Chatswood - Fullers Road
Roads and Maritime Services resurfaced Fullers Road at Chatswood between Millwood Avenue and Jenkins Street to reduce the risk of crashes. New line marking was also installed between Jenkins Street and Sylvia Street to further improve road safety.
Updates and announcements
There has been strong community support for the line marking scheme on Fullers Road. Roads and Maritime acknowledges that a small section of the community has concerns with aspects of the line marking. Roads and Maritime has committed to evaluate the scheme in 12 months to measure its effectiveness in improving road safety. The new line marking may cause some delays, but it is expected to reduce conflicts between turning vehicles and opposing traffic and will further reduce vehicle speeds on Fullers Road.
About this project
In September 2011, Roads and Maritime invited residents to have their say about options to improve road safety and pedestrian amenity on Fullers Road, Chatswood.
Based on comments from the community, Willoughby City Council and the Member for Willoughby, The Honourable Gladys Berejiklian, in April 2012, Roads and Maritime produced a proposal to address speed and safety concerns. The community was invited to comment on the proposal. Issues arising from this consultation were considered in the community issues report.
Features of the project include:
- High Friction surface on Fullers Road from Millwood Avenue to Jenkins Street
- Fullers Road reduced to one lane westbound
- Painted central carriageway median
- Dedicated right turn lanes into Anglo Street, Edgar Street, McLean Avenue and Park Avenue
- Turning movements to be restricted to left in and left out at Davies Street
- Minor adjustments to bus stop locations
- Associated signage and line marking.
