The section of Longueville Road between Little Street and Birdwood Avenue has been an ongoing cause for concern for Council and the wider community due to the high number of accidents recorded at these two intersections.
Official Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) crash data and North Shore Local Area Command reports show that there have been a total of 38 recorded accidents at the two intersections since January 2006. Improving road safety in this location is therefore one of Council’s highest priorities.
Following the assessment of comprehensive traffic studies prepared by Council staff, RMS formally advised Council in July 2013 to progress a scheme that comprises the following measures:-
Installation of traffic signals at the Birdwood Avenue intersection allowing all movements; and
Introduce a left-in, left-out arrangement at the Little Street intersection.
A Concept Plan and accompanying illustrations of the Birdwood Avenue and Little Street intersections have been developed to help community members understand the proposed scheme.
Council recently sought your views on the proposal, which will be considered as part of the detailed design stage of the project.
The Longueville Road Intersection Improvement Scheme was considered for by Council at the Ordinary Council Meeting of 18 November 2013. Council resolved to endorse the proposed Scheme and commencement of detailed design work. A further report will be considered following the approval of the detailed design by RMS and prior to the tender for construction of the traffic signals and associated works being awarded.
