Creating community on Coogee Bay Road
The Coogee Bay Road Shared Village project runs from 28 October 2020 to January 2021. It was officially launched by Randwick Mayor Danny Said and Dr Marjori O'Neill Member for Coogee on 10 November 2020.
The project came to life after businesses asked us for help in providing more space on Coogee Bay Road for pedestrians, shoppers and outdoor dining. We’ll also be adding grassed areas, tables and seating.
The changes will help businesses on their COVID recovery journey, and make Coogee Bay Road a better experience for locals and visitors.
We hope that the project makes Coogee Bay Road an even more pleasant space for you to enjoy and feel safe.
The initial changes and installation of infrastructure may cause some minor disturbances. We thank you in advance for your ongoing patience and understanding while we undertake these important works.
- 28 October 2020 - Road closure from 9pm for new line markings. These works will not be noisy.
- 29 October 2020 - Road reopens to one-way traffic flow in a westerly (uphill) direction between Arden and Brook Street.
- 2 - 9 November 2020 - Installation of shared space materials including small grassed areas and additional tables and chairs for local businesses.
- January 2021 - review of trial
Changes to Coogee Bay Road (Arden & Brook St)
Coogee Bay Road will be one-way between Arden Street and Brook Street with vehicles only allowed to travel in a westerly (uphill) direction. Removing a travel lane will create extra space for people and outdoor dining. Parking will remain on both sides of the road.
The changes are temporary and will be implemented initially for three months and then reviewed.
