Lights planned for Ocean Beach Rd crossing
Residents who frequent Ocean Beach Rd at Woy Woy are encouraged to have a say on a proposed upgrade to pedestrian safety at the existing marked crossing near Woy Woy South Public School.
Member for Gosford Mr Chris Holstein said Roads and Maritime Services was planning the upgrade to improve pedestrian safety along the busy road, particularly for school students.
"We are inviting comments from the community by December 6 to help finalise the proposal to install traffic lights to provide a higher level of safety at the pedestrian crossing," Mr Holstein said.
"The traffic lights will replace the existing marked pedestrian crossing and the school crossing supervisor to provide a higher level of safety at the pedestrian crossing.
"Work proposed for the crossing also includes installing a concrete median along the centre of the road and carrying out minor adjustments to the entry of the Woy Woy South Public School's parking area.
"These improvements were identified through Roads and Maritime safety audits and consultation with stakeholders, including representatives of Woy Woy South Public School, following the decommissioning of the speed camera on Ocean Beach Rd.
"Roads and Maritime will consider feedback received by the community when finalising the proposed upgrade.
"The work is planned to be carried out in early 2014."
