Need to Standardise Path and Pedestrian Safety Signage and Marking

Renwick Lane Leichhardt
Laneway, Sutherland
We need to improved and standardise pedestrian and cycle amenity and safety
path signage and marking to reinforce the law and in some cases to inform the etiquette including:

  • 10kmph on Road Shared Zones
  • Pedestrian/Cycle Shared Zones
  • Pedestrian/Cycle separated Zones
  • At Grade Pedestrian Crossings to include speed guidance
  • Wombat Crossing Signs to incorporate Pedestrian Crossing, Hump and Speed
  • Speed Limits on Footpaths and Shared Paths
  • That all Paths are OnLeash

Signage is inconsistent on Roads giving mixed messages to motorists and endangering pedestrians and cyclists.
