Project Status: Under review
What we’re doing
We propose to make the intersection of York, Lang and Jamison streets, Sydney safer for people walking. The proposal includes restricting vehicles from turning left into Lang Street from York Street.
Proposed improvements for walking
The proposal is part of our George Street boulevard project and will provide more footpath space, wider crossings and kerb ramps at the intersection that will meet or exceed best practice standards.
The improvement works will enhance safety and accessibility for people walking while increasing the capacity of crossings to meet the needs of the high number of people who walk in the city centre.
Proposed traffic changes – left turn ban
To achieve the improvements and provide sufficient ramp width on the northeast corner of York and Lang streets, we propose to ban vehicles from turning left from York Street into Lang Street. Drivers currently travelling to Lang Street from York Street will instead travel on Grosvenor Street to turn right onto Lang Street.
The proposed left turn restriction will improve traffic flow at the intersection and provide more space for people walking.
Transport for NSW is the approving authority for all works at intersections controlled by traffic signals. We’ll consider all feedback and report the results in a traffic management plan to Transport for NSW for review and approval.
