New Pedestrian Refuge for Queen St Williamstown
19 April 2016
Safety for pedestrians on Queen Street, just north of the junction with George Street, will soon be improved with works on the installation of a new pedestrian refuge commencing Wednesday, 20 April 2016.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) advises that works will include the installation of kerb ramps, handrails, pavement marking and tactile ground surface indicators.
The installation of a pedestrian refuge will improve safety by providing a staging area to assist pedestrians to cross the road.
DPTI will make every effort to minimise the impact on road users.
The work will be undertaken between 9.00 am and 4.00 pm with expected completion by the end of the week, weather permitting.
The road will remain open to traffic, with a 25 km/h speed restriction in place while workers are on site. Lane and other speed restrictions may apply subject to onsite conditions.
The $50 000 project is funded by the State Government’s Transport System Responsiveness Program.
DPTI thanks road users and pedestrians for their cooperation and patience while this important safety upgrade is undertaken.
