Update on proposed safety improvements in Hill Street and Livingstone Road, Marrickville


After considering community feedback gathered in November 2014, Council has revised its preliminary plan for the safety improvements in Hill Street and Livingstone Road, Marrickville.

The revised plan will reduce parking loss from nine to four spaces, improve safety at the pedestrian refuge crossings, and slow vehicle speeds at the intersection.

The revised works are -

  • One pedestrian refuge in Hill Street and two kerb blister islands to the west of Livingstone Road

  • One kerb blister island in Hill Street to the east of Livingstone Road

  • One pedestrian refuge in Livingstone Road and two kerb blister islandsof the south of Hill Street

  • One pedestrian refuge in Livingstone Road to the north of Hill Street.

  • Appropriate sign markings and road markings

The improvements originated as recommendations in the Riverside Local Area Traffic Management Strategy endorsed by Council in April 2014 following public consultation. The works are expected to be built in 2015/16 financial year.

What happens next?

The plan will be considered by Council’s Pedestrian, Cyclist and Traffic Calming Advisory Committee at its meeting to be held on 14 May 2015. The recommendations from this Committee meeting will then be referred to Council’s Infrastructure, Planning and Environmental Services Committee at its meeting to be held on 4 June 2015.

All Council and Committee meetings are open to the public and members of the community are welcome to apply to speak on matters included in the agenda. More information about applying to speak can be found on the Council's website.
