The intersection of Russell Terrace, Riddiford Street, Mansfield Street and Rhodes Street in Newtown.

This intersection services around 15,000 vehicles per day on average and serves several bus routes in and out through Newtown.

Since 2010, there have been four serious and four minor injuries and 11 non-injury crashes. Five injury crashes involved a motorcyclist and one injury crash involved a cyclist.

Future improvements will make it safer for pedestrians, cyclists, and other road users, and to provide better accessibility access.

Submissions

To understand the situation further, we are carrying out a survey and want to know if there have been any near misses and concerns that we are not aware of. 

The closing date will be extended to Friday 1 October 2021, due to the COVID-19 lockdown.
