Council is seeking resident feedback on potential pedestrian and traffic calming treatments along
Croydon Road between Elizabeth Street and Parramatta Road, Croydon.
Following representations from residents requesting improved pedestrian and traffic conditions
along Croydon Road, Croydon, a local area traffic management scheme has been developed for
consideration. Options for the alternate treatment of the Church Street/Croydon Road intersection
have also been developed given an initial proposal for a roundabout has proven not to be feasible
due to the shape of the existing intersection.
Council is proposing crossover points for pedestrians, and traffic calming treatments along Croydon Road and some side streets near their intersections with Croydon Road at nine (9) locations.
The proposed treatments will help residents cross Croydon Road for example to schools and parks, and improve intersection safety while minimising the impact on parking. These include:
- Improved designated crossover points with pedestrian refuges or road narrowing devices
- Speed cushions at various intersections to reduce vehicular speeds
- Traffic calming devices at some side street intersections with Croydon Road to control traffic and speeding on approach to the intersections
- Two options to improve the intersection of Church Street and Croydon Road
Croydon Road and Church Street intersection (LOCATION 7)
OPTION ONE: new right turn lane
OPTION TWO: retain existing lanes
|Improvements will:||Improvements will:|
Both options improve sight distance for westbound traffic in Church St at Croydon Road:
