Bays group seeks submissions about road safety

The Bays Community Group is seeking submissions about road safety in The Bays area by the end of today.

"We are all aware that our roads in The Bays are narrow, lack kerbs and gutters, have blind corners and low lighting at night," said group president Ms Carolina Schuiling.

"Small vehicles are frequently having to negotiate getting past very large vehicles such as buses and garbage trucks.

"There are often complaints from residents about speeding vehicles and we have pedestrians, including elderly people, families with small children and people walking dogs using the roads.

"All of these issues can make travelling on our roads unsafe.

"We have a current speed zone limit of 50kph for the Bays area which in many places is too high for safety.

"Over the last few years, the committee has been writing to Council on behalf of the community requesting to lower the speed limit.

"Council has previously advised that the speed limit was a State Government responsibility to review and set speed limits and passed our request on to Transport for NSW.

"Recently the Council advised that the department has still not addressed our request.

"While we are awaiting a response, the Bays Community Group has requested Council to inspect our local roads to determine if something can be done in the meantime to address our road safety issues with the intention of making our streets safer."

Council staff have accepted the request for a site inspection.

"You are invited to raise your road safety concerns along with any ideas for addressing these."

These will be raised at the inspection.

Concerns and ideas should be sent by email to committee member Mr Vic Tysoe at

Deadline for submissions is today, Monday, September 4.
