Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

Safety issues only identified during the construction process of the Goodwood Junction project have been addressed by collaboration but no consultation.

It became clear during the latter stages of the various rail projects around what has become known as Goodwood Junction that there were going to be driver, bike, pedestrian safety issues for traffic using Victoria Street.

As a result and following a detailed risk assessment and receipt of local feedback, DPTI and Council’s Traffic Experts have implemented left turn in only from Victoria Street to Lyons Parade. This has been deemed the safest design solution for this junction.

Two way movements along the length of Lyons Parade have been maintained, however, all movements at the junction of Lyons Parade and Victoria Street are now prohibited, with the exception of Left Turn In, which is permitted.

West bound Victoria Street traffic from Goodwood Road can access Lyons Parade via Foster Street or Newman Street.
