New pedestrian crossings to improve safety at Kogarah
Pedestrians and other roads users in Kogarah will soon benefit from improved safety at the intersection of Rocky Point Road, Jubilee Avenue and Phillips Road, Kogarah with work to install two new pedestrian crossings at the traffic lights starting on Monday 3 March.
“The NSW Government provided $200,000 to install two new crossings across Jubilee Avenue and Phillips Road to provide an increased level of protection for pedestrians,” Parliamentary Secretary for Transport and Roads Ray Williams MP said.
“Roads and Maritime will carry out the upgrade to improve safety for all road users and reduce pedestrian crash risk.
“New kerb ramps to connect the new crossings and new line markings will be installed on weekdays from 7am to 3pm with some minor work at night between Sundays and Fridays from 8pm to 5am.
“The project is expected to be complete in about four weeks, weather permitting,” Mr Williams said.
Signs and traffic control will be in place to direct motorists. Every effort will be made to minimise the noise and traffic delays from the work.
Motorists are reminded to follow reduced speed limits and the direction of traffic controllers.
