Mr COLEMAN (Banks) (16:26): I was pleased to meet with residents of Connells Point and Kyle Bay in my electorate over the weekend. We met at Donnelly Park in Connells Point to launch a petition in order to address the issue of speeding on Kyle Parade. Kyle Parade is a winding road that runs through the suburbs of Connells Point and Kyle Bay. Many residents are concerned about the danger posed by speeding cars using this road. This has been an issue for the local community for many years. But a recent accident has put the issue in the spotlight again.

Residents would like to see traffic control measures put in place: potentially a roundabout, speed humps or chicanes. I will continue to advocate on behalf of residents in seeking to ensure that this issue is addressed with the road being fixed to discourage speeding. I will be encouraging Kogarah Council to address this issue so as to seek to ensure that incidents like the one we have seen recently do not occur again. I would like to thank everyone who came to Donnelly Park on Saturday to launch this petition. In particular, I would like to thank the Connells Point Progress Association President, Jim Colquhoun, and Treasurer Paulette McFarland. The Connells Point Progress Association does fantastic work for the residents of our local community. I look forward to continuing to work with the association on this important issue.
