Unwins Bridge Rd and Richardsons Crescent, Tempe - improving safety


Council has been investigating ways to improve safety for pedestrians and road users at the intersection of Unwins Bridge Road and Richardsons Crescent.

We acknowledge that this intersection has been the subject of ongoing concern and appreciate the community’s patience as we continue to work on improving this site.

After assessing a range of options, Council has decided to improve this intersection by:

  • Providing fencing on the northern side of the footpath on Unwins Bridge Road to protect pedestrians;
  • Widening lanes on Richardsons Crescent and Unwins Bridge Road to improve the turning paths for large vehicles;
  • Reconstructing some kerb and gutter on the south side to help cater for the wider lanes on Richardsons Crescent; and
  • Slightly repositioning the pedestrian island and traffic lights on Richardsons Crescent to allow for the wider lanes.
See the plan for more details or view the options investigated by Council (go to page 233)

When are the works planned for?

This work is planned for April 2016 and residents directly affected will be further notified prior to works commencing.
