What is proposed to improve the Dulwich Hill Station centre?

The currents plans aim to deliver a pedestrian orientated village with the following improvements:

  • Bedford Crescent, provide pedestrian safe priority connections
  • Dudley Street, install a designated bicycle lane
  • Dudley Street and Wardell Road - reconfigure the intersection, remove current pedestrian crossing and replace it with raised pedestrian pavements, shorter pedestrian crossing distances and traffic signals
  • Ewart Lane, define shared pedestrian zone by installing new pavement treatments
    Wardell Road, widening of railway bridge pedestrian zone with decking
  • Wardell Road at Wilga Avenue and Ewart Street, install raised threshold treatments to the entries, designed to slow traffic and define the village centre
  • Install new pedestrian pavements to the town centre streets
  • New trees to increase shade with Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) rain gardens to each tree base in order to improve storm water quality and provide passive irrigation to each tree
  • Implement a street art strategy reflective of the local environment
  • Support proposals by the Sydney Metro and South-West project to integrate the upgraded metro station with connections to Ewart Lane, Wardell Road and Bedford Crescent
  • Optional - putting electrical infrastructure underground to accommodate larger tree species (This is an optional extra as it is beneficial to the streetscape, but alternative tree species can be selected in detail design that will grow beneath the existing electrical infrastructure)
