About the project

Council has identified the need to improve safety and capacity for cyclists and pedestrians at the existing Land Street underpass, which links the Bicentennial Bikeway to the Western Freeway Bikeway (via Sylvan Road) at Auchenflower.

The Land Street underpass duplication project involves constructing a new underpass beneath Coronation Drive at Auchenflower, to enhance safety and capacity by separating cyclists and pedestrians.

The project is being undertaken as the current underpass is not wide enough to accommodate future growth expected at this location, increasing the risk of pedestrian and cyclist conflicts. The new underpass will improve safety by separating pedestrians and cyclists, minimising the risk of conflicts and injury, and enhancing capacity to meet future demand.

The preliminary design includes:

  • constructing a cyclist-only underpass to the north of the existing Land Street underpass
  • converting the existing underpass into a pedestrian only thoroughfare
  • incorporating urban design in the project
  • lighting and landscaping works
  • reconfiguring Bicentennial Bikeway line markings to accommodate new traffic flow.

The community was invited to provide feedback on the preliminary design in December 2017 through online survey, phone, email and community information sessions.

Council is now progressing the detailed design based on the feedback received and will keep the community informed as the project progresses.
