Rawson Rd was only crossing with two fatalities
The Rawson Rd level rail crossing is now one of the most dangerous in NSW, according to the Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch.
Ms Tesch said the Rawson Rd level crossing was the only one in the whole of NSW to have two fatalities in 2017.
She said she the crossing needed to be replaced for safety reasons and to relieve increasing traffic congestion on the Peninsula.
She called for the NSW Government to fulfil promises it made during the by-election for the Gosford electorate in May 2017 when she was elected as the State Member.
One of those promises was a safety review of Blackwall Rd, she said.
She said the review was to consider how to improve signage, parking along the sides of the road and overall traffic flow.
The intersection of Allfield Rd and Blackwall Rd, Woy Woy, was a particular choke point, she said.
"We received notification that work on the review would be carried out of a night but we have not received any further information," she said.
Anything that improved traffic flow would be welcome," she said.
