Starkey Street pedestrian bridge submission report now available
13 October 2015
Roads and Maritime Services is continuing with plans to install a new pedestrian bridge over Warringah Road east of Starkey Street.
After displaying the Review of Environmental Factors in June, Roads and Maritime has progressed to the detailed design stage of the project.
“The pedestrian bridge will improve traffic flow along Warringah Road, minimising delays by providing access to public transport and improving safety by separating pedestrians from a busy main road,” a Roads and Maritime spokesperson said.
“A large number of pedestrians cross at this busy intersection every day and the new pedestrian bridge will be vital for local residents to access local businesses, schools, community faciltities and bus services.
“Roads and Maritime would like to thank everyone who took the time to consider the proposal, having received 38 submissions as covered in the submissions report.”
The bridge will use Roads and Maritime’s standard pedestrian bridge design and includes bicycle parking facilities, curved stair access, lift access on both sides of the bridge and safety fencing and screens.
Work to build the pedestrian bridge is expected to start late next year for completion in late 2017.
“Roads and Maritime will continue to consult the community and provide updates as the project progresses,” a Roads and Maritime spokesperson said.
The community and stakeholders are invited to view the submissions report online, and keep up to date with the progress of the project at http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/projects/sydney-north/starkey-street/index.html.
