Feedback closed 27 September 2020

Council was successful in gaining funding under the Transport for NSW (TfNSW) Safe Speeds in High Pedestrian Activity and Local Areas Program for the Kirribilli and Milsons Point 40km/h High Pedestrian Activity Area with traffic calming devices.

The project has been split into two stages, see News Tab for further background and details. Stage 1 construction is almost complete.

Council is seeking community feedback on Detailed Concept Designs for the Stage 2. For Council to meet its grant funding requirements, the works must be finalised by the end of November 2020.

  • BACKGROUND

    27 Aug 2020

    Council secured significant grant funding in 2019/20 from Roads and Maritime Services (RMS)* for the design and implementation of a proposed 40km/h High Pedestrian Activity Area in Kirribilli and Milsons Point village centres. The works will improve amenity and safety for all road users, and particularly people walking in the area, which includes Broughton Street, Olympic Drive, Alfred Street South and McDougall Street.

    This project complements Council’s Draft 40km/h and 10km/h Shared Zones Masterplan which was recently exhibited and is currently under review. To take advantage of the significant funding available, Council is proceeding with implementation in this area. The RMS funding conditions require works to be completed by 30 June 2020.

    To distinguish the different driving conditions and create a self-enforcing maximum 40km/h speed environment within the village centres, the proposed concept includes the installation of road traffic calming treatments such as thresholds and pedestrian crossing facilities (refer to document library for area map, site register with sample images and detailed concept designs).

    This concept design results in no parking loss, expanded pedestrian/footpath areas and additional gardens/landscaping. This will make the villages more attractive and safer for residents and visitors. Note that some trees might be impacted by the works, however, should this occur, they will be replaced with new plantings.

    Benefits of 40km/h speed limits

    • Travelling at lower speeds improves driver’s ability to stop at a safer distance to avoid crashes, otherwise reduce the severity of a crash.
    • Statistics show that there was a 33% reduction in crashes causing serious injuries and deaths between 2005 and 2015 where 40km/h zones have been introduced. These zones include busy shopping precincts and neighbourhoods

    *RMS is now known as Transport for NSW (TfNSW)

    Following community consultation, Council resolved, at its meeting of Monday 23 March 2020 (held Monday 6 April 2020) to proceed with the detailed design and construction of this project with some changes to the overall scheme (see report and updated overall site plan available in the Document Library - Post Exhibition).

    Due to RMS requirements to deliver this project by 30 June 2020 the scheme will be separated into two stages. Council will proceed with construction of Stage 1 and seek RMS approval and detailed designs for Stage 2.

    Formal requests for quotation for construction works for Stage 1 will be released late April 2020. Stage 1 construction works will begin first week of June 2020. Notice of works will be circulated to the community prior to commencement of works.

    The tender for Stage 2 is scheduled for June 2020, this includes new sites as per Council’s resolution.

    The funding agreement with Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) was subject to the construction works for this project to be finalised by 30 June 2020, however due to the outcomes of the consultation requiring changes to the original scheme as endorsed by Council, the detailed design and tender process was delayed.

    Council and TfNSW agreed to separate the project into two stages. The delivery date for Stage 1 was extended to 28 August 2020. Construction works for Stage 1 began 22 June 2020. Council is undertaking detailed design for Stage 2. Stage 2 construction will be undertaken after site specific community consultation is completed.

    Initial consultation with TfNSW was undertaken for Stage 2. Some of the sites did not meet the TfNSW pedestrian crossing requirements due to low pedestrian numbers. However special consideration has been given to the proposed devices and consequently, TfNSW is willing to provide exemptions for the proposed raised pedestrian crossings at the following sites;

    • Site 1 - Northern approach of the roundabout at Clark Road and McDougall Street
    • Site 4 - Broughton Street south of Willoughby Street
    • Site 20 - Broughton Street north of Kirribilli Avenue
    • Site 18c - Eastern approach of Alfred Street South and Fitzroy Street roundabout

    Note: the raised pedestrian crossing at site 18b (southern approach of the Alfred Street South/ Fitzroy Street) did not received an exemption and therefore is not supported. Site 18a was part of Stage 1 consultation.
