About the project
In early 2019, we engaged with the Berhampore community on what aspects of village upgrade are most important to them. The consultation identified that traffic safety improvements were a priority for the community.
To improve traffic safety in this area, the following changes are proposed:
- Raise the existing pedestrian crossing outside of Berhampore School
Install three speed cushions
- Paint a white edge line down Chilka Street to encourage motorists to slow down
Install ‘slow zone’ signs
Reinstate the raised crossing platform at the intersection to Adelaide Road
- Paint yellow cross-hatching at the intersection of Palm Grove and Adelaide Road to create a ‘keep clear’ area for turning traffic to merge into the lane.
The construction phase of this project has experienced delays due to bad weather. We expect all work to be completed by January 2021.
We are currently consulting with residents on Britomart Street on the placement of the three speed humps.
The construction phase is planned to begin in November and to be completed by late December.
