Pedestrian safety upgrade on Allandale Street at Kearsley
Roads and Maritime Services starts work to upgrade and relocate pedestrian facilities on Allandale Street at Kearsley from Monday 16 June.
The NSW Government has provided $140,000 for this upgrade and the recent upgrade to pedestrian facilities completed in January on Caledonia Street in Kearsley.
The work involves upgrading the pedestrian refuge to meet current standards, which will include a wide centre traffic island and extending the kerbs to minimise the pedestrian crossing distance.
The existing pedestrian crossing on Allandale Street will be moved around 30 metres further north of Mulbring Street, which will allow pedestrians to cross in a safer location away from turning traffic.
Work will be carried out on weekdays from 7.30am to 5pm and is expected to take two weeks to complete, weather permitting.
Allandale Street will remain open during work with changed traffic conditions including lane closures. Traffic controllers and signs will help to direct motorists.
A 40km/h speed limit will be in place during work and short delays may be experienced.
Roads and Maritime will make every effort to minimise the impact of these upgrades on motorists and apologises for any inconvenience caused.
Motorists are advised to plan their journey, allow extra travel time, and obey all signs.
