Council's contractor, Ezy Pave will undertake the works involving the installation of a raised pedestrian crossing and associated kerb and gutter and drainage and will commence 25 July 2019. It is expected to take 3-4 weeks to complete.

As part of Council’s commitment to improve pedestrian and traffic safety, it is proposed to install a raised pedestrian crossing on the northern side of the intersection of Abbott Street and Palmer Street.

The proposed raised pedestrian crossing will increase visibility of approaching drivers, slow down traffic and reduce the crossing distances. A plan of the proposal is available in the document library.

If there is general community support for this proposal, it is intended that works will be finalised by the end of June 2019.

Any comments you may have regarding the proposals will assist in determining the desired traffic arrangements at the intersection and Abbott Street and Palmer Street. If a change in the existing traffic arrangements is not considered warranted by the community then this proposal may not proceed.
