Hampden Avenue, Marrickville - Improving pedestrian and traffic safety at two locations


Council has prepared design plans to improve pedestrian and traffic safety at two locations on Hampden Avenue, Marrickville. Locations of proposed works can be viewed on the map and details of the work are outlined below.

Proposed work:

1. Intersection of Hampden Avenue, Roseby Street and Day Street

  • Creating a flat, patterned surface treatment at the northern and southern ends of the intersection to warn approaching drivers to slow down
  • Constructing and modifying kerb pram ramps in Hampden Avenue at the north and south side of the intersection
  • Installing a kerb island to protect pedestrians crossing the road in two stages
  • Removing an existing guardrail from the footpath in Hampden Avenue to improve accessibility
  • Marking a dividing barrier line in Day Street
  • Installing STOP signs at the northern and southern ends of Hampden Avenue
  • Installing a STOP sign at Roseby Street
  • Associated signage and line markings as detailed in the design plan.

2. Intersection of Hampden Avenue and Premier Street.

  • Creating a flat, patterned surface treatment at the southern end of the intersection to warn approaching drivers to slow down
  • Constructing a kerb pram ramp in Hampden Avenue at the southern end of the intersection
  • Marking a dividing barrier line in Premier Street
  • Installing a STOP sign at the northern and southern ends of Hampden Avenue
  • Associated signage and line markings as detailed in the design plan.

The proposed changes are recommendations from the South Marrickville Local Area Traffic Management Strategy which was endorsed by Council in June 2011, following a period of public consultation. They are designed to make the intersections safer with clearer traffic controls.There will be no loss of on-street parking as and vehicle access to adjoining properties will be retained.
