An upgraded Crayford Street West for Avondale

One of our focus areas has been to improve the safety and street appeal of the connection from the train station to the town centre.

In July 2022 we created a slower speed zone in front of Avondale Primary School, making it safer to cross the road through raised zebra crossings, improved street lighting, and improved drop-off and pick-up parking.

We also consulted with residents, the school community and local businesses on the proposed changes to reduce parking spaces from 44 to 38 as well as the change in time restrictions. Our proposal aimed to discourage all-day parking and improve availability for residents, people visiting local businesses, and school drop-offs and pick-ups. Feedback received sought an alternative option to be explored for some of the P5 school drop-off parking, resulting in a positive shift for all stakeholders to the school frontage on Layard St.
