Young Street and Grasmere Road Intersection - Proposed Amendments
Feedback closes 29 March 2019.
Amendments were made to the intersection between Young Street and Grasmere Road in 2017.
Following the completion of the works, Council received feedback from members of the community raising concern about some aspects on the new design. The most common issues raised were:
- concerns that speeds had increased in Grasmere Road as a result of the intersection changes.
- concerns that drivers were confused over who has priority at the intersection.
- concerns about insufficient visibility to and from the pedestrian crossing point over Young Street to the south of Grasmere Road.
In response to these concerns, Council conducted a review of the intersection and engaged Transport and Urban Planning Pty Ltd to conduct an independent Road Safety Audit. The Road Safety Audit recommended a number of signage and linemarking changes to improve safety, which will be made early in 2019. Further details regarding the review, and a full version of the Road Safety Audit, are available in the Council report in the document library.
Before and after speed counts for the intersection were collected as part of the review, and are provided in notification letter in the document library.
Council is seeking community feedback on two possible amendments to the intersection as shown on the plan in the document library.
