David Coleman MP, Federal Member for Banks, has announced that the Federal Government will provide $330,000 for upgrades to Hannans Road in Riverwood to improve road and pedestrian safety.
The section of Hannans Road between Belmore Road and Karne Street will receive improvements to the existing pedestrian crossing, as well as the installation of safety fencing along the kerb.
“These upgrades will go a long way towards improving pedestrian safety on Hannans Road, particularly for the students at Hannans Road Public School that use the crossing,” Mr Coleman said.
“Hannans Road has a substantial amount of traffic and it is really important that we do everything we can to improve safety there. It is a known traffic Black Spot in the area, and that’s why we are taking this action.”
Construction is expected to begin later this year.
