Improving pedestrian access and safety in Barclay Street at Marrickville Road, Marrickville

Thanks for your submission, this engagement is now closed.

As part of its commitment towards providing pedestrian improvements, Council has prepared design plans to improve pedestrian access and safety along Marrickville Road, Marrickville.

The proposal provides a pedestrian refuge island in Barclay Street and two kerb blister traffic islands in Marrickville Road. The changes proposed are recommendations from a report endorsed by Council in September 2010 to improve pedestrian access and safety along Marrickville Road between the Marrickville Shops and Sydenham Station.

The pedestrian refuge will make it easier and safer for pedestrians walking along Marrickville Road to cross at Barclay Street.

The design allows 8.8 metre long trucks to turn into and out of Barclay Street at Marrickville Road, but as road space is limited, larger trucks such as semi-trailers etc will be unable to turn into or out of Barclay Street from Marrickville Road.

The plan (download here) will provide -

  • A pedestrian refuge in Barclay Street at Marrickville Road

  • One kerb blister traffic island in Marrickville Road to the east of Barclay Street

  • One kerb blister traffic island in Marrickville Road to the west of Barclay Street

The new pedestrian refuge island requires the installation of ‘No Stopping’ on both sides of Barclay Street to the north of Marrickville Road for pedestrian safety and to provide turning space for trucks. In the proposal two parking spaces would be removed in Barclay Street to comply with relevant Standards and Guidelines.

The above works are expected to be built in 2015.
