Hall Street Improvements

Your opinion is important to us and will help inform the final design of this project.

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on our Have Your Say Survey which closed on the 13 September 2023. We are now collating the feedback results in a Consultation Report.

Project Description

For many years, the end of Hall Street at Old South Head Road has been closed off to traffic with bollards. The closure has taken the form of pebblecrete bollards installed in a continuation of the Old South Head Road kerb alignment.

To help improve pedestrian safety and beautify the streetscape, we want your feedback on a proposal to formalise the existing closure by constructing a cul de sac, continuous footpath and planting new trees to improve the overall amenity of the area. Proposed works will include:

  • Installation of a permanent cul de sac
  • Construction of a new footpath along the Old South Head Road kerb alignment
  • Planting of new turf and three additional trees
  • Introduction of four angled parking spaces with no net loss of parking


The existing intersection geometry of Hall St and Old South Head Road remains largely unchanged since the road closure via bollards was enacted.

The current intersection arrangement prevents passenger and larger vehicles from exiting or entering Hall St and Old South Head Road. There is a "No Entry sign on site but this does not physically prevent motorbikes and scooters from entering or exiting Hall Street.

The proposed formalisation of the road closure and construction of a separated footpath will not impact traffic flow but will physically prevent motorbikes and scooters from entering or exiting at the intersection, thereby improving pedestrian safety and movements within the area.

Pedestrians currently walking along the eastern side of Old South Head Rd need to walk along the asphalt road on Hall St to cross the intersection. The proposed construction of a continuous footpath will solve this issue, facilitating pedestrian safety and ease of movement, as well as contributing to greening and other improvements in the area.
