Council is proposing to improve pedestrian and motorist safety in Learmonth Street, between Boomerang Street and Tillock Street. This addresses residents’ concerns about speeding in Learmonth Street which Council has investigated and confirmed is an issue. The proposal is a continuation of the Local Area Traffic Management measures recently completed in Waratah Street and Tillock Street, Haberfield.
The proposed work includes introducing bus friendly speed cushions in the middle of the following blocks:
- Boomerang Street and Dudley Street;
- Dudley Street and Kingston Street; and
- Kingston Street and Tillock Street.
The work would also include painting associated line markings.
This proposal would replace a redundant driveway on the side of 38 Dudley Street with kerb and gutter which would result in one parking space being gained.
There are no other changes to existing parking in the street.
Have your say
Council has not yet made any commitment to change the traffic arrangements in your street. A report, together with the community’s comments and this proposal, will be considered by Council’s Local Traffic Committee meeting on 6 February 2018. The Committee will make recommendations for Council to consider at its February 2018 meeting. Please check Council's website early next year to find out the date and location of the Council meeting.
Council will notify everyone who provided comments of the final decision.
These works are expected to be built in the 2018/19 financial year subject to outcome of this community engagement, final approvals and budget allocation. Residents will be notified before any work starts.
