Waratah Avenue Place-Making Strategy

What do you think is best for the Waratah Avenue village precinct? Have you heard about the proposal to improve pedestrian accessibility and amenity? Whether you work, visit or live in the area, own a property or run a business, we want to hear from you.

Stemming from the Waratah Place-Making Strategy, developed in partnership with the community in 2015, work has since progressed on a concept design for hard surfaces in the area. This body of work identified the need for a wider footpath suitable for cafe alfresco areas and improved accessibility for pedestrians in the street and in crossing Waratah Avenue.

The City is now seeking your feedback on this draft concept design.

Stage one of the project is designed to improve pedestrian access to the shopping strip and village while, at the same time, slowing vehicle speeds to improve pedestrian safety.

Taking in the section of Waratah Avenue between Adelma and Alexander Roads, the design incorporates improved pedestrian access and street amenity as follows:

  • A wide footpath for pedestrian access and cafe alfresco areas.
  • Narrowing the road to 6 metres and changing its alignment.
  • Parking modifications (parallel and angled).
  • Improved driveway access.
  • Modify access to Genesta Crescent.
  • A raised plateau for pedestrian crossing.
  • Increased street tree plantings, new planter boxes and bollards to delineate vehicle and pedestrian spaces.
  • Retention of bus zone and shelter.
  • Modifying the traffic island and children’s crossing at Adelma Road.
  • New roundabout at Alexander Road.
  • Relocation of street lights.
