Local Safety Improvements – Burbong Street, Chapel Hill
Friday, 26 May 2017
As part of my recent election commitment, I secured funding in the 2016/17 budget to undertake a corridor upgrade along Burbong Street, Chapel Hill in order to respond to community concerns over safety and to tackle traffic congestion. As a result, Council traffic engineers have undertaken an audit of the corridor and I am now seeking your feedback on the works proposed.
The project proposes:
- installing splitter islands on Talasea, Cassandra, Robyn, Merrilyn, Steptoe, Columbia, Praeger and Kimba Streets at the intersection of Burbong Street to deter corner cutting and support safer pedestrian crossing
- installing three pedestrian crossing facilities with kerb ramps on Burbong Street, east of Robyn Street, east of Merrilyn Street and west of Praeger Street
- installing ‘Slow’ line marking on Burbong Street, south east of Kimba street; and
- providing additional kerb ramps, enhanced street lighting, additional line marking and footpath improvements along the corridor
Council officers will consult with residents directly adjacent to the proposed traffic improvements however I would also encourage you to submit your feedback as a nearby local resident.
A copy of the concept plans are available by viewing the files below or contacting my office on (07) 3407 0005.
