Palm Beach – Thrower Drive pedestrian crossing upgrade

Commencing: January 2021
Completion: April 2021 (weather permitting)
Cost: $490,000

Project information

Works are underway to upgrade the zebra pedestrian crossing at Thrower Drive in Palm Beach.

This project is being funded by the Federal Government’s Black Spot Program.

Construction details

The upgrade includes:

  • installation of actuated signalised pedestrian crossing
  • new signage and line marking
  • kerb modifications for pedestrian crossings as required
  • resurfacing asphalt
  • installation of pedestrian fencing.

Residents and road users may notice temporary traffic delays, noise and dust at times. Temporary lane closures will be required, and there will be pedestrian and traffic management in place. Road and path access will always be maintained. Works will be staged and ensure that all traffic lanes are operational during peak hours to minimise inconvenience. Some night works are expected in order to complete the asphalt surfacing and line marking.

We encourage all road users to take extra care when City crews are in the area and observe traffic signs and speed restrictions.

We will do our best to minimise disruptions, and we thank you in advance for your patience.

Night works

Asphalt surfacing and line marking will be undertaken at night to reduce the impact on daytime traffic. Construction crews will wait for favourable weather conditions (no rain) to complete these works over three nights. We expect to be complete by end of April 2021.

Night works will cause changed traffic conditions between the hours of 7pm and 5am. Local residents have been notified by letter. Please contact the project manager with any questions on 07 5582 8449.
