Consultation status: closed 10 April 2017
We are seeking feedback on a proposal to install a pedestrian crossing near the intersection of Tarahanga Street and Sylvan Avenue in Northcote.
We propose to:
- Install a pedestrian crossing with a refuge island. This will include pram access, tactile pavers and a new adjoining footpath.
- Build out the kerb on the south side of the intersection, extending to the grass berm.
- Add new road markings, including new No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) on the south side of Tarahanga Street and a new flush median.
Why the changes are needed
The existing crossing on Tarahanga Street has a very long crossing distance, making it unsuitable for pedestrians. This proposal will shorten the crossing distance and increase the visibility of pedestrians to vehicles.
