Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Joanna Gash said she has been left extremely disappointed after thieves removed another
speed check display unit from Bomaderry on the weekend.
The theft marks the second time one of Council’s speed check display units has been removed in a week, following the earlier removal of a unit in Sanctuary Point, and has left Council with no more of the devices.
It is suspected that the unit was removed from its location outside Bomaderry Primary School on Cambewarra Road at some point late on Friday night.
Mayor, Joanna Gash has appealed to anyone with information regarding the theft to contact Shoalhaven Police immediately.
“It is extremely shocking and frustrating to see Council’s two speed check display units removed within a week,” said Clr Gash.
“These devices have been placed around schools and targeted residential areas in an effort to curb speeding and alter dangerous driving behaviour.
“To have both devices stolen within the same week is obviously extremely disheartening, especially when you consider that these units have been acquired in order to maximise community safety.”
“I would certainly encourage anyone with information to come forward to the Shoalhaven Police.”
Council purchased both speed check display units after receiving a road safety grant from the RMS.
