Improving safety and pedestrian access on Old South Head Road, Bondi
20 May 2016
Member for Vaucluse, Gabrielle Upton is pleased to advise that work will start this Sunday 22 May to improve safety and pedestrian access at the intersection of Flood Street and Old South Head Road, Bondi.
“Work will begin this week on the project and involves the installation of traffic lights at the intersection to make it safer for both motorists and pedestrians,” Ms Upton said.
“The project also includes replacing the existing pedestrian refuge with a concrete median, installing kerb ramps so pedestrians can easily cross the road, building new footpath and changing some sign posts,” Ms Upton said.
“Roads and Maritime Services have advised that branches and roots from the large fig tree on the northern side of Old South Head Road will be trimmed to improve visibility for drivers and ensure the road surface remains safe.”
The bus lane will be extended by 30 metres and new ‘Left lane must turn left’ signage and ‘buses excepted’ line marking would be installed in the left turn lane to reinforce the road rules.
A new ‘no right turn’ sign at the intersection of Flood and Orr streets will also be installed.
This work will be carried out for up to five nights per week for 12 weeks starting Sunday 22 May with work hours from 8pm to 5am and work is expected to be completed by Sunday 14 August weather permitting.
There will also be work from 7am to 6pm on weekdays and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays.
Changed traffic conditions including reduced speed limits and lane closures may be in place for the safety of workers and motorists.
