Consulting the Community

Draft proposal to alter the traffic flow in Suffolk Street to One Way from George Street towards Macquarie Street – Public Consultation Consultation was undertaken in early November 2009 in relation to the proposal to remove street parking on the south-eastern side of George Street, between Fitzgerald Street and Catherine Street, Windsor. The proposal to remove parking was in an attempt to reinstate bus services along George Street between Hawkesbury Valley Way and Fitzgerald Street.

Council at its meeting held on 10 November 2009 adopted the following resolution:

“The proposal to alter the traffic flow in Suffolk Street to one way from George Street towards Macquarie Street be supported in principle and appropriate procedures be commenced to achieve the change.”

To facilitate the proposal to alter the direction of traffic flow in Suffolk Street from two way to one way involves a number of actions including; public consultation, traffic study, compilation of a Traffic Management Plan, and approval from the RTA.

In considering changing Suffolk Street to one way traffic flow and taking into account the information provided above, the following options are available:

1. The traffic flow in Suffolk Street be converted from two way to one way from George Street towards Macquarie Street which will retain the bus service that commenced on 28 November 2009; buses travel along George Street from the Railway Station heading towards the town centre, turn right into Suffolk Street, left into Macquarie Street, left into Fitzgerald Street, right into The Terrace, right into Kable Street, right into Macquarie Street, right into Hawkesbury Valley Way, left into George Street and proceed to the station, or

2. The two way traffic flow in Suffolk Street remain, which may result in the buses not servicing George Street, between Hawkesbury Valley Way and Suffolk Street. Buses would travel from Windsor Station, into Macquarie Street, via George Street and Hawkesbury Valley Way, turning left from Macquarie Street into Fitzgerald Street, right into The Terrace, right into Kable Street, right into Macquarie Street and back towards Windsor Station.

The public is invited to comment on the proposed changes to traffic flow from two way to one way in Suffolk Street. If you have any comments or concerns that may assist with determining this matter, please forward them to Mr Christopher Amit, PO Box 146, Windsor NSW 2756, prior to Friday, 19 February 2010.
