Consultation status: closed 23 February 2017
We are proposing to:
- Install a 75 mm high speed table, 9 metres in length and install a zebra crossing.
- Carry out kerb a buildout at the loss of one angle parking space on Sheehan Avenue to accommodate the speed table.
- Install directional tactiles.
- Install No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines).
- Carry out road markings.
Why the changes are required
Traffic and pedestrian observations have found that there is moderate demand to cross Sheehan Avenue at its intersection with Kelvin Road.
The set of shops and the proximity to the main entrance to Kelvin Road School generates very high crossing demand at this location (100 pedestrians between 2-4pm). The narrow width of Sheehan Avenue prevents us from installing a wider splitter island at this intersection (intersection is approximately 75 metres away from the schools main gate).
