Carnes Hill Shopping Precinct, Carnes Hill Proposed Traffic Facilities

Transport for NSW has provided funds through the Safer Speeds in High Pedestrian Activity and Local Areas for the 2023-24 financial year to provide 40km/h zone in Main Street and Sarah Hollands Drive, Carnes Hill. This is to improve road safety around Carnes Hill shopping precinct.

This requires installation of number of devices and ‘40km/hr High Pedestrian Activity Area (HPAA)’ signs to self-regulate the new speed limit in Main Street and Sarah Hollands Drive. This proposal will address community concern for safe pedestrian crossings across Sarah Hollands Drive. Main Street is within the shopping precinct with high pedestrian movements.

Thus, both streets qualifies for establishment of 40km/h High Pedestrian Activity Area.

In addition, a development has consent condition to install median in Sarah Hollands Drive section between Kurrajong Road and Stonequarry Way. This will also be constructed as part of these works.

The works are scheduled to be completed in the current financial year and is expected for construction to commence in February 2024.

Details and location of the devices, signs and linemarkings are indicated in the attached plans.

Council would appreciate your support for implementing the 40km/h HPAA in Main Street and Sarah Hollands Drive, Carnes Hill.
