New Pedestrian Crossings
Published 4 November 2021
Woollahra Council recently completed five pedestrian upgrades and introduced slower speeds in the Double Bay commercial centre to help make our local streets safer.
The installation of five new raised pedestrian crossings near schools throughout our local area will promote greater safety for children and families and encourage motorists to slow down. The crossings are located at:
- Bay Street, Double Bay, at William Street – near Double Bay Public School. (pictured above)
- Ocean Avenue, Double Bay, near Cross Street – near Double Bay Public School.
- Cambridge Street, Paddington, at Gurner Street – near Glenmore Road Public School.
- Dover Road, Rose Bay, at Carlisle Street – near McAuley Catholic Primary School.
- Glenmore Road, Paddington, at Campbell Avenue – near Glenmore Road Public School & Darlinghurst Public School.
We’re also about to complete a new High Pedestrian Activity Area throughout the Double Bay commercial centre, which will reduce the speed limit to 40km per hour.
The High Pedestrian Activity Area covers both sides of New South Head Road, bounded by Ocean Avenue and William Street (inclusive) in the north and extending to Kiaora Road, Manning Road and Court Road (inclusive) in the south. New South Head Road will remain at 60km p/hour.
New signage and patterned road stamping at entry points will alert drivers they are entering the High Pedestrian Activity Area and will need to reduce their speed.
These projects were fully funded by the Federal and NSW Government under the 2020/21 Road Safety Program.
