What we're doing

We propose installing three raised speed humps to slow traffic as they approach the roundabout from:

  • Wilsons Road South
  • Both approaches on Centaurus Road

We propose creating two new crossing points in the existing islands on:

  • Wilsons Road South
  • Centaurus Road east side

We are also:

  • Increasing the width of the existing crossing point on Centaurus Road west.
  • Putting in new pedestrian markings on the footpath on Albert Terrace corner by Mobil to highlight the pedestrian space, making it safer.
  • Removing one tree on Centaurus Road east to help with visibility when crossing the road. Two new trees will be planted in the area.
  • Installing a small speed hump outside the Mobil garage to slow cars as they exit.
  • Removing the disused ‘Kea’ Crossing on Wilsons Road South. The kerb buildouts will be kept.
