Drummoyne Shared Spaces Pilot - 26 October - 31 December 2020

What is it about?

Council has received funding from the NSW Government as part of the Streets as Shared Spaces Fund to pilot two temporary road closures in Drummoyne.

The pilot, running initially from 26 October–31 December 2020, will see a small section Formosa Street at Lyons Road closed, and Church Street will become one-way from Formosa Street to flow on to Victoria Road only.

Project background

In 2018, we asked the community to help us shape the 2019 Victoria Road Urban Design Review priorities. During this consultation, the community communicated that there was not enough public space to gather safely in for events and outdoor dining. The community asserted that this would bring vitality and vibrancy to the commercial precinct.

Specifically, community members suggested two public space ideas that Council is now testing:

  • Consider closing Church St and making it a public park/plaza
  • Consider closing Formosa St from Lyons Road to Bowman and convert to a public plaza with outdoor dining.

What to expect during the pilot

By creating new public spaces, we will promote how they could come to life for the local community to enjoy. We hope that the pilot will demonstrate how shared piazza style spaces can add to the area’s vibrancy, providing new opportunities for community events, and stimulating outcomes for local business.

More information on traffic management, events and activations will be outlined here and via Council's media channels.
