Traffic around PLC Sydney
Families might have spied Mrs Chiba, Ms Humphreys and myself with police, Burwood Council representatives and managers from Transport NSW, after school last week on Young Street.
We were gathering to observe traffic movements. I have written to authorities to seek their support in improving traffic flow. The outcomes of the meeting, as recorded by the authorities, are as follows:
:: Council to remark zig-zag line-marking in Young Street for east-bound traffic.
:: Council to mark new left turn pavement arrow in Hennessy Street for west-bound traffic entering Meta Street.
:: RMS to investigate amending the phasing of the current signals to include additional green time for pedestrians to cross Paisley Road and The Strand.
:: RMS to investigate the addition of pedestrian crossing at the signalised intersection of Paisley Road/The Strand/Meta Street for the northern leg. This will include discussions with John Holland with regards to required closure of the footpath on the eastern side of The Strand to facilitate the Croydon Station Upgrade project.
:: Council and RMS to engage a consultant to investigate the options to improve vehicle and pedestrian flow at the intersection of Young Street, Meta Street and Hennessy Street. Investigations to determine if a warrant for signals is met, and if so will require modelling of subject intersection in association with existing signals at Paisley Road/The Strand/Meta Street.
