Laurence Street, Manly - Speed cushions

Consultation status: closed 9 August 2017

Proposal reference: RTV-068

We are proposing to:

  • Install speed cushions along Laurence Street.
  • Install associated signage.
  • Reconstruct pram crossing and install tactile pavers on Laurence Street.

Why the changes are needed

Laurence Street has an existing speeding issue, the speed limit on this street is 50km/h and 85 percent of recorded speeds are at about 56km/h so it is important to slow vehicles down at this location for safety.

There is a higher number of vehicles and pedestrians during the weekends as Laurence Street is close to a park and also part of a bus route, therefore, speed cushions can provide a safer road environment on this street.
