|Ron Hoenig MP at the new Mascot lights|
New pedestrian traffic lights and a new pedestrian crossing at Mascot Shops in Botany Road at High Street were turned on by NSW Roads and Martime Services (RMS) today.
This will be welcome news to Mascot shoppers who have been inconvenienced for several years by a pedestrian safety fence constructed across the traffic median of Botany Road, Mascot.
Following calls by Mascot shopkeepers to install this pedestrian crossing at the High Street intersection, something I supported, Roads Minister Duncan Gay after meeting with shopkeepers agreed. The pedestrian traffic lights will benefit both shopkeepers and Mascot shoppers.
On behalf of the Mascot community I thank the RMS for being so responsive to the Mascot community needs.
