Kirby St and Great North Rd - Pedestrian refuge island

Consultation status: closed 27 March 2017

We are seeking feedback on a proposal to improve safety for pedestrians crossing the intersection of Kirby Street and Great North Road in Glendene.

We propose to:

  • Rebuild the footpath and install a new pram crossing with tactile pavers.
  • Install a new pedestrian refuge island with new flush median road markings and sign. 
  • New No stopping at all times restriction (broken yellow lines) near the intersection, removing two parking spaces.

These changes will improve safety by encouraging slower vehicle speeds around the intersection. The new broken yellow lines and road markings will improve visibility and accessibility for pedestrians and vehicles.
