Bayside Council is working to improve traffic flow and safety for road users, pedestrians and cyclists in Wolli Creek. In November 2018, Council presented residents with two different options for a one-way system. Over 50% supported the option to make Arncliffe Street, Guess Avenue, Mt Olympus Boulevarde and Magdalene Terrace a one-way circuit.
Bayside Council has now engaged Sydney Civil to implement the chosen one way circuit and other improvements. These will include increased street lighting, widening and beautification of footpaths and roads, extra pedestrian crossings, adding a bicycle lane and addressing storm water issues to fix localized flooding.
Work is scheduled to commence early in the New Year. It will start with the permanent introduction of the one-way circuit. This will support traffic flow when work begins on the stormwater upgrades and other improvements.
The details of the work to be undertaken are as follows:
Location: Arncliffe Street, Willis Street, Guess Street, Mount Olympus Boulevarde and Magdalene Terrace.
Duration: Approximately one year (weather permitting)
Commencement: Mid/Late-January 2020
One way: to be set up from 28 January 2020 (to remain permanently)
Traffic control will be available on site for the duration of works to assist pedestrians, cyclists, and business and car users. Please follow the directions of traffic controllers at all times.
Some construction activities can involve noise and vibration. Some of the main sources of noise during construction include excavators and trucks. Sydney Civil is committed to minimising the impact of our works on the surrounding community.
