Group may ask for Bays roads to be 'shared zones'

A request may be made to have roads in The Bays area officially designated as "shared zones" if a suggestion made to The Bays Community Group committee is supported.

The share zones would give pedestrians equal priority with vehicle movement.

"Although the legal speed limit for The Bays is 50km, most residents agree that there are very few places in The Bays where 50kmh is a safe speed to drive," said group president Ms Gwynneth Weir.

"Many residents drive at safe speeds, approaching narrow sections and blind corners with caution.

"But we all have experienced vehicles travelling at a speed that might be legal but is certainly not safe.

"It appears that some drivers think that the 50kmh limit is a required speed, rather than the maximum speed allowed."

Ms Weir said the committee would make a submission based on "what the residents think could be done to make our roads safer".

Residents should contact the committee with their ideas, she said.

"The State sets the speed limits on roads everywhere in NSW but our local council looks after the actual roads in The Bays.

"In many areas of The Bays, there are no footpaths beside the road.

"What about asking the State to put in additional signage in these places to indicate that the road is shared by pedestrians and vehicles?

"These signs usually have a speed limit that is lower than 50kmh.

"What about speed humps?

"Do you think they would help?

"The State is considering reducing the maximum speed limit from 50kmh in certain residential areas.

"Should we be making a case to the State for at least some of the roads in The Bays to be included?"

Residents should send their ideas by email to
