Ness Avenue, Dulwich Hill - improving your street


Following the recommendations of Council at a meeting on 3 May 2016, an amended proposal has been developed to improve conditions in Ness Avenue. The new proposal has been designed to slow traffic, green the street and create additional parking near the Garnet Street intersection.

The amended proposal includes:

  • introducing 90 degree angle parking between Garnet Street and 29 Ness Avenue;
  • constructing a slow point with landscaped traffic islands and a tree in front of 14 Ness Avenue;
  • installing a STOP sign and painting chevron line markings at the intersection of Ness Avenue and Tennyson Street;
  • replacing two ailing street trees and improving conditions for three existing street trees; and
  • painting cycleway symbols on the road.

Parking changes

This amended proposal would create approximately four additional parking spaces at the western end of the street. Two parking spaces would be removed in front of 14 Ness Avenue where the slow point would be built.

See the plans for more details.
