Have your say on safety improvements on Appin Road
12 June 2014
Roads and Maritime Services invites the community to provide feedback by Friday 27 June on plans to improve safety along Appin Road at Gilead.
“Appin Road is used by more than 10,000 motorists daily and safety proposals are being developed after detailed safety investigations were carried out last year,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
“In the five years to 30 June last year, 48 crashes occurred on Appin Road between Copperfield Drive and Rixon Road at Gilead, 10 involving vehicles hitting roadside trees.
“Four fatal off-road crashes also occurred on Appin Road when vehicles hit roadside trees since March 2001.
“Roads and Maritime Services investigations found reducing the number of trees on the roadside could reduce the severity of crashes.
“Community feedback is now invited to the proposal to remove 24 trees from both sides of this stretch of road.
“Community members can view the proposal on the Roads and Maritime website and at the Campbelltown City Council Civic Centre and Campbelltown City Library,” the spokesperson said.
Written feedback is invited by Friday 27 June to Roads and Maritime Services Road Safety Engineer Leonardo Ferreri, PO Box 973 Parramatta CBD NSW 2124 or by email to Leonardo.Ferreri@rms.nsw.gov.au.
