Newington Retail Precinct Traffic Changes

High Pedestrian Activity Areas (HPAA)

In mid 2021, City of Parramatta Council consulted with the community regarding a proposal to install 40km/h High Pedestrian Activity Area and associated speed cushions in the Newington Retail Precinct.

The consultation responses were received and taken into consideration. The Parramatta Traffic Committee at its meeting held on 20 October 2021 considered a report on this matter. Council at its meeting held on 22 November 2021 considered the Committee’s recommendation and resolved:

  1. That the information related to the installation of a ‘40km/h High Pedestrian Activity Area (HPAA)’ restriction in the locations indicated in Figure 1 in Newington in 2020/21 be received and noted.
  2. That speed cushions be installed in the following locations as part of the installation of ‘40km/h High Pedestrian Activity Area’ restrictions:
    1. Avenue of Oceania between Newington Boulevard and Avenue of Europe (2 locations)
    2. Avenue of Europe near Avenue of Oceania (2 locations)
    3. Avenue of the Americas between Avenue of Asia and Fariola Street (3 locations)

The anticipated timeframe for the installation of the speed cushions is March 2022.

The anticipated timeframe for the installation of 40km/h HPAA restriction is between April to June 2022. Speed limits are under the care and control of Transport for NSW (TfNSW). Accordingly, TfNSW will organise the installation of HPAA signs and pavement markings.

The community will be notified at least 2 weeks prior to the change of the speed limit restriction.
