Prioritising places for people
We are seeking feedback on a proposal to trial some changes to the street environment on The Strand, Dee Why through the Streets as Shared Spaces program. Our aim is to create a range of safe and enjoyable new spaces for people to enjoy and provide greater pedestrian and bike access.
The main proposed changes involve:
- one way northbound traffic flow between Oaks Ave and Dee Why Parade
- 30km speed limit
- existing parking lane converted to public space/seating
- reallocation of parking
- two-way cycleway replacing the existing on road lanes
- re-routing southbound bus services from The Strand to Clyde Road between Howard Avenue and Oaks Avenue.
To give you an idea of what this might look like, we have put together an initial concept plan for the trial. We are keen to get your comments and ideas regarding the various elements and their configuration. Your feedback will help us understand how to move forward with the concept to ensure it meets the needs of the community and supports program objectives.
Scroll down to view the proposed concept plan and traffic flow map, register for a face to face session and comment.
This project follows on from a Streets as Shared Spaces 'pop-up' in late 2020 on The Strand, where we closed the whole road for a weekend. View feedback from this event.
The Streets as Shared Spaces program provides funding for Councils to test public space improvements that encourage safe social connections.
We are proposing to have the trial in place for a six month period between July and December 2021.
