Trial Level Crossing System Soon Operational at Bribbaree

Transport for NSW have completed safety testing and are working with Australian Rail Track Corporation and Weddin Shire Council as the trial level crossing system is installed at Mary Gilmore Way in Bribbaree.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke has strongly campaigned for changes to be made to reduce the risk of collisions at level crossings between trains and vehicles in regional NSW.

“In November 2021, I led a petition with over 21,000 signatures which was debated in Parliament. As the petition attracted such strong support, I was able to voice the concerns of the community.”

“Following multiple representations and meetings with all levels of Government, we now see reduced speed limits on approaches to all actively controlled level crossings across NSW, not just on our highways.”

“I am pleased the previous NSW Coalition Government listened to the concerns of our regional communities and implemented level crossing safety measures.”

“With an investment made by Transport for NSW through the Level Crossing Improvement Program, we have seen the implementation of the Level Crossing Strategy Council Strategic Plan 2021-2030, to further improve awareness at level crossings and reducing risks for all motorists on our roads.

Ms Cooke recently met with the Minister for Regional Transport and Roads, the Hon. Jenny Aitchison to discuss the implementation of the trial innovative signs with LED flashing lights which are being installed at Mary Gilmore Way in Bribbaree.
