Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley has applauded the State Government on its measures to improve road safety on the South Coast.
Mayor Findley is highly supportive of the latest road safety initiative for our local area through the “Saving Lives on Country Roads” program.
“I congratulate The Hon. Shelley Hancock, MP on her campaigning to make our local roads safer, particularly with the new planned safety improvements to our Shoalhaven roads and intersections along the Princes Highway.
“We both see eye to eye on the issue of making our roads safer for our residents and visitors to the region.
“Mrs Hancock can be assured that Council will support her on this initiative and with our resource of a Road Safety Officer, we will ensure important road safety messages are promoted and spread across the City.”
Mayor Findley also made reference to the Urgency Motion from Councillor John Wells at the last Ordinary Meeting which called for the need for grade separation at the intersection of Jervis Bay Road and the Princes Highway.
“This road needs to be assessed as it is becoming more dangerous for cars to turn right out on the highway from Jervis Bay Road.
“One of the key directions of Council is to ensure our road infrastructure is prioritised for road safety, design, construction and development within the framework of our resources.”
A Notice of Motion will be discussed at a future Council meeting.
