I completely agree with Emilie C ... that intersection is an accident waiting to happen. Our children cross there regularly to go to school and to use the hall on the corner. I have lost count of how many times we’ve witnessed cars have speeding down Clovelly road from the south or crossing straight into Gilderthorpe. Can you please address ASAP ?! Thank you

The intersection at Market St / Clovelly Rd / Gilderthorpe St needs to be addressed. Cars fly up Clovelly Rd and veer left into Gilderthorpe, taking the corner at high speeds. The is always confusion amongst drivers turning right from Market St and Gilderthorpe St into Clovelly Rd - as a nearby resident I've witnessed dozens of accidents and near misses. I agree it is an accident waiting to happen - with the amount of children crossing at this section of Clovelly Rd to access St Margaret Mary's school, the Randwick Literary Institute, walk to Randwick Public School or to simply access Queens Park, something needs to be done. A roundabout or a crossing is required.

This is such a huge improvement. I love the pocket parks! Though I'd love to see the cycle way go all the way down Clovelly Road (no point having bike racks all over the place if it isn't safe to cycle)

I love that there are pedestrian crossings proposed on all streets at the main intersections (eg Clovelly Rd and Arden St). It has always struck me as totally illogical to have only one pedestrian crossing at each intersection. This should make life much safer for pedestrians (and their dogs!)

The drawing makes it look like the parking spaces will be reduced by the beach. I think it would be a huge detriment to reduce parking spaces given the high demand in the area and how important this beach is for families, so please don't do that, you will be doing the community a great disservice.The traffic calming measures down to 30km/h or 40km/h is not necessary and look like revenue raising initiatives. The roads are mostly congested and I see nothing wrong if someone drives at 45km/h when it is free. The pedestrian crossings will serve as natural traffic calming measures and at least they will have a purpose as well. No need for speed bumps or 30km/h speed limits.The idea of introducing more informal seating around the beach is a good one. Perhaps make sure it is shaded?

Very concerned regarding the congestion at the intersection of Fern Street and Clovelly Road. Traffic does not flow easily at this intersection, particularly with a pedestrian crossing that is not appropriately placed. Cars entering this intersection from Mount Street (or Fern Street), currently find it extremely difficult to cross Clovelly Road and cars travelling along Clovelly Road travel too quickly. Perhaps a well placed roundabout would slow the traffic speed and permit the entry of cars from Fern and Mount Streets.

The entrance to St Marks Rd should be closed permanently, not only at weekends, as drivers often don't look out for pedestrians here.

The bus stop in Fern St near Clovelly Rd for 353 towards BJ should be combined with the 339 stop just before Fern St. so passengers can take either bus if they are going to the northern part of the city

If there is ONE thing the Council can do to improve visual aesthetics of Clovelly Road its UNDERGROUND THE POWERLINES. Spend all the money you want on other things but the road will still look ugly until you clear the spaghetti overhead.

It's great to have more of a focus on pedestrians but there's not enough to discourage car use, which is a shame as the most unpleasant aspect of that walk is all the traffic. Replacing the car parking with proper cycling infrastructure would encourage cycling to Clovelly and reduce traffic. Even with traffic calming most people would not want to cycle on that road, running the gaunlet between traffic trying to pass and getting doored.Love the additional trees and reclamation of some road area for pedestrian use.

1. Please consider flowering trees such as the native Illawarra Flame Tree (Brachychiton acerifolius) in the streetscape, to add colour and interest in front of existing dreadful concrete buildings. 2. Please consider more parking (even 15 min limited) for our older residents, who may need to collect prescriptions, a bottle of milk etc. Your plan seems to reduce public parking spaces, even though new developments are providing very limited parking in buildings. This forces people to park on the street!3. We have witnessed many near misses at the busy traffic lights on the corner of Clovelly Rd and Avoca Street, particularly when people are turning right from Clovelly Rd into Avoca Street in front of the school. The cars shoot across, and don't seem to be looking for pedestrians when they turn. We have started waving our arms wildly about, to attract their attention!

Great to see improved safety and accessibility for people who walk and cycle. Reducing vehicle speeds will make Clovelly road a more relaxing place to spend time with friends and family.

Comments about cycleways not impacting car traffic lanes apply to kerb build outs for planting and tree upgrades as well. We don't want nasty traffic jams to build up.

Do the reconfigured parking spaces at Clovelly Beach provide more or less parking? It is difficult to tell from the diagrams.

The slip lane at the corner of Clovelly and Carrington provides smoother traffic flow. Closing that lane will cause traffic heading North on Clovelly to bank up, which will, in turn, impact traffic turning right from Clovelly to Carrington, which is used a lot anyway, with traffic banking up as-is. That traffic can bank up as far as Bunnings today.

Do we really need to spend ratepayer taxes on identity arches?

Cycleways should not reduce multiple car traffic lanes, particularly at the corner of Frenchmans Rd and Clovelly Rd, where traffic is turning from Clovelly to Frenchmans.

How much work really needs to be done apart from improved crossings? Give the extra cash to (overseas?) projects that can make a real difference in people's lives.
