Sarah Henderson meeting with concerned community members from the 13th Beach Golf Links Estate
We need a traffic solution and 80km/h speed limit at the intersection of Barwon Heads Road and Tomara Drive, at the entrance to the 13th Beach Golf Links Estate.
The intersection is near a bus stop where parents from the Estate drop children to catch school buses. The current speed limit for this stretch of road is 100km/h making it very dangerous for children crossing the road between parents’ cars and the bus stop. Local residents are also finding it very difficult to exit the estate in their cars.
There have already been two young children injured in an accident and a number of near misses. The safety of school children is paramount.
The state Government must reduce the speed in this area to 80kmh as a matter of urgency, while a proper traffic management solution, such as traffic lights, or a roundabout are considered.
I am joining with residents from the 13th Beach Golf Links Estate to fight for attention to this dangerous intersection so that its safety can be improved.
