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.
