Making it safer and easier to ride a bike - Addison Road to Juliett Street (Local Route 16)

Riding a bicycle is a fantastic way to get around, keep fit and save money. It also helps reduce car use and benefits the environment. Council is improving bicycle routes to make it safer, more convenient and enjoyable for people of all ages and abilities to ride a bike.

One of the routes Council is proposing to improve is along Addison Road (at Livingstone Road) to Juliette Street, Marrickville – Local Route 16.



The process so far

Community members were invited to provide feedback on the draft concept plan in January and February this year. The feedback received was considered and where possible, incorporated into the revised concept plan.

The main changes to the revised concept plan are:

Change to concept plan
Reason
Removing the proposed angled parking in Coronation Avenue
Benefits of providing additional parking have been weighed against potential impacts to amenity and safety given school student pick-ups and drop-offs occur here.
Removing the proposed shared environment intersection at Coronation Avenue
An investigation found that too many cars use this intersection for it become a shared environment
Replacing the proposed priority bicycle crossings in Park Road and Neville Street with upgraded pedestrian refuges
This is considered a safer option by the Roads and Maritime Services and the proposed refuges would be large enough for people on bikes
Move the proposed pedestrian crossing at the western side of Park Road to the eastern side
A crossing on the eastern side would be better positioned for people walking to the bus stop
Widen shared path sections by replacing ten street trees
Location of new trees would allow shared path sections to more safely accommodate bike riders and pedestrians


The revised concept plan estimates an increase of approximately 15 on-street parking spaces (the exact number will be determined during detail design phase) as follows:

  • Addison Road: a net increase of one space (six spaces removed; seven new spaces created)
  • William Street: an increase of three spaces by introducing some angled parking
  • Bright Street: an increase of three spaces by introducing some angled parking
  • England Avenue: an increase of eight spaces by introducing some angled parking
