The objective of the project is to renew aging infrastructure and to reduce vehicle speed and noise by implementing traffic calming treatments and a streetscape to compliment the heritage of the area.
Council undertook consultation sessions with the local community in August last year to ensure the design elements proposed meet the project objectives of and the expectation of residents and businesses in the area.
Traffic calming will include a Raised Safety Platform (RSP) at the intersection with Wilmot Street, narrower 3.1 m wide travel lanes and a V drain each side of the road that separates the carparks from the travel lanes.
The RSP will be at the same level as the top of the existing kerb so as to create approach and departure ramps to slow vehicles.
The asphalt surface of the RSP and carparks will be coloured printed asphalt and landscape elements include a garden wall at the RSP and low shrubs at the ends of parking bays and at kerb outstands.
