Stay updated on proposed works at the intersection of Hindley Street and Gray Street during May - June 2021

Project Update: 15 June 2021

The continuous footpath on the southern side of Hindley street has been installed and the garden bed constructed. New plants are expected in the coming weeks. Works will now move to the northern side to construct the second continuous footpath and associated kerb protuberances.

There are a few pit lids on both sides of the street that are awaiting service authority adjustments, however the project remains on track to be completed by the end of June (weather permitting). Please note that adverse weather conditions may push the completion date into July.

Project Information

As part of the Black Spot Improvement program, we have commenced works at the Hindley/Gray intersection to provide safer pedestrian access along Hindley Street across Gray St (see below):

CivilTech is the preferred contractor. CivilTech will be in contact with any resident or business directly impacted by the works.

The works include:

  • Improved lighting
  • New kerb build-outs.
  • A reduction of the speed limit to 30 km/h
  • Installation of buffer zones between the bicycle lane and car parking, and
  • Installation of a continuous pedestrian footpath on Gray Street with two raised pedestrian crossings, protuberances and landscaping

Please note:

  • The inclusion of a protuberance adjacent to 29-39 Hindley St will result in the loss of two car parks
  • The works are likely to occur between 7am and 5pm Monday-Friday with some weekend works expected. Further information will be provided regarding working hours as required
  • The works are likely to run to mid-July 2021 (weather permitting).
