Beach Road, Aberdeen Road - Intersection safety improvements
Consultation status: closed 14 October 2016
We sought your feedback on a proposal to make some safety improvements to the Beach Road, Aberdeen Road intersection in Campbells Bay.
To help improve the safety in this area, we are proposing to:
- Upgrade an existing pedestrian refuge island and install new pram crossings with tactile pavers on Aberdeen Road and the intersection with Beach Road.
- Install a new pedestrian refuge island and pram crossings with tactile pavers outside 144 Beach Road.
- Reconstruct the footpaths next to the proposed pram crossings on Aberdeen Road and Beach Road.
- Install new kerb build-outs on both side of the intersection.
- Extend the No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) on both sides of Beach Road, north and south of the intersection of Aberdeen Road.
- Install new broken yellow lines around both of the new kerb build-outs on Aberdeen Road.
Why changes are needed
There is currently no safe crossing point for pedestrians at this intersection, and there have been two crashes involving pedestrians at this intersection in the past five years.
The new crossing points and intersection layout will reduce driver speeds and increase safety for pedestrians. The additional broken yellow lines will increase visibility between drivers and pedestrians at both crossings.
Thank you everyone for your feedback.
The proposal received mixed feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will now be re-designed.
We expect to re-consult with the public after a new proposal has been designed. We will then begin the consultation process again and take feedback on the new proposal. A new design and a letter detailing the changes will be sent to you in 2017.
