Will this project impact traffic flow on Wright Court and Field Street?
Making the street safer for pedestrians and slowing vehicle speeds was one of the key themes of the feedback we received.
The intent is for vehicles to be slowed by the new raised intersection treatment at the corner of
Wright Court and Field Street, which will allow for the existing speed humps to be removed.
The new street trees in both Wright Court and Field Street will also help to slow vehicles.
General traffic flow is not proposed to change as part of this project (i.e. the current 2-way
configurations will be maintained).
There will be some temporary impacts to traffic during construction. We will be in contact with
more detail closer to the date of works.
Will there be loss of car parking?
No. There is no overall loss to the existing number of car parks or loading zones on these streets.
We have undertaken an audit of the current on-street parking configuration in Wright Court and Field Street with the view to consolidate and update the parking controls and their location. Some on-street parking in the area has not been updated in 30+ years and we believe that on-street loading andshort-term parking is critical to businesses trading in the precinct.
The proposed on-street parking plan is designed to provide sufficient loading facilities, short-term
parking, and introduces motorcycle parking to the area.
What type of trees are being planted?
We are proposing to plant medium sized ornamental trees (e.g. Ornamental Pear).
The trees will be between 1-2m tall at the time they are planted.
The final tree species to be planted will be selected in the coming months, in accordance with the
requirements of service authorities.
How does this project relate to Council’s Strategic Plan?
New trees align to Council’s objective to increase greening in the city.
Making the street safer for pedestrians directly relates to Council’s objective to encourage people visiting
the city for shopping, leisure and entertainment.
