Brooklyn intersection safety and signal improvements

We are making safety improvements to the Ohiro Road/Cleveland Street/Todman Street intersection.

Ohiro Road/Cleveland Street/Todman Street intersection in Brooklyn.

About the project

This work is the result of conversations that we have had with the Brooklyn community and will increase safety in this area.

Work will start the week of Monday 10 October 2022 and will go through until December 2022.

This work includes:

  • installing a separate phase of the traffic lights for the right-turning vehicles from Ohiro Road into Todman Street and Ohiro Road into Cleveland Street, together with a left-hand turn from Todman Street
  • changing current angled parks to parallel parks outside 2 Todman Street to enable the left-turn movement into Ohiro Road
  • making changes to the current time restrictions and adding time restrictions to car parks around the intersection to better suit businesses needs
  • relocating the current bus stop on Ohiro Road (east side) approximately 15 metres north and replacing it with a no stopping restriction to provide better access for buses in and out of the bus stop
  • tidying up of kerbs, footpath, and tactile pavers on each corner of the intersection
  • widening the road on Ohiro Road (north side) resulting in the loss of one park on Ohiro Road to extend the broken yellow lines
  • upgrading of the traffic lights and signal equipment
  • resurfacing the area around the intersection.

Throughout construction, the roads through the intersection will be down to one lane at times. We will be using variable messaging signs and other signage around the area informing road users in advance of the works.

Fulton Hogan will be carrying out these works.

Night works - December 2022

From Sunday 4 December to Friday 16 December, there will be some night works that will involve digging out and preparing the area for a new kerb and channel. Work will be between 7pm to 5am. 

To do this work, the site needs be clear of vehicles and other obstructions so parking will be affected. There will be traffic management on site, but access to residents and business owners property will not be affected. Rubbish collection will continue as normal. 

The team will keep noise disruption to a minimum and will complete the noisiest work earlier in the evening. 

Background

We consulted with the Brooklyn community in June 2021 and the Traffic Resolution was approved at the Regulatory Processes Committee in August 2021.
