Improving pedestrian access for Peakhurst Lodge residents
Monday, 27 May 2019
Today Mark Coure MP, Member for Oatley, Cr Kevin Greene, Mayor of Georges River Council and Cr Colleen Symington, Peakhurst Ward Councillor visited the location of a new footpath at Henry Lawson Drive, Peakhurst.
Mr Coure, Roads and Maritime Services and Georges River Council have been working together to improve pedestrian access for visitors and residents of Peakhurst Lodge Nursing Home.
The NSW Government has committed $17,000 for a new footpath through Henry Lawson Drive Reserve that will connect Jacques Avenue and Henry Lawson Drive. Georges River Council have provided the remainder of the funding and are facilitating the works.
“This is good news for residents, staff and visitors to Peakhurst Lodge, who have been calling for improved pedestrian access through Henry Lawson Drive Reserve,” Mr Coure said.
“This new pathway will enable people visiting Peakhurst Lodge who park on nearby Jacques Avenue to safely walk through Henry Lawson Drive Reserve.”
“It is great see local and state governments working together on projects that bring significant benefits to the community.”
“Roads and Maritime Services have worked closely with Council over the past several months to install a pedestrian walkway connecting Jacques Avenue with Henry Lawson Drive,” Mayor Kevin Greene said.
Councillor Colleen Symington said, “I’m really pleased with the result following my Notice of Motion in relation to the access and traffic issues in this location, and I know it will benefit many people who either live in or visit the area.”
Construction on the footpath has begun and will be completed by the end of the month, weather permitting.
