The disappearance of the slip road to Carrington Rd is a great idea. The slip road is dangerous and unsightly and a park will open that area as a pedestrian precinct. The park there now is lovely since the Council have been looking after it. To enlarge it as a people space will be beneficial.Could we look at placing a red light camera on Carrington leading south across Clovelly as from time to time cars swerve east and knock out parked cars on Carrington south of the Clovelly cross.

Please we desperately need a safe crossing for pedestrians across Clovelly rd from Gilderthorpe, Market street intersection . Young children , school children , commuters, families etc cross there risking their lives to get to school, get to the bus stop, get to things at the literacy centre . Please please please it’s awful ,dangerous and confusing intersection .

The draft proposal blocks vehicular entry to the northern end of St. Marks Rd, but only on weekends.Vehicles entering St Marks Rd from both Clovelly Rd and Frenchmans Rd come from behind a pedestrian standing on the eastern side of St. Marks Rd wishing to cross in the direction of the Hotel. I have lived close to this intersection for nearly 20 years and many times have been surprised by a vehicle suddenly turning into St Marks Rd. These days many drivers dont indicate for left turns. Cars travelling west on Frenchmans Rd have to cross a stream of traffic heading east. They are often hurrying to clear this dangerous intersection so have little opportunity to look out for pedestrians. A part time closure is likely to increase the hazard, particularly for children, elderly or disabled pedestrians.These issues would all be solved by a permanent closure.

Looks like a reduction in parking spaces at the beach? If this is the case, please considered timed, but still free parking. Maybe 3 hours free, so the very large nippers community can still all park there on Sunday, and everyone can enjoy a swim during the busy summer months. Currently summer sees a lot of coastal walkers park at Clovelly but then spend the whole day at Bondi, leaving no room for anyone else to park and enjoy a swim. Time limits on parking would allow more of the community and visitors to be able to access some time at the beach.

To me the glaring omission is not installing a roundabout on the corner of Clovelly Rd/Gilderthorpe Ave and Markets St. Such a dangerous intersection if you are turning of of Gilderthorpe or Market St.So many children crossing there - going to or from school , Queens Park or the Literary Institute. Just an accident waiting to happen

Oh I thought I just did that too. The Removal of the Carrington Rd slipway plan is great and allows for pedestrian access, safety and beautification. There is still a problem with the traffic travelling along Carrington Road South when it crosses Clovelly Road. Cars still swerve to the left and knock out cars parked on the east side of Carrington Road and a simple solution would be to place a red light camera at the lights on Carrington Road.

The removal of the slip road to Carrington is a great plan opening up a small park and pedestrian precinct. There still remains the problem of cars travelling west along Carrington road and after crossing Clovelly knocking out a few cars parked on Carrington east side. A red light camera on the Carrington Rd lights would solve that one.

I thought I did that in the previous window! In brief, the Clovelly Rd/Keith St intersection is dangerous. Three bus stops at the intersection, can often involve up to four buses stopped to pick up or drop passengers. Two of those buses likely to be turning into or out of Keith St. Keith St is narrow. Pedestrians crossing roads to catch or leave buses. Vehicles coming and going in every direction. No room for a roundabout. Pedestrian crossings would mightily help people. Move the bus stop on the southern side of Clovelly Rd to the planned revised Burnie St intersection maybe beside the pocket park, remove the bus stop opposite Mundarrah St less than 100 metres away. Remove at least two car parking spaces on Clovelly Rd south of Keith St so drivers can see south more clearly. Allow the 360 to Bondi Junction to pick up in Clovelly Rd at the same stop as city buses and has a bus shelter

Clovelly Rd/Keith St is a dangerous intersection for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles. Keith St is narrow. There are three bus stops at the intersection - 339 westbound for city buses, 339 eastbound for the city and 360 Bondi Jct, and 360 picking up for Bondi Jct. The 360 buses have to turn in or out of Clovelly Rd at Keith St. Two buses eastbound can be dropping passengers in Clovelly Rd, one of them needing to turn into Keith St, a third bus picking up in Keith St, a fourth in Clovelly Rd. Pedestrians cross the roads to catch or leave buses. Vehicles come from all directions. The intersection can't be widened. No room for a roundabout. Suggestions - move the eastbound stop to west side of the planned Burnie St intersection, lose the previous eastbound stop, and let the 360 to Bondi Jct pick up in Clovelly Rd. Remove 2 car spaces south of Keith St for better vision for drivers.

I've been a critic of some of council's proposals in the past, but I am actually pleasantly surprised by this. Its a coherent plan that offers a lot of benefit to the local community, bringing more trees and community space and calming traffic.I think there is a missed opportunity to have a pull in bus space at the Carrington Road intersection where the new park is being created. The Arden Street crossing and Fern Street crossings are calmed (inconsistent on pages 11/40/32 as to whether its 30 or 40km/h).Contrary to other feedback, I think the Fern Street junction works best without a roundabout.Do hope there is actually space to create a separate cycle path in the spots proposed without impacting traffic flow too much. I'm a cyclist but acknowledge the need to balance the use of space.Good relocation of bus stops, and thoughtful reconfiguration of the frenchmans road junction too

The plan ignores the elephant in the room which is the prospect of a cruise ship terminal at Yarra Bay. Why does the plan not outline an alternate vision for Yarra Bay that the community can rally behind? If we do not have a sensible alternative to the terminal, how can we plausibly argue against it? The Council is failing the community by not providing leadership in opposing this development which will fundamentally alter the future for residents of Randwick and seriously diminish our quality of life.

More needs to be done about the Mount/Fern/Clovelly Road intersection. It is almost impossible to safely drive across Clovelly Road at this intersection and it is dangerous for pedestrians as cars speed through. Location of the pedestrian crossing is too close to the intersection. Council needs to consider either a roundabout or traffic lights. Intersection at Arden and Clovelly is extremely dangerous for pedestrians as cars try to negotiate the roundabout. Location of the pedestrian crossing is too close to the roundabout so pedestrians are at risk from cars speeding through to avoid oncoming traffic. Location of bus-stop near the intersection also affects visibility of cars/pedestrians adding to danger of crossing. Need to consider how to improve safety at these intersections. Whilst I like the idea of planting more trees this may also impact visibility around these intersections

Hi, my comment is about the Fern Street/Clovelly Road intersection. Whilst the new pedestrian crossing is a great improvement the lack of a roundabout means that, at certain times of the day, it is nearly impossible to get across Clovelly Road from either the Fern Street or the Mount Street direction. If we wish to go straight ahead from Mount Street across Clovelly Road we now find it easier to turn left instead and then right at Bishops Avenue. When coming from the Bondi Junction direction we also choose this route along Bishops Avenue, then turn left on Clovelly Road and right onto Mount Street. I imagine that we are not alone! We prefer to do this than try to dangerously speed across the junction putting other motorists and potentially pedestrians at risk.
