Construction complete

Improvements to pedestrian safety near Curl Curl North Public School at the intersection of Pitt Road and Playfair Road, North Curl Curl have been completed.

The existing pedestrian crossing has been raised and shifted to the east, away from the Playfair Road intersection. Kerb extensions have been added on the northern side of the road to increase visibility while not removing any parking spaces, and kerb blisters have been added on the southern side of Pitt Road to increase pedestrian visibility.

Pram ramps on Playfair Road have also been upgraded and realigned.

This project was delivered as part of the Federal Stimulus - School Infrastructure Program, with funding secured to support pedestrian improvements in local schools.
