Summerhill Drive transformation

We want to make Summerhill Drive safer for all road users.

Over the next few years we are going to be widening and connecting current cycleways, and adding ones where there aren’t any.

Part of this work will also include narrowing entrances to some streets to slow down motorists. In some locations we will also include indented bus bays and safe spots for pedestrians to wait in the middle of the road.

We’re breaking the project into sections as the type of work needed will be different in different sections.

The first part we want to improve is between Springdale Grove and Old West Road.

We’re currently designing options for what this might look like, and will then consult with road users and nearby properties.

This stretch is known to be dangerous, so our designs focus on improving safety for all road users.

Timeline

  • Consultation early 2020
  • Construction late summer-autumn 2020

This work will encourage more people to choose to walk, bike or catch a bus to get around town. This is a goal of our Active and Public Transport Plan.
