The Assistant Minister for Customs, Community Safety and Multicultural Affairs, Mr Jason Wood MP joined the Federal Member for Lindsay, Melissa McIntosh MP on Tuesday to announce the $1 million Community Safety Package to install lighting along the Great River Walk from Jamison Road to Nepean Avenue.

The Assistant Minister also joined the Member for Lindsay, Melissa McIntosh MP and Gai Hawthorne, CEO of Penrith CBD Corporation for the announcement of $35,000 to install CCTV cameras in High Street, Penrith.

“We committed over $1 million for the Great River Walk safety upgrade project and it is great to see that this will provide extra safety to people in Lindsay. People deserve to feel safe.” said Assistant Minister Wood.

Ms McIntosh said “I met with local business owners and with community representatives such as Gai Hawthorn of the Penrith CBD Corporation during the campaign. We have worked hard to deliver this infrastrcuture and we have ensured that local residents and families accessing the Nepean River can feel safe.

The lack of lighting near the Great River Walk has been a concern for some residents, particularly women and this funding will deliver lighting from end to end so everyone can enjoy our river,” Ms McIntosh said.

This commitment was part of a $1.2 million package as part of the Morrison Government’s Community Safety Package. Penrith Council will also receive funding for the installation of CCTV cameras in Kingswood – around the shopping village on Bringelly Road, Werrington – Shops alongs Victoria Street and St Mary’s – Veness Place carpark.

"This safety package is part of My Plan for Lindsay and I look forward to working with our local organisations to see the CCTV cameras and lighting delivered." said Ms McIntosh.
