Old Canterbury Road and Weston Street, Dulwich Hill - improving traffic and safety

A draft plan has been developed to improve safety for all road users at this intersection by introducing traffic lights on Edward Street, Weston Street and in both directions on Old Canterbury Road. This would make it safer for pedestrians crossing these roads and cars entering or exiting the intersection.

The proposed improvements are part of the planning approvals that Council and the Department of Planning and Environment have given EG, the developer, for the Flour Mill site at Summer Hill, 2-32 Smith St, Summer Hill.

The proposed work includes:

  • Installing traffic lights at the intersection;
  • Closing the road in front of property numbers 115 to 123 Old Canterbury Road;
  • Replacing the closed road with a new rain garden and shared 3.5 metre pathway;
  • Relocating the bus stop on the northern side of Old Canterbury Road;
  • Reconstructing the kerb, gutter, footpath and road surface;
  • Installing associated traffic signs;
  • Painting new line markings; and
  • Relocating any affected services.

Changes to parking and access

The road in front of properties 115 to 123 Old Canterbury Road would be closed because there would be an increased risk of motorists colliding with pedestrians or vehicles as they enter or exit this road onto Weston Street or Old Canterbury Road. Closing this road would prevent vehicle access and remove parking outside these properties, however pedestrian access will be maintained.

There would be an overall loss of approximately six parking spaces as a result of this proposal:

  • four spaces removed on the road outside properties 115 to 123 Old Canterbury Road;
  • three spaces removed on Weston Street;
  • one space removed on Edward Street;
  • two spaces gained on the northern side of Old Canterbury Road (west of Edward Street).

See the parking plan for more details

The exact impact on parking would be determined during the detailed design stage, if the proposal is approved.
