Project information

About the original project

Roads and Maritime originally proposed to replace the existing signalised pedestrian crossing on New Illawarra Road, Manai, with a pedestrian bridge, aimihng to improve the road’s traffic flow.  It also aimed to improve safety and connectivity between the eastern and western sides of New Illawarra Road for both pedestrians and cyclists.

The work was to include:

  • construction of a steel pedestrian bridge, with access ramps on the each side of New Illawarra Road
  • construction of a shared path to connect to existing paths on the eastern side of New Illawarra Road
  • removal of the existing pedestrian crossing, including traffic signals and pedestrian fencing

Community engagement

The project is no longer being considered.
