Rickard Avenue Street Improvements

Rickard Avenue is a quiet, residential street in Bondi Beach.  Until late 2019, it was open to two-way traffic.  In October 2019, temporary concrete barriers were installed to trial changes to traffic flow and in turn improve safety. We are now proposing a more permanent solution, which would include the construction of a cul-de-sac as well as greening of the local area.

The proposed improvements for Rickard Avenue include:

  • Putting in a permanent cul-de-sac to close through traffic while making it safer for local residents and cyclists merging onto Lamrock Avenue
  • Improving the community feel by increasing public green space, planting seven news trees and including additional seating
  • Installing a new raingarden with water sensitive urban design principles and improving flood management
  • Installing new sections of footpath with cyclist ramps.

To comment on our proposed design for Rickard Avenue, please submit your feedback between 7 March – 27 March 2022, through one of the following methods:

We expect construction work to start in May 2022 and for it to take four weeks to complete, weather permitting.
