Upgraded kerb ramps on Kooraban Street at Waterfall
20 May 2021
Member for Heathcote Lee Evans is pleased to announce the existing kerb ramps on Kooraban Street near the Princes Highway off-ramp at Waterfall will be upgraded later this month to provide a safer environment for people with prams and pedestrians.
Lee Evans said the upgraded kerb ramps are part of the Australian and NSW governments’ $400 million road safety funding boost.
“The investment by the Australian and NSW governments will deliver hundreds of road safety projects across the state, designed to save lives and reduce road trauma,” Mr Evans said.
“The upgraded kerb ramps on the corners of the Princes Highway off-ramp and Kooraban Street will provide easier and safer access for pram and wheelchair users entering and existing the footpath, and will improve amenity near the Waterfall train station.
“Kerb ramps are an important part of pedestrian infrastructure as they allow pedestrians to safely travel from footpath level to road level when crossing the roads with ease.”
Work to upgrade the kerb ramps will be carried out over five shifts from Sunday 30 May.
Work will be carried out from 7am to 5pm Monday to Friday and 8pm to 5am Sunday to Thursday, weather permitting.
There will be temporary traffic changes during work hours to ensure the work zone is safe.
Motorists are advised to keep to the speed limit and follow the direction of signs and traffic controllers.
