Walking and cycling improvements on Wilson and Burren Streets

10 months ago

Council Meeting 27 March 2017 -

Following the Environment Committee on Monday 20 March, councillors were briefed on the following Friday afternoon and amendments to the scope have been made. Please find an update on the scope of the project that were considered by councillors prior to the Council meeting.

The exhibition period for this project is now complete. Thanks for having your say.

UPDATE: The exhibition period for the concept design will now conclude on Monday 9 January 2017.

We're improving Wilson, Burren, Little Eveleigh and Pine Streets in Newtown and Darlington and want you to have your say.

Improvements will include:

  • safer pedestrian crossings
  • better lighting and traffic calming measures
  • wider footpaths at intersections
  • shorter crossing distances and better sightlines
  • more garden beds and planting
  • a continuous separated two-directional cycleway on Wilson Street
  • separated one-way pair cycleway on Burren St and Pine Street.

These works will provide safer access by bike to Macdonaldtown Station and Wilson Street. People riding bikes in Little Eveleigh Street will be able to link directly to the new Lawson Street cycleway, which connects Redfern and the city centre.

The improvements will also result in:

  • The loss of 18 car spaces on Burren Street
  • The loss of 19 car spaces on Wilson Street
  • The replacement of seven trees along the route and the planting of an additional 11 trees.
  • Restricted access to Brocks Lane from Wilson Street heading west or Burren Street heading north.

To improve safety in Leamington Lane; the shared zone will extend to Pine Street (subject to Roads and Maritime Services approval).
