Sight distance is the distance measured along the road, over which a driver has visibility of an object or another road user. Safe road conditions rely on road users having adequate visibility.
Obstructions to visibility can create hazards for pedestrians and other road users, as well as drivers. Sight obstructions may include road layout, signage or vegetation. Council uses Ausroads guides, Transport for NSW (TfNSW) technical directions and Australian Standards to guide sight distance investigations.
If you have concerns over sight distance you can submit your concerns to Council online.
