Project Status: Under review
Why we’re doing this
As part of our city north public domain plan, we’re proposing to upgrade Loftus Street, Reiby Place and Customs House Lane.
The proposal includes pedestrianising Loftus Street north of Reiby Place, paving Customs House Lane, and footpath extension works in Reiby Place.
The project aims to improve pedestrian safety, access and amenity, reduce through traffic, and maintain servicing and deliveries for surrounding businesses. The proposal will also provide opportunities for outdoor dining and events.
What we’re doing
Proposed changes include:
- timed closure of Loftus Street (north of Reiby Place) and Customs House Lane from 11am to 12pm (midnight) 7 days a week – outside of these hours, Loftus Street (north of Reiby Place) and Customs House Lane will be open as a 10km/h shared zone to provide access for servicing and deliveries
- introducing a continuous footpath treatment in Reiby Place at its intersections with Loftus Street and Pitt Street
- planting street trees within the proposed shared zone in Loftus Street.
The concept design and local access plan show the proposed traffic treatments at Loftus Street, Reiby Place and Customs House Lane.
