    Tick checklist

    The preferred kerbside alignment was supported by 100% of respondents to the community engagement activities. In consideration of community comments during the consultation period, the final design for the footpath along Beatrice Road is proposed to be narrowed 1.5 metres and aligned with the back of the kerb. This was done in order to maintain the canopy of as many existing street trees as possible.

    The final design also involved some additional changes to the initially proposed concept design. The main changes proposed are:
