Atchison Street and Oxley Street, St Leonards - Proposed Kerb Extensions

Feedback closes Thursday 18 April 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, we are proposing to install new kerb extensions at the intersection between Atchison Street and Oxley Street, St Leonards. The intent of the works is to improve access, amenity and safety for people walking in the area. 

The proposed changes at this intersection include:

  • New kerb extensions on Atchison Street.  These will shorten pedestrian crossing distances and provide improved visibility to/from pedestrian and road areas. 
  • Expanded pedestrian/footpath areas.
  • New garden beds and landscaping.

A concept plan showing the proposed changes is available in the document library.

The changes will include the removal of the existing central traffic islands on Atchison Street, which do not meet contemporary minimum width requirements for a pedestrian refuge.

The proposal will not reduce the number of parking spaces in the area.

If there is general community support for the proposed kerb extensions, it is intended that construction will be undertaken prior to the end of June 2019.

Please note that all comments received will be considered, however it is not intended to reply to individual respondents.
