We have sought feedback on pedestrian safety improvements at Wilkinson Avenue, Birmingham Gardens.
We have sought feedback on a proposal for a new pedestrian crossing on Wilkinson Avenue at the intersection with King Street, Birmingham Gardens. The proposal also included a new footpath and the relocation of a bus stop.
This proposed project will improve pedestrian safety and amenity in this area, as well as increase the accessibility of public transport. This project is in response to community requests to address safety between King Street and Blue Gum Road and also follows the occurrence of traffic incidents at the intersection.
There is currently a bus stop in the most suitable location for the pedestrian crossing, which will need to be relocated as part of the project. Alternative locations for the eastbound school bus stop were comprehensively assessed and the planned bus stop location was chosen as the safest option, which will deliver the best overall outcome for the community.
Feedback is now being reviewed and a report will be prepared for Council.
