Are you planning blocking off Waratah Street at Belmore Road? Diverting cars to Botany Street to exit via Botany Street is a a bad move. You cannot see traffic coming and there will be accidents. How do we protest this plan.
A draft concept plan is
currently being compiled for a small public plaza at the junction of Waratah
Avenue and Belmore Rd. The design will go through a community consultation
process and public exhibition, and you are encouraged to provide your feedback to Council at this time.
The timing of this process is
still yet to be defined. Council is waiting for the light rail works to
conclude on High St, for traffic flow in the immediate area (including Botany
St) to return to normal, and for funds to be available.
Council will be looking to close
off a small part of the street from cars by creating kerbs along Belmore Rd and
adjacent to Arthur Lane. This will be the pedestrianised public space. Access
to Arthur Lane will still be available from the western side of Waratah Avenue
or Silver St. The actual space we are creating is quite small.
The rationale behind the
creation of this public space is to provide open space amenity to visitors to
Belmore Rd, which is currently lacking. The High St light rail terminus, will
also bring more visitors to Randwick Junction.
When is the footpath on corner brook and Carr streets coogee going to be fixed ie grassed or concreted. It is very uneven and dangerous especially as it is on a slope. Has been reported but to date time has passed and nothing done about it. Please fix as a priority thanks
Thanks for your question. Council engineers have visited the site and assessed the ashpalt footpath it as being in
satisfactory condition with only minor defects.
Council does have a plan to
progressively replace asphalt footpaths with concrete, but we have to prioritise and repair the worst footpaths when funding is available.
continue to monitor the condition of this footpath.
Could you please tell me what the planned roadworks are for Koorinda Avenue
The section of Koorinda Avenue
between Cottenham Avenue and Mooramie Avenue is characterised by a steeply
defined road camber, which is consistent with the road making standards at the time the roads were built in this area. (Note: a road camber the slope provided to the road surface in the transverse direction to drain off the rainwater from the road surface)
The steepness leading to gutter significantly impacts vehicular access to adjacent
properties. The works proposed in the 2018/19 Capital Works Program aims
to alleviate the issues experienced by residents accessing
I'd like to know the extent of the planned works in the 2019 budget for Prince Lane in Randwick. Will the road just be re-surfaced or will works to repair and improve guttering also occur?
There are many lots in this lane that have no gutter or kerb.
Thanks for your question. The works proposed for Prince
Lane include constructing the missing sections of kerb and gutter and asphalt resurfacing of the road.
Many years ago the Council planned to pave the footpath on Coogee Bay Rd between Brook St and the beach. This plan has never been realised. The main promenade to our beautiful waterfront should be attractive and elegant. Instead it looks decrepit, ugly and neglected. Is there any hope that this down-at-heel path will be upgraded
Council has been working through
a comprehensive design for the refurbishment of Coogee Bay Rd and parts of
Arden St, including finalisation of approvals with State authorities. The
design documentation will be going out to tender in early June to engage a
Council will be providing
information in the near future on the design, including the layout, materials
and surface finishes. Further communication will follow after about scheduling
of the works once a contractor has been formerly engaged.
Hi are there any plans to improve the boat launching facilities at the end of fishermans rd malabar. I believe that if the boat launching facilities were improved,surf life saving and air sea rescueboats would also benefit in poor weather conditions. If you would like to discuss,I may be also contacted on 93142004.
kind regards Sam Caltabiano
A design feasibility was completed for Malabar Boat Ramp in 2016/17. The design was funded and administered by Roads
and Maritime Services on behalf of Transport for NSW, under the NSW Boating Now
Program. In August last year, Randwick City Council then applied to the NSW
Boating Now Program for funding for construction of the Malabar Boat Ramp. The
application was based on the design which was developed in 2016/17 with
consideration of site constraints and opportunities, and input from the
Unfortunately Council was
unsuccessful in acquiring these grant funds in a process that was very
competitive with other applicants throughout the State.
Council won’t be considering
the allocation of any capital works funding in the near future for the upgrade
of this boat ramp, with a number of other significant open spaces and/or assets
requiring attention or refurbishment.
However, as a result of an external Risk Assessment report
of the boat ramp site (which was developed with input from key stakeholders,
such as RMS Boating Safety Officers), Council has recently installed new warning signs at the top of the boat
ramp to outline potential dangers on the ramp, or at the water exit/entry
point, as well as a Geotechnical monitoring plan for the embankment adjacent to
How do I make a suggestion to the council?
I'd like to suggest an outdoor fitness park in Coogee, similar to the ones found in Clovelly, Tamarama and Bondi Beach
Good afternoon, In relation to the '3km new and upgraded footpaths' for Malabar, can you please advise exactly where they are.
You can see a list of proposed roads and footpaths for upgrade in the Malabar area on this Fact Sheet. Please feel free to contact me if you wish to find out more specific details. Kind regards Josh Hay Manager Communication. 90936820
Randwick municipality is in desperate need of dedicated bike paths, as opposed to lines painted on the road that confine bikes to the area in which car doors swing open. Why doesn't the Operational Plan and Budget include bike paths running from north to south and east to west of the municipality? This would encourage bike use and help with traffic congestion, pollution and the general health of people living in the municipality.
It does! Included in the Budget is a proposal to build a significant separated cycleway as part of a streetscape upgrade connecting Kingsford with Centennial Park. More information is available on Council's website and a public exhibition of the design concept will commence shortly on our YourSay Randwick website.
What about small ticket items like ...
Fixing up bus shelters, especially those without a roof?
Clearing of drain holes which are covered with leaves and then get blocked when there is a downpour.
Thank you for your feedback. These matters are largely operational and can be responded to using existing resources and staffing. Can you please provide us with more details of the streets and bus shelters via email to email@example.com and this can be investigated.
I live at Maroubra Junction. I voted in favour of paying higher rates because the Council promised, among other things, the phased removal of unsightly overhead telegraph poles and wires, which are a particular bugbear of mine. Now I read to my dismay that there is no reference in the Budget and Operational Plan to the removal of overhead telegraph poles and wires. Have I been hoodwinked?
Removal of overhead powerlines is included in the Budget and funds have been allocated to start this project in The Spot, Randwick. Work is also planned to underground powerlines along the light rail line on Anzac Parade in association with the light rail works. Also funds have been allocated to underground powerlines on Coogee Bay Road as part of a streetscape upgrade. Due to the significant cost of undergrounding powerlines, it will be an ongoing program for Council to progressively remove overhead powerlines.
why is the increase over 5% when while campaigning against a council merger we were repeatedly told how fiscally responsible randwick council is?
The rate increase is to fast-track construction of a number of significant projects as outlined in the Our Community Our Future project. This includes:
- Anti-terrorism measures to make public places safer as required by the Federal Government
- Upgrade to the La Perouse Museum
- Addressing domestic violence through innovative strategies to provide more housing options for those exiting domestic violence and provide dedicated outreach workers
- Undergrounding powerlines to increase street tree planting opportunities
- Providing an arts and cultural centre
- Upgrading the Randwick Literary Institute
- Building a new indoor sports centre and gymnastics centre at Heffron Park, Maroubra
- Implementing Council’s digital strategy
- Various park, community building and public toilet upgrades

Can you give more details on the location of the new fencing & synthetic grass proposed for Snape Park ?
This project relates to upgrading the synthetic turf cricket practice pitches and associated nets. I believe this was not correctly explained in some of the documents. Apologies.
Could yo please advise me of where I can find information on the "creation of a new public plaza in Waratah Avenue". Particularly the address of the new proposed plaza and any relevant plans.
We are currently developing concept plans for the creation of this proposed plaza. These will be publicly exhibited and consulted with local residents and property owners.
