Background

Council is considering implementing several new turning restrictions for vehicles at the signalised intersection of Beaconsfield Street and Queen Street, Revesby. The objective of this investigation is to improve traffic flow and overall safety at the intersection for all users.

Also for consideration are details of an earlier study commissioned by Council to consider the introduction of right hand turning bays and signalised turning arrows on Queen Street. The study identified these changes would not provide improvement to the operation of the intersection. View the report here.

This proposal

Council is considering the following changes at the Beaconsfield St / Queen Street, Revesby intersection and is now seeking feedback and comments from the community. The changes, as shown on Plan No. TC 0879, include:

  • Not allowing right turns for all vehicles on Queen Street northbound into Beaconsfield Street eastbound
  • Maintaining the No Right Turn ban on Beaconsfield Street eastbound but upgrading it to not allow buses to turn right
  • Banning heavy vehicles from turning left from three approaches to the intersection.
  • Also included for consideration is the alternative traffic route for drivers who travel north on Queen Street and wish to turn right at Queen Street – see Plan No TC 0878.

    We welcome your feedback and will be accepting submissions up until 5pm, Wednesday 10 June 2020.

    Thank you to all those who have provided their feedback. Submissions are now closed and under review with Council

    If you have any questions or would like to discuss this proposal please contact Council’s Traffic Engineer Necla Aydogdu on 9707 9545 or Council's Community Engagement Team, on 9707 9602.
