ROAD BLACK SPOT AT GEORGES RIVER NATIONAL PARK MUST BE FIXED

David Coleman MP, Federal Member for Banks, has received a strong response from the community about road safety at the intersection of Henry Lawson Drive and The River Road in Revesby Heights.

Hundreds of local residents raised their concerns about the intersection. Residents are particularly concerned with road safety when exiting Georges River National Park.

Residents informed Mr Coleman that visibility when exiting Georges River National Park is poor due to the blind corner of Henry Lawson Drive, and that a set of traffic lights or a roundabout is needed to make the intersection safer in all directions.

Mr Coleman has raised these concerns with the Federal Government and the State Government. Mr Coleman has also requested that Canterbury Bankstown Council includes this location in its next application for Federal Funding in the Road Black Spot Program.

“The intersection of Henry Lawson Drive and The River Road is very dangerous, especially when exiting from the Georges River National Park,” Mr Coleman said.

“The lack of visibility in all directions impacts the safety of motorists and must be fixed.”
