Clovelly Road Masterplan

Draft Masterplan on public exhibition.

In March 2019 we consulted extensively with the community to assist in the preparation of a masterplan and streetscape concepts for Clovelly Road.

The community were invited to attend workshops or interact with us online by dropping a pin on our interactive map or sharing an idea on the ideas board. View a summary of the consultation outcomes or read the discussion paper.

The draft masterplan is now on exhibition and we are again seeking your feedback. The masterplan will guide the future vision for the precinct and improve the liveability and vitality of this much-loved area.

You can provide your feedback by:

  • Making an online comment
  • Lodging a formal submission
  • Sending your comments headed "Clovelly Road Draft Masterplan" to the General Manager by email council@randwick.nsw.gov.au

Love Pocket Parks / Trees MUST HAVE Review Cycle Lane need to have one all the wayMove Bus stops some are 5 metres apartReview Clovelly Rd / Arden St roundabout currently dangerous Add more zebra crossing to create more community and access Exciting project thank you!

Hi I really love the pocket parks - providing spots of interest and softening all the concrete - time to make Clovelly really beautiful - love the plan of adding greenery with trees, and traffic calming. I think a cycle lane is impt to provide a safe pathway to Centennial Park and also reviewing bus stops as they are dangerously close to junctions and also v close together - electric buses pls! The roundabout at Arden St is dangerous people do not stop and look just drive on regardless so maybe worth looking at that also.

I support the broad aims of the Masterplan. However, I am disappointed by the lack of safe facilities for people riding bicycles to get around. If Council sincerely wishes to 'increase uptake of active transport' safe, protected bike routes (i.e. separated from traffic) must be provided along major routes such as Clovelly Rd - which directly links Clovelly Beach/Clovelly with Centennial Pk and Queens Pk; and provides access via other regional routes with Moore Pk, Surry Hills, Redfern, Sydney Uni, Bondi Junction, and the Sydney CBD. It is a major link for recreational riders and commuters - including those riding to local schools or sports fields. Protected bike lanes are urgently needed. Clovelly Rd is also a major bus route and is not suitable for the Masterplan to embed shared traffic lanes if Council wants to make it safer for residents and visitors of all ages to ride bicycles.

Council has prioritised protected bike lanes on Clovelly Road, and this road is the best place to provide safe bicycle access through north Randwick to two major destinations. This draft master plan has a Vision of a street in which it is "easy for all to get around." The Design Principles list "promote additional modes of active transport" and "children to be able to walk and cycle to school." The connectivity designs in this Plan do not address these goals. There is a "cycle link" from Centennial Park to Frenchmans Road, but beyond this point, only fragments of "cycle link" are shown near Arden and Beach. In the Frenchmans Road Precinct Plan, the bike lane is a door-zone 2-way painted lane, which is very unsafe and very far from best practice. I support the Council vision for protected bike lanes the entire length of Clovelly Street, and ask that the Master Plan reflect this vision.

I support the proposal to make the entry to St Marks Road at the intersection with Clovelly Road and Frenchman's Road into a shared zone and possible closure on weekends. Some cars travel too fast when entering St Marks Road from Frenchman's Road endangering pedestrians particularly children when crossing St Marks Road.

The new pedestrian crossing at the intersection with Mount Street/Fern Street is a significant improvement, however the intersection is still a difficult place to get through, whether on foot, bicycle or car, particularly during peak times. Part of the problem is that it is on the brow of the hill, in the middle of the village, with many local shops and cafés clustered in close proximity. I would strongly support the introduction of a roundabout at this location, as well as the suggestion to install a cycle lane along Clovelly Road.

Please consider some traffic management system at the intersection of Clovelly Rd, Market St and Gilderthorpe to help the many children and parents who cross here daily. There is a school and a hall which houses many dance and community classes right there and two bus stops which means in addition to the three way intersection buses often impair vision. It’s very dangerous. Options include traffic lights, a zebra crossing or a roundabout.

I'd like to express my support in particular to for these two community requests:Add a roundabout at the intersection with Mount ST/Fern ST to make it more manageable to cross Clovelly RD during high-traffic periods (which seem to become more frequent and get longer).Build a dedicated cycle path along Clovelly RD to provide safety for cyclists to hopefully increase the uptake of climate-neutral transport and reduce car traffic at least somewhat.

I support the broad aims of the Clovelly Road Masterplan. However, There is very little provision in this plan for people riding bicycles. This is not aligned with the projects aims, which is to increase uptake of active transport.Clovelly Rd is currently a major bicycle link to the Sydney CBD, to Centennial Park, to Moore Park, to the Inner West, to Sydney University, to Bondi Junction, to Queens Park for anyone living in Clovelly, Coogee, Randwick, Bronte, South Coogee.It is a major link for recreational riders to local parks and beaches, and for bike riders of all ages including those riding to local schools.A fully separated cycleway is urgently needed along the entire length of Clovelly Road to make cycling safer and increase cycling in the sub region.

Why is Clovelly Rd clogged with traffic on weekends, after hours, not in peak times but all the time? Too many cars! Stop approving medium density and high density apartments in the area - the roads cant take it. And guess what, people are not giving up their cars and riding bikes. Also the idea that the "new boarding houses" for travellers and students will not bring cars into the area is ridiculous! Clovelly road is choking and us with it! There are days when I cant get out of Gilderthorpe Ave either end!

The intersection of Clovelly road and market street does not seem to be properly addressed . There are daily safety issues for mum’s and kids trying to safely cross this 3 street intersection . It’s also a blind corner .It has to be made safer for kids crossing and cars exiting Market and Gilderthorpe streets .Any proposed bicycle paths near this intersection should not be installed at the expense of resident parking spots on Clovelly Road . Many old houses onthat road have no parking and bike lanes will only worsen the parking situation

Owner of Pizzavelly Italian Kitchen it is great news of consideration of up grade Clovelly Road between Arden st and Beach st.My concerns is always been the bus stop, every time a bus pulls in it blocks the road and cause traffic problems, my suggestion is to move the bus stop past Beach st where you don't have any problems and you will have a much easy traffic flow with out cousin an traffic jam or even accidents.It's be great to see trees long the shops side, special where you have out door dinning and most of all the footpath needs to be fix even worst now after the dig to laid the new cable for the NBA. Thank you for all you consideration.

I agree with robi, do not put up identity arches and signs. Spend our money on what we really need.I would like tall trees planted on the nature strip on the south side of Clovelly Rd between the bus stop at Beach St and Flood St. There are no wires here and it will balance the plantings on the north side, making a lovely approach to the Beach St to Arden St improvements.Also I agree with surfsider about the junction of Clovelly Rd and Keith St. The 360 bus cannot make the turn into Keith St until Keith St drivers realize the bus needs room to turn. I strongly suggest putting a raised pedestrian crossing on Clovelly Rd, east of the intersection. This would dramatically improve the safety the beachgoers who love to walk along the greenery of Donnelon Cct by Clovelly Beach. It would reduce the number of pedestrians who might otherwise have to cross Keith St to get to the bus or coast.

I agree with Robi, omit identity arches and identity signs. The less signage the better. Spend the money on the other items we would like.I would like to see tall trees planted on the south side nature strip between Flood St and the Beach St bus stop. There are no overhead wires here. The planting would balance trees on the north side.I also agree with surfsider. It can be very difficult for 360 buses to make the left hand turn from Clovelly Rd north into Keith St, as cars continually back up on Keith St to turn onto Clovelly Rd. The buses cannot get around and drivers are not aware that the bus needs room. In addition I do not see plans for a new raised pedestrian crossing just east of that intersection. This location for a cross walk would significantly improve safety for bus passengers, and safety for pedestrians who go to Clovelly Beach through the lane and leafy Donellan Cct.

It's not clear how you cycle into Centennial Park.It would be great to include garbage bins. I live near the DOG and it seems people drop their late night snack wrappers in our yard and street. Some bins could help this.Also - bubblers and places to top up water bottles!Thank you - think it's looking good so far.

SAFE CYCLING INFRASTRUCTURE: Not much in the plan about this. There should be. How does someone ride safely from the Clovelly Beach to Centennial Park? Has Council nutted this out already? Maybe it has? If it hasn't, it should. This Clovelly Road plan should work in with an overall plan to build a safe cycling network in the whole Council area over the next 40 years. There should be safe passages to go from the beaches to & from key places like the city, Centennial Park, Bondi Junction, Randwick shops and UNSW. Clovelly Road is one piece of that puzzle.

OVERALL: Great work. So good to see a plan to make Clovelly Road greener, safer and more liveable and to improve each of the key shopping precincts. ARDEN ST PRECINCT: Very supportive of all aspects of the concept. Particularly the effort to make it safer and more pedestrian-friendly. Including the 40km zone, four crossings at Arden St intersection, road narrowing and raised threshold and trees at entry points.

ARDEN ST PRECINCT SUGGESTIONS: 1. More trees please! (a) Particularly the section of Clovelly Rd between Arden and Beach Streets on the South side. New trees planted on either the verge or the road. Also tidy up the scruffy plantings already there. (b) One more tree on the North (shop) side of this section. (c) One tree on Arden Street at the precinct entry point - outside Coogee Prime Lodge. (d) Footpath plantings (e.g. low ferns or grasses) on Arden Street outside 317 and 319 Clovelly Rd. 2. Suggest an in-lane bus stop outside Pizzavelly. Put in more plantings or a raingarden at this location. (Which will make it better for Gordons, Pizzavelly and Sweet Kiss.) Possibly even take out the bus stop here?
