Speed Monitoring Program nominations
We recently recieved an invitation to consider the erection of pedestrian safety signage
being offered by the Little Dinosaur Foundation. The foundation was initiated after a traffic
incident where a 4 year old boy was killed in a pedestrian crash. the closing date for our
response is 30 August . As our meeting is not until 5 September , I have gone ahead and
nominated 3 locations . If you would like to suggest other locations, please let me
know so that I can contact Kathy Wiseham at council.
One sign states ” Hold My Hand ” in large print.
The other states : “Slow Down” ( in red circle) “Kids Around – It’s Holiday Time
We have nominated locations in the Bendalong- Manyana area
for the Speed Monitoring Program on behalf of Red Head Villages Association .
The two preferable locations would be at the entrance to Bendalong Village
on the Bendalong Road to encourage motorists to slow down as they approach the
Bendalong Store area which has heavy pedestrian traffic flow, especially during
The second would be at the approach to Cunjurong Point village on Cunjurong
Point Road especially during holiday periods. Many walkers, joggers and cyclists
use this roadway during the holiday periods , especially during Christmas/New Year.
Our association will endeavour to use our community noticeboard to promote our
new walkway/cycleway ( partially completed ) between Inyadda Beach,Manyana
and Bendalong during holiday periods to encourage people not to use Inyadda Drive
which is a very dangerous access route between the villages.
