Pedestrian safety to receive a boost on Victoria Road at Waverly
21 March 2014
Pedestrian safety is soon to be improved on Victoria Street at Waverley with a new crossing to be installed at the existing traffic lights.
“The intersection of Victoria Street, Bronte and Carrington roads is a busy thoroughfare for light vehicles, buses, pedestrians and cyclists,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
“To improve safety for the many pedestrians accessing shops and bus stops in the area, Roads and Maritime Services will install a new crossing at the traffic lights on the western side of the intersection of Victoria Street, Bronte and Carrington roads.
“Work to install the crossing is expected to be carried out in the coming months with the community to be advised in advance when work is expected to start.
“Two parking spaces will need to be removed on Victoria Street in front of Charing Cross Hotel for the crossing to be installed.
“Every effort will be made to minimise noise from the work on residents and businesses.
“The work forms part of Roads and Maritime’s commitment to improving safety across the network for all road users,” the spokesperson said.
