Road Safety Review of intersection of Main Avenue and Andrews Rd in Botanica, Lidcombe

This petition had 78 supporters

There has been a number of near misses with vehicles coming out of Andrews Rd on to Main Avenue within Botanica, Lidcombe. The issue has been raised and discussed on Botanica's community page on Facebook. We think this is an accident waiting to happen especially with more residents moving in soon near Andrews Rd.

The issue is seemingly three-folds

1. In this particular section of Main Avenue, the road is curved. Along with parked vehicle on the western side of Main Avenue, this makes it really hard to see vehicles travelling on Main Avenue from Andrews Rd.

2. Despite the curved section, vehicles on Main Avenue continue to travel at relatively high speed.

3. Vehicles coming onto Main Ave from offshoots don't seem to observe the normal road rules of stopping and giving way. 

This petition is to really to bring attention the issue to the local council. We think some of the immediate actions that can be taken are 1) Put stop signs on each offshoot 2) Put temporary "no stopping" signs on the western side of Main Ave where the new apartments are being completed.

Another potential solution for the Andrews Rd intersection is to create a new round-about, which would allow vehicles from Andrews Rd to come out onto Main Avenue much more safely. This would also inherently slow vehicles down at the intersection.
