Council and Transport for NSW have identified the need to improve pedestrian safety in Mudgee’s CBD and are proposing to introduce of a 40km/h High Pedestrian Activity Area (HPAA) as part of a strategy to reduce the number and severity of crashes involving pedestrians.

A speed reduction is proposed in the following locations (as per the map above):

  • Market Street (from Lewis Street to the Post Office)
  • Mortimer Street (from the St Matthews school zone to Perry Street)
  • Church Street (from Short Street to Clarke Street - entry to carpark behind the Kmart building)

Council and Transport for NSW have identified the need to improve pedestrian safety in Mudgee’s CBD and are proposing to introduce of a 40km/h High Pedestrian Activity Area (HPAA) as part of a strategy to reduce the number and severity of crashes involving pedestrians.

A speed reduction is proposed in the following locations (as per the map above):

  • Mortimer Street (from the St Matthews school zone to Perry Street)
  • Church Street (from Short Street to Clarke Street - entry to carpark behind the Kmart building)
  • Perry Street (from Market Street to Short Street)

Speed regularity signs and road pavement markings will be installed at the entrance and exit of the HPAA zone on all approaches. Line marking of angled car park spaces will also be installed onto the previously unmarked sections of Market Street and Mortimer Street to aid parking behaviours.

The new speed zones are expected to be installed in June 2021.

Managing speed is a key component in managing pedestrian safety. It also enhances the liveability, amenity and economic success of communities. Introducing a 40 km/h HPAA will improve mobility within the CBD, encourage walking and cycling, and improve conditions for mobility-impaired groups.

Residents are invited to provide their feedback on the project below.
