Tamarama Marine Drive Safety Upgrades

We’re undertaking safety improvement works along Tamarama Marine Drive. This project is funded by the Federal Government via the Transport for NSW Road Safety Program.

Render of raised pedestrian crossing

The works will include:

  • Replacing the existing pedestrian island with a raised pedestrian crossing, as outlined in the Tamarama Park Plan of Management
  • Removing six light poles from the Gully-side of Tamarama Marine Drive and replacing them with energy-efficient, dimmable light poles on the footpath side of the road
  • Upgrading existing bus shelters to increase visibility and pedestrian access
  • Moving one bus shelter slightly further down Tamarama Marine Drive, towards Bronte, to increase accessibility and ensure safety of commuters when alighting or boarding buses. One parking space will be lost to accommodate the bus zone.
  • Widening parts of the footpath
  • New traffic and pedestrian signage

Community consultation was held from 23 March - 13 April 2022 and a summary of feedback received is available on Have Your Say.
