Denison Road, Dulwich Hill - Improving safety and calming traffic

Council is proposing to introduce a number of changes to Denison Road to reduce speeding and rat running. These include:

  • Changing the intersection priority at Dulwich Street and Piggot Street;
  • Introducing a morning peak ‘No Left Turn’ restriction at the intersection of Denison Road and New Canterbury Road; and
  • Replacing the existing speed hump in front of 141, 143, 152 and 152A Denison Road with a one lane slow point.

The proposed changes are recommendations from the North Dulwich Hill Local Area Traffic Management Plan which was endorsed by Council in October 2017, following a period of community engagement.
