Council recently sought your feedback on the proposed Traffic Changes for Good and Bridge Streets as a part of the upgrades coming to the site. These upgrades were informed by various investigations and community consultation which will include the latest technologies to increase convenience, connectivity and safety, and update the look and feel of the streetscape.

Streetscape upgrade works in Good Street and Bridge Street, Granville which include the traffic facilities as detailed below:

  1. One-way (southbound) restriction and footpath widening in Good Street between Cowper Street and Bridge Street
  2. A new roundabout at the intersection of Good Street and Bridge Street.
  3. Replace the existing raised pedestrian crossing in Bridge Street with a combined pedestrian and cyclist raised crossing.
  4. A ‘Trucks Prohibited, Vehicles over 3 tonne GVM’ restriction in Good Street between Cowper Street and Bridge Street.
  5. A ‘No Left Turn vehicles under 9m Excepted’ restriction for westbound motorists in Cowper Street at Good Street.
  6. A ‘No Right Turn vehicles under 9m Excepted’ restriction for eastbound motorists in Cowper Street at Good Street.

Frequently asked questions

Some areas of existing on-street parking in Good and Bridge Streets does not meet current Australian Standards.

Parking availability in these streets will be slightly reduced in this proposal however parking opportunities are maximised in accordance with current Australian Standards.

We are converting Good Street between Cowper and Bridge Streets to 40km/hour one way south-bound with parking lanes either side and speed humps (carriage way 2.9m wide and parking lanes 2.8m wide) to facilitate a pedestrian friendly, activated street.

The road way will decrease to one way to facilitate the upgraded and extended pavement with 1.8m clear path and 3.7m wide furniture/activation zone (outdoor dining etc) to improve pedestrian safety, provide activation opportunities and mature tree planting.

  • We are removing the raised refuge islands (near the roundabout) along Cowper Street and replacing with line marking. Existing pedestrian refuges are subject to major vehicular overhang particularly from buses and trucks. They provide a false sense of security for pedestrians creating an unsafe crossing environment. Replacing these eliminates the false sense of security for pedestrians and safety issues regarding vehicular overhang.
  • Upgrading kerb ramps to improve access
  • New raised pedestrian crossing with priority cycleway crossing flush with pedestrian pavement to improve access across Bridge Street

The proposal provides a single 30m length bus zone on the northern side of Bridge Street between Good Street and Cowper Street for both the west and east-bound N60 late night bus service.
