Are the travel and parking lanes in Green Streets wide enough?
All the carriageways in our Green streets comply with the preferred maximum carriageway widths set out in the Sydney Streets Code 2013.
The ‘carriageway’ usually contains both a travel lane and parking lane. Widths may vary slightly depending on the local situation.
This means that:
- Parking lanes are 2.1 – 2.3m wide; and
- Traffic or travel lanes are 2.75 – 3.2 m wide.
This allows for larger vehicles such as full size fire engines to safely enter and exit Green Streets.
