Improving safety in Railway Avenue, Stanmore


As part of its commitment to reducing traffic speed and improving safety, Council recently installed speed cushions at several locations along Railway Avenue between Douglas Street and Kingston Road, Stanmore. Traffic in Railway Avenue has been slowed since the speed cushions were installed; however one location needs an adjustment to further improve safety.

The location of the proposed adjustment is near 104 Railway Avenue and the work includes:

  • Removing the two speed cushions installed in the east bound lanes,
  • Constructing a concrete island in the centre of the road; and
  • Marking lines as shown in the attached plan.

These changes are designed to improve the safety of the traffic in the east bound lanes.
