NSW Shadow Minister for Roads, Maritime and Freight, Jodi McKay, and NSW Labor Candidate for Heathcote Maryanne Stuart met with the Executive of Sri Venkateswara Temple today to commit to delivering proper road signs to aid drivers in finding the turnoff to the Temple.

Currently, members of the community and visitors to the temple traveling down the Princes Motorway often miss the turn because there is no sign on the Princes Motorway.

Directing the initiative, Ms McKay says she has listened to the community, “which has been calling for proper signage on the Princes Motorway so community members and visitors don’t miss the turn and have to travel for 12kms before they’re able to turn around.

“Sri Venkateswara Temple has been a destination for Hindus from Australia, Hindus from all over the world, and from many non-Hindu visitors and tourists since 1985. It’s a special place for Hindus in Australia, and should be easily accessible.”

Ms Stuart said, “Heritage listed Sri Venkateswara Hindu Temple is a very special place for Hindus across Australia and the world, for the Illawarra, and for all of NSW.

“This is something practical that will go a long way for people coming out here to look for the Temple.”
