Albany Street and Oxley Street, St Leonards - Proposed Intersection changes
Feedback closed 1 March 2019.
The North Sydney Community Strategic Plan 2018 – 2028 identifies community demand for continued improvement to walking facilities in North Sydney. As part of Council’s response to this demand, a concept design has been prepared for new pedestrian crossings at the intersection between Albany Street and Oxley Street, St Leonards. The intent of the works is to improve access, amenity and safety for people walking in the area.
Council has received prior community feedback about it being difficult to cross at the intersection, and pedestrian activity in this area will continue to grow as nearby developments are completed and with the opening of the Crows Nest Metro Station.
The proposed changes at this intersection include:
- a new raised pedestrian crossing on each approach to the intersection. These would be level with footpaths
- expanded pedestrian/footpath areas
- new garden beds and landscaping
- reconstruction of the internal roundabout circle
Note: The changes would require the removal of car parking spaces on approach to the intersection to ensure statutory setbacks to the new pedestrian crossings are provided. The setbacks are to ensure visibility to and from pedestrian crossing areas. The spaces required for each of the crossings are shown in red on the plan. The plan can be found in the document library.
The project includes the expansion and landscaping of pedestrian areas around the intersection, including the installation of new garden beds. Some trees may be impacted by the works, however, should this occur, these will be replaced with new plantings.
Please note that all comments received will be considered, however it is not intended to reply to individual respondents.
