Westlink M7 has installed identification labels on each light pole in all locations along the M7 shared path. This is part of an exciting new initiative aimed at helping M7 Operations and emergency responders communicate location information when responding to an emergency on the shared path.
Each light pole identification label features an individual alpha-numeric code that lets Westlink M7 quickly pinpoint any location on the path and help guide emergency services to an entry point on the path.
In an emergency, shared path users are encouraged to:
- look for the label on the nearest M7 shared path light pole
- use it a reference point when contacting the M7 Control Room
- let emergency responders know you are on the shared path
The labels are printed on reflective material and can be easily seen day and night.
Westlink M7, NSW Local Government and Emergency Services stakeholders collaborated to develop this initiative.
Please feel free to contact Westlink M7 with any questions or feedback.
