40 km/h pedestrian area for Broomfield St at Cabramatta East
Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and Roads, John Ajaka MLC today announced pedestrian and motorist safety will be improved on Broomfield Street and surrounding roads at Cabramatta East with an extension of the 40 km/h High Pedestrian Activity Area.
“Motorists will be encouraged to slow down on Broomfield Street and small sections of surrounding roads in Cabramatta East which are often bustling with pedestrians accessing businesses on the road,” Mr Ajaka said.
“The speed limit in Broomfield Street will be reduced from 50 km/h to 40 km/h for an extra 570 metres between Longfield and Bridge streets and on short lengths of Longfield, Fisher and Bridge streets.
“The Cabramatta Road off ramp to Broomfield Street will also be reduced to 40 km/h as part of the work.
“By lowering the speed limit the NSW Government aims to encourage motorists to slow down around pedestrians crossing roads to get to Cabramatta Railway Station and nearby shops.
“40 km/h High Pedestrian Activity Area signs will be installed from Thursday 20 June 2013, weather permitting.” Mr Ajaka said.
