Project Type: Streetscape




The Oxford Street East scheme has been carefully designed to deliver an improved visitor experience for all through the following works:

  • A clutter free, well lit public realm;
  • Supporting economic development by "spreading the spend" - encouraging use of cross streets and nearby spaces;
  • Improved legibility and way finding;
  • Reduction in traffic accidents (all types), improved perception of safety and actual reductions in crime and ASB,
  • Additional parking and dedicated delivery bays,
  • More trees and seating in the ORB area,
  • A greatly enhanced ease of independent access for those with disabilities;
  • Possibly faster journey times for all users;
  • Reduced wear and tear of the highway and vehicles
