Street Intersection Upgrades - Lindfield
Two new signalised intersections are proposed in Lindfield in accordance with the Lindfield Traffic Management Plan adopted by Council at the Ordinary Meeting of Council held on 26 April 2022. One signalised intersection is proposed at Lindfield Avenue and Tryon Road, which will be delivered as part of the Lindfield Avenue Streetscape Improvement Works. The other is Strickland Avenue and Pacific Highway. These new intersections will assist with the movement of traffic in and out of the Lindfield local centre as well as provide safer crossing points for pedestrian movement.
The design of the signalised intersections is progressing and are partly funded by Section 7.11 Contributions. In line with the adopted Lindfield Traffic Management Plan, the signalised intersection at Balfour Street and Pacific Highway will be upgraded. The design works are also progressing and are partly funded by Section 7.11 Contributions.
