Scot MacDonald
HAVE A SAY ON PROPOSED SAFETY IMPROVEMENTS ON BRISBANE WATER DRIVE AT POINT CLARE
4th May 2018

Roads and Maritime Services is inviting the community to have a say on proposed safety improvement work on Brisbane Water Drive at the intersections of Sunshine Drive and Sunnyside Avenue at Point Clare.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Scot MacDonald MLC said the NSW Government has provided $600,000 this financial year for safety improvement work on Brisbane Water Drive between Glenrock Parade and Manooka Road.

“In the five years to June 2017, there were 11 crashes at these two intersections, 10 of which resulted in injury,” Mr MacDonald said.

“The proposed work involves installing right turn bays on Brisbane Water Drive at Sunshine Drive and Sunnyside Avenue to assist motorists turning into these side roads.”

“The work would require a new no stopping zone to be installed along this section of Brisbane Water Drive and the removal of the eastbound bus stop located west of Byarong Avenue, to allow enough space for the turning bays to be installed.”

Mr MacDonald said the community is invited to view the proposal and find more information about the Brisbane Water Drive safety improvements at http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/projects/central-coast/brisbane-water-drive-safety-review/index.html

Feedback is open until Wednesday 23rd May 2018 and can be sent to the Roads and Maritime Project Manager, Peter Talbot via email at peter.j.talbot@rms.nsw.gov.au or by mailing Roads and Maritime services, Locked Bag 2030 Newcastle 2300.

Roads and Maritime thanks the community in advance for providing all feedback, which will be considered as project planning progresses.
