Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP today announced that the State Government will take action to improve safety for students who use the bus stop at the intersection of Mulgoa and Fairlight Roads.
Mrs Davies met with parents who expressed concern that children were standing close to the roadway and oncoming vehicles and trucks. Mrs Davies also met with Penrith City Council officers to identify solutions.
"I have been advised that RMS will install kerb and guttering on this section of Mulgoa Road.
"Currently, school children have to wait on the side of the road, which has a rough and badly defined edge. When the curb and guttering is installed, additional safety measures can be investigated.
"I have made representations to the Minister for Roads and have had conversations with the regional manager of the RMS. I am happy to confirm that kerb and guttering will be installed when the road is resurfaced" Mrs Davies said.
The kerb and guttering will be installed and the pavement resurfaced as part of the 2012-13 maintenance program, work is expected to be complete in the first half of 2013.
