Kariong accident prone black spot funded but not fixed

Federal Member for Robertson, Ms Lucy Wicks MP has called on Gosford Council to prevent any further delays in fixing a dangerous intersection at Kariong.

Ms Wicks held a community BBQ jointly organised by the Kariong Progress Association, to hear from local residents about what matters to them. The event was held at the Progress Hall, close to the intersection of Langford Dve and Woy Woy Rd, which has been identified by the community as an accidentprone black spot.

“We have provided $675,000 in the Federal budget towards making the Woy Woy Rd and Langford Dve intersection safer,” Ms Wicks said. “This is a project that now rests with Gosford Council to finalise and build. “I would urge Council to deliver on this commitment and fix this road as a matter of priority.

“Three thousand local residents signed a petition calling on this dangerous intersection to be fixed and I share their concerns about the delay in getting this done. “After all, the money has been in the Federal budget for the last two years, so I have to ask: what are we waiting for?” Ms Wicks concluded.
