It is noted that there is a refuge island at the location of the proposed pedestrian crossing.

 

The representative of the Member for Baulkham Hills suggested that Council seek 50% funding from the Hill Shire Council as the location is near the border of the Councils.

 

Recommendation from the Traffic Engineering Advisory Group:

 

That Council seek funds for a raised pedestrian crossing at 187 Caroline Chisholm Drive and include this in the Pedestrian Projects List.

 

For: Councillor Bide and the representative for the member for Baulkham Hills voted in favour of the proposal.
