Background

We are proposing to upgrade the intersection of Godley Quay and Voelas Road, to provide a safe pedestrian access to these steps.We are also proposing to install new no stopping restrictions on Godley Quay to address the obstruction to pedestrians caused by illegally parked vehicles. These vehicles are also causing fuel tankers to cross the centre line to navigate the road.

Proposals 

Godley Quay/Voelas Road pedestrian improvements - Refer to plan A

  • Install a pedestrian refuge on Voelas Road at the Godley Quay intersection
  • Install a mountable extension to the footpath enabling pedestrians to look further up the road before crossing. For vehicles turning left, this will assist in reducing speed, and maintain access for larger and towing vehicles
  • Install no stopping lines on either side of Voelas Road near the new pedestrian refuge
  • Install a platform above the steps to enable a safe crossing point across Godley Quay
  • Install no stopping on Godley Quay between Voelas Road and Simeon Quay. On street parking will be available between 6 - 18 Godley Quay. 

Godley Quay parking restrictions - Refer to plan B

  • Install edge lines to define the road edge and no stopping lines along Godley Quay to Cyrus William Quay, on both sides of the road.
