Main Street Urban Design Strategy and Transport Plan

In 2017 the City commenced the Main Street Urban Design Study, which aimed to:

  • Examine urban design and place issues across the Main Street Study Area;
  • Develop a shared vision for Main Street with the local community, including principles and redevelopment objectives;
  • Develop design and Place Making options to guide built form, potential economic growth options, transport planning to improve Main Street and deliver the vision; and
  • Identify short term quick wins and longer term delivery strategies and initiatives.

As part of the Study, the City carried out a number of community engagements, including an online community survey, Vision Workshop, Design Workshop and Community Open Day.

The draft Main Street Urban Design Strategy is an output of this engagement, and provides a high level overview of the Study findings and recommendations. A Transport Plan has also been prepared as part of the Study, and assists with the implementation of the recommendations identified in the Study.

Some of the key recommendations of the Transport Plan, which will assist with achieving the vision of the draft Main Street Urban Design Strategy, include:

  • Introduction of a wider area 40km/hr speed zone via a staged approach;
  • Reconfiguration of on-street parking, embayed parking and bus stop embayments’ to ensure that the 40km/hr speed limit is maintained permanently by reducing parts of Main Street to one lane during off peak periods;
  • Reconfiguration of existing pedestrian crossing points and installation of two additional pedestrian signal crossings in the study area;
  • Improvements to cyclist connectivity through the development of a Safe Active Street (bicycle boulevard) along Waterloo Street with connections to Main Street;
  • Removal of the give-way left turn slip lane from the western side of the Hutton Street and Main Street intersection; and
  • Use of on-street traffic calming and management measures throughout the area, including their potential use at the Main Street intersection with Hutton and Royal Streets.
