Consultation status: open until 23 February 2017
We are proposing to:
- Carry out kerb buildout on both sides of Chapel Street to narrow the intersection.
- Install a pedestrian splitter island on Chapel Street as per the consultation plan.
- Install directional tactiles and indicators.
- Carry out road markings.
- Install No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) associated with the splitter island.
Why the changes are required
Chapel Street is mainly residential with no scheduled bus route along the road. The intersection of Chapel Street with Great South Road is very wide, approximately 21 metres. The bowling club and recreation centre are the two main attractions in the area.
There is a low to moderate demand crossing Chapel Street (approximately 30 pedestrians during 2-4pm and 16 pedestrians between 7-9am). The wide intersection discourages pedestrians to cross Chapel Street. Narrowing the intersection and providing a pedestrian crossing facility in the form of a splitter island will encourage more people to walk in the area.
