Project updates

Project details

Council is proposing to improve pedestrian and motorist safety in Boomerang Street, between the City West Link Road and Crescent Street. This addresses residents’ concerns about speeding in Boomerang Street which Council has investigated and confirmed is an issue.
The proposal is based on recommendations from the former Ashfield Council’s Traffic Management Strategy which was endorsed by Council on 23 August 2016, following a period of community engagement. It is also continuation of the Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) measures recently completed in Waratah Street and Tillock Street, Haberfield.

The proposed work includes:

  • introducing bus friendly speed cushions adjacent to 27 Boomerang Street;
  • painting associated line markings.

Parking changes

There are no changes to the existing parking in the street.

A report, together with the community’s comments and this proposal, will be considered by Council’s Local Traffic Committee (LTC) meeting on 6 February 2018. The Committee will make recommendations for Council to consider at its February 2018 meeting.

Council will notify everyone who provided comments of the final decision.

The LTC meeting agenda will be available to view on Council’s website in the week before the meeting. Members of the public may register to speak at this meeting.

When is the work planned for ?

These works are expected to be built in the 2018/19 financial year subject to outcome of this community engagement, final approvals and budget allocation. Residents will be notified before any work starts.
