Temporary fix to solve risk: councillor drives bid to improve pedestrian access

TEMPORARY bollards have been installed by Orange City Council to improve pedestrian safety at the Sale Street entrance to the Woolworths car park, while the walkway has also been covered with hotmix to level the surface.

This follows comments from councillor Neil Jones at an Orange City Council meeting in February that pedestrian safety was an ongoing issue due to the number of trucks entering the car park and unloading at Harris Farm Markets and Woolworths Supermarket.

Cr Jones said the improvements would go a long way in increasing pedestrian safety.

“When I spoke to council about this issue I indicated the uneven surfaces were also a problem and needed to be fixed,” he said.

Cr Jones said he appreciated council did not want to spent additional funds on projects in the lead-up to amalgamation, however, the safety issues has been ongoing in the carpark.

“We need to find a long-term solution for the safety of everyone concerned,” he said.

A pedestrian crossing in front of Harris Farm Markets was installed two years ago, however, many pedestrians, including children, bypassed the crossing to access the Orange Arcade.

Last September Cr Jones called for a safety review of the area, saying the semi-trailer deliveries for Woolworths and Harris Farm Martkets were increasing the chances of people being struck.

More than 10 years ago Orange City Council held talks with Woolworths Supermarket in an effort to control the times semi-trailers could drive through the car park, however, due to the logistics of trucking schedules the car park had remained a challenge.

Councillor Jones said he had been advised by council the line marking would be completed once the refurbishment of Harris Farm Markets was is complete.
