Proposed pedestrian safety fence (Postponed)

In response to community concerns for pedestrian safety, we propose to install a pedestrian safety fence along Barrenjoey Road Avalon, in the section between Avalon Parade and Central Road.

Barrenjoey Road is a six-lane, divided road with high traffic volumes. Concerns have been raised in regard to pedestrians not using designated safe crossing points between Avalon shops and the beach.

Several pedestrian injuries have also been reported along this busy stretch of Barrenjoey Road.

The work, to be undertaken in two stages, will be funded under the 2020/21 Australian Government Black Spot Program. Information on this can be found in the FAQs below.
