Safe Footpath Connection to Bell Bird Park Precinct

This petition made change with 115 supporters!


The current access to the Bell Bird Park Sporting Precinct sees members of our community including many children walk on an unsafe and speedy road, with near collisions a daily reality. 

There is no connecting footpath at the end of Shillinglaw Road to the Bell Bird Park Precinct,  forcing people to walk along the road.  This is an accident waiting to happen. As a mum of two I regularly walk with pram and dog and find myself rushing across to get to the other side.  The embankment and the drain means there is no safe pedestrian spot and you literally are at the mercy of the drivers on the road.  

Due to construction of new housing estates in the area,  Settlement road has become a very busy road,  particularly during peak times such as after school sport drops offs. I fear for the many children that walk or ride their bikes along this access route. 

I am calling on the Council to ensure a safe footpath and accessibility for the many residents of this community is considered and constructed before an accident happens.

Please support this petition to show your support for these measures on Settlement Road.

With thanks,

Christine Backman
