Roads and Maritime Services is introducing new safety measures to reduce the number of serious injuries to pedestrians on this busy stretch of Anzac Parade, Maroubra.
MAR 2020Consultation report on proposed safety measures
Transport for NSW has released the consultation report on proposed safety measures for Anzac Parade, Maroubra. In all, 15 submissions were received during the consultation period, which was held in July and August, 2019. These have been carefully considered by Transport for NSW.More information
A summary of the submissions and the Transport for NSW responses are contained in the consultation report (PDF, 697Kb).
Following careful consideration, Transport for NSW has determined it will proceed with the measures, with one additional inclusion. A number of respondents raised the issue of speed limits in the area. Transport for NSW will undertake a review of speed limits on Anzac Parade. This will be done after the completion of the South East Light Rail network.
Transport for NSW thanks all the respondents for their contribution to the process.
Between 2014 and 2018, five people were seriously injured in incidents involving cars and pedestrians over a short stretch of Anzac Parade’s northbound carriageway at Maroubra (between Maroubra and Boyce roads). New safety measures aim to reduce the risk of these incidents in the future.
The pedestrian safety improvements involve:
- a new 40‑metre pedestrian safety fence outside the entrance to Pacific Square shopping centre
- deterring pedestrian access across the northbound carriageway from the Anzac Parade median car park
The proposed changes also include establishing a new ‘No Stopping’ zone on the right lane near the Boyce Road intersection. This will involve a net-loss of 11 parking spaces.
The key benefits to the community include:
- deterring dangerous pedestrian activity along this stretch of road
- encouraging the use of nearby safe, signalised pedestrian crossings
- fewer incidents causing serious injury or worse.
