Ms Lawder asked the Minister for Roads and Parking, upon notice, on 17 March 2015:
(1) When will the promised straightening of Coyne Street at Macarthur/Fadden occur.
(2) What are the accident statistics for Coyne Street over the past 5 years, up to the end of February 2015.

(4) What has been the cost of installing the warning signs and speed humps in Coyne Street and any other work over the past five years.
(5) How many times have the signs on Coyne Street had to be replaced over the past five years.
Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
(1) The timing of any straightening of Coyne Street is not currently included in any works program. It will be dependent on the current evaluation of the initial stages of works implemented in 2014 in Macarthur and Fadden.
(2) There were 53 reported crashes on Coyne Street over the past 5 years up to the end of February 2015. Fifty one of these crashes occurred prior to implementation of the speed humps in August 2014.
(3) The recent upgrade of signs on the Coyne Street bend was as a result of the need to improve visibility from both directions of travel.
(4) The installation of the warning signs in 2010/11 cost $5,000.
The implementation of the speed humps, pedestrian refuge and associated signage in 2014 cost $48,200.
Over the past 5 years other works included Coyne Street being resurfaced in 2012/13 at a cost of $36,282 and the replacement of damaged signs at a cost of $800.
(5) Over the past 5 years there have been 4 damaged signs replaced on the bend on Coyne Street.
