TC17.33     Additional Item - Nowra Issues - Speeding and Drainage Quinns Lane, Traffic Lights in Moss St, Parking at Hospital, Pedestrian Crossing in North St.

 

Allan Trass raised the following issues:

  • Speeding on Quinns Lane and Old Southern Road
  • Drainage issues on Quinns Lane with regard to changes to the causeway over the creek
  • Traffic lights at Moss St, during the middle of the day the lights are only on green going in an easterly direction for a short time. This is not enough time for the amount of cars coming from that direction.  A few farmers are affected who use the route during the day in between school times.
  • Parking on either side of driveways near the hospital may cause issues for residents.
  • Consideration be given to moving the pedestrian crossing on North Street.

 

 

 

There being no further business, the meeting concluded, the time being 10.05 am.
