About the project

Following investigations carried out in February 2020, works to signalise the pedestrian crossing on Sylvan Road, Toowong commenced in June 2020 and are now complete.

This project was undertaken to provide a greater level of crossing safety for school children and the local community.

Project details

Works at this pedestrian crossing involved:

  • removing the existing zebra crossing line marking
  • installing new traffic light signals
  • installing new kerb ramps
  • installing new kerb build-outs
  • installing new road line marking
  • turfing and landscaping.   

In order to complete these works, Council removed three on-road car spaces on Sylvan Road to increase safety and visibility for pedestrians using the new crossing. 

Council was also required to remove one street tree to facilitate the new crossing point. These vegetation impacts will be offset in accordance with Council policies and relevant legislative requirements.

We would like to thank local residents and businesses for their patience and understanding during these works.
