Major Cycle Route (MCR) Northern Line - Harewood Crossing and Restell Street

This project is located on Harewood Road and Restell Street where the railway tracks cross the road. The goal for this project was to upgrade the intersection to make the rail crossing and the road crossing safer for cyclists. It also provided separation between the cyclists and cars when travelling on Restell Street.

This work involved reshaping the crossing over the rail track, installing traffic light chambers and ducting. Overall the work involved 201m of new kerb and channel, 719 m2 of shared path and 492 m2 of shoulder construction. There was also a double sump and stormwater pipe installed, an electric security fence and three new streetlights.

The aim for this project was to improve the safety of the crossing while keeping the businesses and other stakeholders in the area happy. In the end the project finished ahead of programme, on budget and with positive feedback from all the businesses in the area.
