New planted median strips on Morehead Street, Redfern

New planted median strips on Morehead Street, Redfern

Safer green streets

We will soon start work on the second stage of new planted median strips for Morehead Street near Phillip Street. The first stage was done from August to October 2018.

The median strips will improve the street by slowing traffic and providing new trees and shrubs. 

The work includes:

  • excavating the pavement and constructing concrete kerbs
  • adding new soil
  • planting Sydney red gum trees and new grasses and shrubs
  • new linemarking and signs.

The works will not impact on access to driveways and intersections. There will be no changes to parking once the work is complete.

The City's contractor, Sydney Civil will start work in mid-March. Construction will take place from 7.30am to 5.30pm on Monday to Friday and 7.30am to 3.30pm on Saturdays. The work is expected to take around 5 weeks to complete, weather permitting. 

We will take steps to minimise impacts to residents. However, there will be some machinery noise, dust, temporary lane reductions and traffic control.
