The key issue on Turner Street is high vehicle speeds.

What is the proposed treatment?

The proposal includes:

  • Road humps to calm traffic to operating speeds of less than 40km an hour.
  • Delineation of parking and traffic lanes.
  • Intermittent tree planting to improve amenity and passive speed calming between Rich Street and Trenerry Crescent. This will be subject to finding locations to plant trees near underground services.
  • Install sharrows for cyclists to share road space with cars in the low speed environment.
