Pedestrian refuge for Stephen Terrace, St Peters
1 June 2017
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) will be improving pedestrian safety and accessibility by installing a pedestrian refuge on Stephen Terrace, near Seventh Avenue, St Peters.
The project includes the installation of access ramps and handrails, reducing the length of the sheltered right turn lane at Seventh Avenue, extension of the no standing zone on the southern side of Stephen Terrace, upgrading lighting, pavement marking and removing one non-native tree.
The pedestrian refuge will improve safety and accessibility by providing a staging area to assist pedestrians to cross the road.
The works are scheduled to commence on Monday, 5 June 2017 and be undertaken between 9am and 4pm, Monday to Friday, with expected completion by the end of July 2017, weather permitting.
Stephen Terrace and Seventh Avenue 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 on site conditions.
DPTI will make every effort to minimise impacts to the local community and road users during construction, as well as ensuring that access to properties and businesses will be maintained throughout the works.
This $100 000 project is funded by the Australian Government’s Black Spot Programme.

DPTI thanks motorists for their patience while these important safety works are carried out
