The re-instated road opening at Swallow/Ross/Byrne has several improved safety features compared to the one it replaces. The splitter island, shown here, keeps motorists from straying to the wrong side of the road. The road is narrow - creating a low speed environment and re-inforcing that this is a local access rather than a through route. A raised pavement will be installed to make it clear that pedestrians have priority at the crossing. Once the raised crossing has been installed, the temporary road opening will be closed. More trees will be planted including a feature jacaranda tree.
