Shakespeare Street traffic calming

Consultation has concluded


Safe Active Streets are identified routes on quiet local streets where speeds have been reduced to 30km/hour to allow cars, bikes and pedestrians to share the street safely.


Shakespeare Street

The existing slow points on the Shakespeare Safe Active Street (from Green Street to Scarborough Beach Road) have been identified through a road safety audit as having poor visibility and are of a width that can allow vehicles to navigate too quickly and dangerously pass cyclists.

A recent study of the street found that driving speed was above our target of 30km/hour. The Department of Transport supports our stance that the existing slow points have not had the desired traffic calming effect.


What now?

The City proposes to raise the kerb height around the existing slow points to a semi mountable profile. The proposed raised kerbing will not increase the size of the slow points or narrow the road.

Pictured below is the existing slow points and an example of the proposed raised kerbing.
