We're proposing improvements in your area

Listening to what you have to say is important to us. Your local knowledge can help us make better decisions, so together we can achieve the best outcomes for your neighbourhood.

We are proposing to:

  • Install a new pedestrian island which is raised on a platform in the middle of the road. This would make it safer to cross the road by breaking up the journey.
  • Install new kerb ramps, which are sloped sections of footpath, so that pedestrians, especially those with prams or wheelchairs, can move easily from the footpath to the road.
  • Paint new road markings and install new signs to accompany the proposed pedestrian island crossing and reconstruct the footpath on both sides of the new crossing.
  • Extend the broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) near the crossing to the visibility of pedestrians. This will remove 9 parking spaces.
  • Install tactile pavers at the crossing points. Tactile pavers are yellow guidance paving markers to help visually impaired people to find their way to crossings and safely across roads.
