Barrington MallWhy we're doing this

  • Vehicles obstruct the footpath while waiting for a suitable gap in the traffic to exit the mall
  • Right turning traffic both entering and exiting the Mall are often delayed leading to rushed decisions without paying attention to pedestrians
  • Pedestrians feeling unsafe crossing at this location.

Proposed changes

  • Extend the ‘no stopping’ restrictions (on street parking), on the west side of Barrington Street, between Athelstan Street and Kinver Place.
  • Install a patterned footpath across the access to Barrington Mall on Barrington Street to highlight a pedestrian route
  • Install a wider footpath in front of the Library with new landscaping
  • No right turn out of Barrington Mall into Barrington Street
  • Extend the pedestrian refuge on Barrington Street outside the Mall entrance (please see plan for further details)
