We are proposing to enhance safety at the existing pedestrian refuge on Harris Road, Five Dock.

As outlined in the below image, it is proposed to replace the existing refuge islands with a pedestrian crossing. It will be constructed as a raised crossing to reduce vehicle speeds, enhancing road safety. Street lighting will also be upgraded to assist with ensuring pedestrians are visible at night.

The median island between the proposed crossing and the roundabout is designed to prevent vehicles from overtaking a bus at the bus stop. Were a vehicle to be allowed to overtake a bus, it will create a safety issue as drivers will not have a clear view of pedestrians using the crossing. This proposal does not remove any on-street parking spaces.

To provide feedback this proposal, please fill in the below form. Alternatively, you can also provide feedback via email through council@canadabay.nsw.gov.au or by mail to Locked Bag 1470 Drummoyne NSW 1470.

Please submit your feedback by Friday 15 December 2022.

If you have any questions please contact Shankar Pandey, Council’s Traffic Engineer, on 9911 6448.
