As part of Bankstown City Council's commitment to pedestrian safety, a number of new 'LOOK' pedestrian stencils have been installed at pedestrian crossings in Greenacre.
"Just like drivers have the responsibility to be safe and extra alert when driving through our suburban roads, pedestrians play just as an important role when it comes to road safety," said the Mayor of Bankstown Clr Khal Asfour.
"Council regularly maintains and implements a number of pedestrian and road safety improvement initiatives across the Bankstown area, especially for our city's senior citizen and young residents.
"The new LOOK stencils will help raise awareness of crossing safely, and at the same time help pedestrians identify the correct direction of the traffic flow.
"I encourage our community to take extra care and responsibility when using crossings, obeying road rules and being aware of their surroundings," Mayor Asfour said.
A number of the LOOK stencils have been installed across the Bankstown area, with Greenacre the latest suburb to receive the stencils as part of the Roads and Maritime Services’, Look Before Your Cross Campaign.
The large font stencils are used as an on the spot reminder to pedestrians - increasing awareness and promoting pedestrians to have a final LOOK before stepping out onto the road.
