Sophie Cotsis MP, Member for Canterbury, welcomes the completion of various traffic calming and safety devices across her electorate of Canterbury.
Recent works that have been completed include installation of roundabouts, zebra crossings, speed humps, median island crossings, and resurfacing streets and lanes.
“The community has continued to raise concerns with my office and local councillors regarding speeding motorists and pedestrian safety. There are still many issues and concerns that need to be addressed,” said Ms Cotsis.
“Issues such as greater plantation of native flora and beautification of our streets are important for our community.
“Thank you to everyone that has raised concerns about local traffic and pedestrian safety – particularly the parents who had filled out the School Safety Survey from my office.”
The School Safety Survey was a NSW Labor initiative which allowed parents from schools across Canterbury to communicate any issues they saw while their children walked, biked or drove with them to and from school.
A report, based on the survey, was prepared and sent to Council and the NSW Government with a range of recommendations to ensure greater safety when children are travelling to and from school.
“I encourage everyone to continue to have your say and relay your issues and concerns to Council by contacting your local councillor” said Ms Cotsis.
