve on Wyong Road at Killarney Vale
Wednesday, 16 November 2016
Roads and Maritime Services will soon start work to improve pedestrian access and safety on Wyong Road at Killarney Vale.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Scot MacDonald, said the NSW Government is providing $450,000 for the pedestrian improvements on Wyong Road between The Entrance Road and Kathleen White Crescent.
“Work involves installing mid-block traffic lights to help pedestrians cross the road at this busy location and building connecting footpaths, kerb and gutter and ramps to improve pedestrian access to the new traffic lights,” Mr MacDonald said.
“Eight on-road parking spaces are required to be removed to provide space for the new crossing facility.
“Roads and Maritime thanks the community for providing feedback on the proposal in September this year.”
Work is scheduled to start on Monday 21 November and will be carried out Monday to Thursday between 7am and 5pm for up to eight weeks, weather permitting.
To minimise the impact to traffic some work will be carried out at night from Sunday 27 November to Thursday 1 December between 7pm and 5am.
For the safety of workers and motorists, a temporary reduced speed limit and traffic control will be in place during work hours.
