Blackheath Area Neighbourhood Centre has been awarded a safety grant to deliver road safety projects that will help increase road awareness and support safer road use in the community.
The $5000 grant will be used to create a short film about road safety to encourage safe pedestrian skills amongst older residents and empower a safer community.
Parliamentary secretary for regional roads Kevin Anderson made the announcement last week for local safety projects in the Mountains as part of the NSW government’s $1.6 million Community Road Safety Grants Program.
“This is great news for the Blue Mountains community and there is nothing more important than safety on our roads,” Mr Anderson said.
Blackheath Area Neighbourhood Centre will use the funds to produce and edit the footage from the film,” Mr Anderson said.
