Yea Streetscape Safety Upgrade
The Yea Streetscape Safety Upgrade Project aims to improve the safety of pedestrians crossing the road and vehicles reversing out of the angle parking in High Street, Yea.
Council is investing $170,900 in the Project and the Victorian Government’s ‘Fixing Country Roads’ Program is providing an additional $341,800.
The concept design proposes:
- Making both directions of traffic one lane rather than two
- Constructing a number of new kerbs, on both sides of the street, to reduce the distance pedestrians have to cover between the footpath and the median strip (middle section of the road). These kerbs will also function as a barrier between traffic and the angle parking, protecting those reversing out
- Changing the most troublesome sections of parallel parking to angled parking
- Providing better direction for long vehicles about the best places for them to park
Works are expected to begin on this Project in early 2020 following community consultation on the concept design.
