Tanya Davies MP today announced investigation work will start next week for a proposal to install a Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) camera at the intersection of Erskine Park and Bennett Roads in St Clair to help improve travel times for motorists.
“The work is being carried out as part of the NSW Government’s $246 million Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce traffic delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s major roads particularly during the weekday peak,” Tanya Davies said.
CCTV cameras provide valuable real time information on road and traffic conditions to traffic controllers so they can respond quicker to incidents and congestion and improve traffic flow.
Work will be completed in two shifts between Wednesday 17 and Friday 26 February from 8pm to 5am excluding weekends, weather permitting, and will include scanning, trenching and digging to locate underground utilities and obtain information on ground conditions.
There will be some noise associated with this work but every effort will be made to minimise its impact. Changed traffic conditions including temporary lane closures, traffic control and a reduced 40 km/h speed limit will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists. Motorists can expect short delays so should allow for extra travel time.
Roads and Maritime Services would like to thank the community for its patience while this important work is carried out.
