Question and Answer Tracking Details


Haylen, Jo to the Attorney General representing the Minister for Metropolitan Roads, and Minister for Women's Safety and the Prevention of Domestic and Sexual Violence

(1) Given the recent tragic and fatal accident on the pedestrian crossing on Frederick Street, what action is being taken by Transport for NSW to improve safety at this location and along Frederick Street?

(2) What investigations have taken place between 2017, when a teenager was hit at the same location, and now?

(3) Will the Minister meet with local members, council and residents to discuss the matter?

Answer -

I am advised:

Transport for NSW is conducting a detailed safety review to investigate safety improvement opportunities. The review will consider the road condition, signage, visibility, speed limits and any other factors that may have contributed to the fatal accident. Transport for NSW has already undertaken to upgrade the line marking and signage at the location as a priority to improve delineation and advance notification approaching the pedestrian crossing.

In 2018, Transport for NSW upgraded the existing pedestrian crossings in Frederick Street near John and Henry Streets. These upgrades improved safety by moving the crossings away from the intersection, calming traffic and reducing the crossing distance for pedestrians.

An investigation by NSW Police into the fatal pedestrian crash on Frederick Street is underway, Transport for NSW awaits the findings of this report.
