Council and Police Call for Increased Public Safety Awareness on Newnes Plateau
“The Newnes State Forest is a popular recreation destination for Lithgow locals and visitors from Sydney and elsewhere,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Ray Thompson. “With increasing numbers of people using the forest for a range of activities, it is really important that people behave in safe ways that respect fellow visitors.”
“Police are finding an increasing number of unregistered vehicles and unlicensed drivers using Newnes Plateau,” said Chief Inspector Chris Sammut. “This is not only dangerous for the drivers and passengers in those vehicles and other law abiding visitors, but illegal too.”
“My officers will be making regular patrols of the Newnes Forrest in the warmer months to ensure public safety and significant penalties will be applied for road safety infringements.
