Randwick set to benefit from road improvements, park preservation and Smartpoles

10 August 2016

As part of work on the CBD and South East Light Rail project, Transport for NSW will make a range of road and traffic improvements in Randwick –  and avoid tree removal in High Cross Park.

Transport for NSW and Randwick City Council are working together to minimise the impact of CBD and South East Light Rail construction and improve traffic and road conditions in the area, including:

  • Removal of the roundabout at Botany Street and Barker Street (on the border of Randwick and Kingsford) to make way for traffic signals;
  • Installation of traffic signals at the intersections of Arthur Street and Botany Street, and Arthur Street and Belmore Road.

Transport for NSW and Randwick City Council are also working together to install Smartpoles along Anzac Parade between Alison Road and the Nine-Ways intersection, making this part of town tidier and more visually appealing. The Smartpoles are multi-functioning power poles that allow lights, flags, signage, traffic signals and other accessories to be attached.

It has also been confirmed that the transformer required to help power the light rail network will be buried under a section of High Cross Park, rather than remain above ground as originally proposed.
