Rickard Avenue Street Improvements

Image of Rickard Avenue with temporary concrete barriers, installed late 2019.

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. In June 2020, Council endorsed the Waverley Traffic Committee's recommendation to make the changes permanent.

From 26 September, Council will commence works which 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 rain garden with water sensitive urban design principles and improving flood management
  • Installing new sections of footpath with cyclist ramps.

Works will take approximately seven weeks to complete, weather permitting.
