Safer Speed Zones for Manly

Member for Manly James Griffin has today announced a new reduced school speed zone of 30 km/h will be implemented in Manly to provide a safer environment for local residents to walk, cycle and commute.

“As COVID-19 restrictions ease, we are seeing a higher volume of people walking, cycling and exercising in the area,” Mr Griffin said.

“To support the increase in activity and improve safety, the existing 50 km/h and 40 km/h speed limits will be reduced as Transport for NSW works to transform Sydney’s streets through active transport measures.”

Social Housing Stimulus Boosts Northern Beaches Economy

The NSW Government’s Social Housing Maintenance Stimulus Program is delivering multiple social and economic benefits for the Sydney and the Northern Beaches.

“This timely investment has seen almost $640,000 committed towards spending on important maintenance works and upgrades on social housing properties in the Manly area,” Mr Griffin said.
