This proposal to install a raised pedestrian and cyclist crossing at the intersection of Shoreline Drive and Gauthorpe Street was adopted by Council meeting on 20 October 2020. The Council meeting agenda is available on Council’s website. We are currently working on detailed design for the construction which is anticipated to start in 2021.
The City of Canada Bay is proposing to install a raised pedestrian and cyclist crossing at the intersection of Shoreline Drive and Gauthorpe Street in Rhodes.
The proposed crossing is designed to assist with the increasing volume of pedestrians and cyclists attempting to cross the road at this location as well as enhance overall safety. This crossing is part of broader works to enhance the area around the station precinct which is currently under construction.
As outlined in the concept plan (available in the document library on this page), it is proposed that it will be constructed as a raised crossing to reduce vehicle speeds. This crossing will give cyclists and pedestrians priority over vehicles. The landscaped garden beds are also proposed to slow down cyclists before entering the crossing to improve traffic movement and pedestrian safety.
This crossing proposal will require the removal of five on-street parking spaces. By doing so it will enhance sight distances for vehicles travelling on the road. The existing car share space will be relocated 20 metres north after the proposed no stopping zone.
