After six months of a successful shared village project in Coogee, the infrastructure will begin to be removed on Monday 3 May 2021. The shared village project was launched in November 2020 by Mayor Danny Said and after the initial three-month trial and positive feedback, the project was extended for an additional three months until the end of April 2021.
The project came to life after businesses asked Council for help in providing more space on Coogee Bay Road for pedestrians, shoppers and outdoor dining. The goal was to help businesses on their COVID recovery journey, and make Coogee Bay Road a better experience for locals and visitors.
The Coogee Bay Road Shared Village project will start to be removed on Monday 3 May 2021, with two-way traffic to be re-instated from Thursday 6 May (weather permitting). The three bus services (370, 374 and X74) from Coogee to the City will also return to their route along Coogee Bay Road.
- Monday 3 May 2021 – Road closure from 8.30pm – 5.00am for removal of sandstone blocks, furniture and planter boxes. Road remains one-way.
- Tuesday 4 May 2021 – Road closure from 8.30pm – 5.00am for removal of synthetic grass and road cleaning. Road remains one-way.
- Wednesday 5 May 2021 – Road closure from 8.30pm – 5.00am to reinstate line marking and install new signs. Road reopens to two-way traffic flow between Arden and Brook Street on Thursday 6 May.
- Monday 10 May 2021 - Bus services 370, 374, X74 return to normal route along Coogee Bay Road.
To assist with the reinstatement of the traffic conditions it is advised that you do not use the kerbside parking on Coogee Bay Road between Brook Street and Arden Street during the times mentioned above.
The period of change while we remove the infrastructure may cause some minor disturbances. Please note that the programmed dates are contingent on the weather. There may be some minor noise associated with the works, however every effort will be made to minimise any inconvenience to the public during the removal process.
