Let's make walking easier

Fast-track infrastructure for walking

To ensure the safety of pedestrians, including easier access and movement throughout Macquarie Park, several improvements have been identified in two key studies, the Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (2013) and the Macquarie Park Baseline Movement Economy Report (2009).

In the comments field below, tell us which of these actions should be fast-tracked to ensure it is safe to walk around Macquarie Park as rapid growth occurs:

  • prioritise pedestrian, cyclist and public transport operations by establishing a modal hierarchy in the new Ryde Integrated Transport and Land Use Strategy
  • reduce speed limits as Macquarie Park streets exceed the default urban speed limit. Remove old 60 km/h speed limit signs and install 50 km/h signs
  • conduct a Local Area Traffic Management program to reduce speeds at high pedestrian activity areas, major bus stops and train stations
  • prioritise, fund and implement recommendations for action from the Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (2013)
  • plan, prioritise, fund and install safe crossings for pedestrians on busy road corridors particularly adjacentto major bus stops and train stations with Lane Cove Road a priority
  • fast-track the implementation of key signalised road crossings in Macquarie Park
  • investigate alternate systems and financing options to rapidly construct additional safe pedestrian links identified in the Macquarie Park Baseline Movement Economy Report (2009) to accelerate a safe local walking network in Macquarie Park
