Pedestrian Crossing, Broadbeach Mall
This project provides a crossing at the Old Burleigh Road and Victoria Avenue intersection, which improves crossing safety and efficiency for pedestrians, while allowing for an appropriate level of vehicular access. The crossing's location is a crucial centre point within the Broadbeach network, reinforcing the connection between the mall, the beach and Kurrawa Park.
This Public Domain Improvement Project (PDIP) project, which completed in August 2017, has improved public amenity, streetscape outcomes, accessibility and pedestrian safety to event sites and venues through:
- An increased crossing width
- A realigned crossing design, incorporating changes to signal posts, pedestrian push buttons, medians, line marking and signage as needed
- Adequate pedestrian queuing space, aligned with the Victoria Avenue mall-improvement project delivered by City of Gold Coast
- Safety measures as considered appropriate (e.g. bollards) to minimise driver confusion and ensure vehicles do not enter the crossing illegally
- Landscaping design and amenity features, including lighting, to support the prominence of the crossing location and in keeping with the City’s Broadbeach Streetscape Design Guidelines.
The PDIP funds minor capital works to deliver a range of long lasting benefits to the community as well as ensuring the best possible experience for visitors during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).
Active transport is a key pillar of transport planning for GC2018, with a legacy to see a long-term increase in public and active transport use on the Gold Coast.
The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games will transform the Gold Coast and Queensland by creating benefits for our communities before, during and after the 11 days of competition. These are the benefits that this initiative will bring to Queenslanders both within the Gold Coast and across our state:
- GC2018 creates opportunities for permanent legacy benefits from infrastructure improvements.
