New traffic lights at the intersection of Ironbark Ridge and Withers Road, Rouse Hill have been switched on.
The decision to install the lights followed community concern about road safety near the adjacent schools. The initiative was co-funded by Lend Lease, The GPT Group, and The Hills Shire Council.
Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said the upgrade would improve safety for motorists and pedestrians.
“It’s great to see these lights up and running,” Mayor Byrne said.
“This intersection provides a crucial link for people wanting to access Ironbark Ridge Primary School, Rouse Hill High School, Playdays Preschool & Day Care Centre and Care Centre Childcare, Caballo Street Picnic Area and those who live close to the new signals.
“These lights will assist in providing safe access for both pedestrians crossing this busy stretch of road, and vehicles entering and exiting the intersection, especially during peak times,” Mayor Byrne added.
Member for Castle Hill, The Hon Ray Williams MP said he was thrilled about the new traffic lights.
“Driver and pedestrian safety is paramount, especially at intersections located next to our schools,” Mr Williams said.
“It took some time to make it happen, but I am more than thrilled that these lights at Ironbark Ridge Road have finally come to fruition.
“It’s another example of Local and State Government working together to improve our wonderful community,” he added.
