Finlayson Street & Coxs Lane – Installation of 'No Parking' zone

Council is preparing to make permanent changes to parking arrangements in Lane Cove's Finlayson Street and Coxs Lane in preparation for the opening of The Canopy carpark in December 2019. 

These changes to improve traffic movements around the area were adopted by Council in May 2017 following extensive community consultation. Works are shown in the image below, these include:

  • Introduction of 'No Parking' restrictions on the northern and southern sides of Finlayson Street between Rosenthal Avenue and Coxs Lane.

  • Introduction of 'No Parking' restrictions on the eastern and western sides of Coxs Lane between Finlayson and Sutherland Streets.

  • Introduction of 'No Parking' restrictions on the western side of Coxs Lane between Finlayson Street and Birdwood Avenue.

  • Installation of a roundabout at the intersection of Finlayson Street and Coxs Lane.

The installation of the 'No Parking' zones will allow safe passage of two-way traffic. This work will commence the week beginning 11 November 2019.

The construction of the roundabout at the intersection of Finlayson Street and Coxs Lane will commence when the current construction traffic diversions are no longer in place. The roundabout will act as a traffic calming device to improve safety at the intersection and reduce traffic speeds along Coxs Lane. The speed of the vehicles in Cox’s Lane will be monitored once The Canopy is open to determine if further measures are required.

Council appreciates these changes will impact residents in the immediate vicinity, however they will make a significant contribution to ensuring appropriate traffic flow to accommodate The Canopy and Village Centre traffic generally.
