What's happening

Council is writing to you about a proposal to improve pedestrian safety in Arcadia Road, Galston. Council wants to get the balance right and would like your feedback.

Council is proposing to install a full-time marked pedestrian crossing at the existing “Pedestrian Refuge” in Arcadia Road. This upgrade will improve driver’s awareness of the crossing and improve safety of pedestrians. It is also proposed to relocate the bus stop closer to the new crossing. This is to improve access for school children attending Galston Public School.

Key features of the proposal are:

  • Installation of painted ‘Zebra’ marked crossing lines and pedestrian crossing signs.
  • Relocation of the existing bus stop in Arcadia Road from No 28 to No 21 Arcadia Road.
  • Construction of path from the new bus stop to connect with the new marked pedestrian crossing.

Council invites your comments on the proposal by close of business Friday, 23 February 2024.

If you wish to provide comments on the proposal, please title your submission “Proposed Pedestrian Crossing and Relocation of Bus Stop - Arcadia Road, Galston - Reference No F2014/00129”.

The results of the consultation will be referred to the Hornsby Local Traffic Committee for consideration and recommendation to Council.
