Roads
The City of Botany Bay is becoming a safer place to drive. Data from Roads and Maritime Services shows that the number of vehicle accidents in the City has been decreasing since 2010.

We work closely with state authorities to continue reducing road accidents but there is also a lot you can do to keep our roads safe. Drivers and cyclists should: 

  • adopt low risk driving techniques
  • keep an eye out for our different road users including pedestrians
  • be extra cautious around driveways
  • take care around school zones during pick up and drop off times
