New South Head Road Safety

Tuesday 12 December 2017

Following two tragic deaths of bike riders on New South Head Road, I’ve asked the Minister for Roads, Maritime and Ports for action to improve safety on this commuting route: https://www.parliament.nsw.gov.au/la/papers/pages/qanda-tracking-details.aspx?pk=237714.

Bike riders have contacted me about the lack of enforcement of the 1 metre separation rule, which should mean motorists give cyclists space on the road. There’s an online petition with more than 1,700 signatures calling for safety improvements: https://www.change.org/p/gabrielle-upton-mp-create-a-separate-bike-lane-on-new-south-head-road.
