“Fix it before someone dies”
“I don’t buy that Council has no money to fix the problem.
“MP Matt Kean recently told me the state government was going to give Hornsby Council $100 million for its losses over suburbs going to Parramatta. So I would say to Council: spend some and fix this before someone dies.”
Hornsby Council denies there is a problem in these streets. “There is no evidence remediation is necessary,” says a spokesperson.
“The shared zone has been implemented in accordance with RMS guidelines. Council has been monitoring the shared zone since it was created and is satisfied that it is safe for both pedestrians and vehicles.
“As long as motorists follow the rules of a shared zone, which means sticking to the speed limit and accepting that pedestrians have right of way, Council is confident it is safe.”
Matt Tulk is organising a petition for the building’s residents to sign in a bid to get Council to change its mind.
