Rouse St

Rouse St doesn't look like much at the moment.

Slowing traffic and getting some trees into the street are the main objectives of the works.
The trees to be planted are Eucalyptus Scoparia (White Gum).

Increasing the curb extensions will make it easier for people to cross Rouse St to the foreshore and back again.

In addition, the granitic sand surface allows stormwater to penetrate, rather than rush into the stormwater system and into the bay.

This is part of a wider plan to make the Rouse St a place for living rather than a major through road. Rouse St will change from its industrial look and feel to be more attractive and walkable.

I'll come back to this one in a month or so to see how its looking.
