Council is proposing to extend the kerbs at the Percival and Albany Road intersections on Clarendon Road. This would make it safer for pedestrians by reducing the crossing distance. The proposal would also improve drainage and green the street with landscaping and new street trees.
The proposed works include:
- constructing landscaped kerb extensions, sandstone kerbs, concrete gutters and new kerb ramps on both sides of Clarendon Road at these intersections;
- installing a median island at the Albany Road intersection to improve turning paths for motorists;
- reconstructing footpaths near the kerb extension areas;
- planting new trees on the landscaped kerb extensions at Percival and Albany Road;
- providing GIVE WAY signs, painting new line markings and reinstating line markings; and
- repairing any damaged existing private stormwater lines leading from your property (between the front boundary and gutter) within the area of work.
There would be no reduction in on-street parking spaces as a result of this proposal. However, at the Albany Road intersection, two parking spaces would be removed in Clarendon Road and two new parking spaces would be created in Albany Road.
Council is planning to resurface Clarendon Road between Albany and Percival Roads this financial year, subject to final funding allocations.
