    Throughout the year, we’ve been working hard to improve the traffic flow, pedestrian access and the general amenity of the Greville, Porter and King Streets.

    To do this, we used some temporary road treatments to show you how this could look in the longer term. Since then, we’ve extended the temporary trial and made some tweaks to the road treatments so you can enjoy the additional space in the warmer months.

    We’re now asking for your feedback to help the new Council decide how to proceed to the next stage of this project on the future permanent improvements. The feedback...

    • Widening the road a little to allow better west bound traffic flow
    • Returning cars spaces between Grattan Street and Porter Street
    • Replacing cafe barriers and plastic kerbs with line marking to delineate parking bays
    • More signage and line marking at the Porter and Greville Street intersection

    Between Izett Street and Grattan Street

    • Rearrangement of the parking bays and dining areas to increase parking and create more useable dining spaces
    • Providing additional loading zone for business owners

    Between Izett Street and Chapel Street

    • Providing three additional car spaces on the Southern side of the road for evening use
    • Retaining existing layout of temporary dining spaces

    King Street between Chapel and Little Chapel

    • Rearrangement of furniture and lighting to encourage more people to use the space.
    • Provision of a loading zone at the east end of the street.

    The purpose of the proposed changes is to improve the pedestrian environment in Greville Street which has been made possible by introducing a one-way traffic movement. The one-way movement has also reduced traffic volumes and improved the safety of the intersection at Izett Street. The wider footpaths will create a safer environment and more space for the 4000 pedestrians that currently use Greville Street daily and makes allowance for the forecast densification of the area. It also provides an opportunity for traders to take advantage of the additional space for kerb side trading.

    Extension of street trade permit and liquor licences

    Local Laws have extended the 3-month permits. This extension should be enough for Liquor Licensing to consider and extend the licences for this period.

    Following the trial, there will be further opportunities to provide comments and feedback on the changes in order for council to decide on a way forward for permanent implementation.
