MEDIA RELEASE

Hunter’s Hill Council has delivered a project to improve access and safety in a pedestrian and traffic area on Manning Road, with funding from the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.

The section of Manning Road is near a popular access point to Riverglade Reserve.

The project involved removing a raised threshold on Manning Road and replacing it with a new pedestrian refuge island, to improve the safety, quality and condition of the Manning Road crossing.

The work also involved installation of speed cushions on the roadway.

Mayor Ross Williams welcomed the project.

“This is a long-awaited improvement to pedestrian safety in Manning Road,” he said.

“The area is used by many walkers and the changes will now provide more safety and certainty in traffic flow.

Clr Williams said the Council was very grateful to local Federal MP Trent Zimmerman for the funding.

Mr Zimmerman said the grants program was part of the economic stimulus package to support Australia as the nation emerged from COVID-19.

“It was designed to support projects that otherwise wouldn’t have been constructed, in partnership with local councils across Australia,” he said.

“And the program brings the added benefit of boosting much-needed local infrastructure.”
