Rockingham Road Town Centre Boulevard

Consultation has concluded

12 March 2019

The upgrade of Rockingham Road is an initiative to help improve the Phoenix Town Centre. Longstanding community and business concerns include the safety and appearance of the road, and how it can better function as a road which welcomes people to the town centre.

Read about the decision.

Background

In 2009 the Phoenix Revitalisation Strategy identified the need to upgrade and beautify the road environment as a key project to deliver revitalisation of the area.

In 2016 the City undertook extensive community consultation on a first concept plan for major upgrades. In March 2017 Council considered all the feedback received and deferred the project for two years, in order to consider what further options could be available and to enable further liaison with key stakeholders. This has resulted in two proposed concepts being developed for community engagement.

A key feature of both plans is the change from a dual carriageway (two lanes in both directions) to a single carriageway (one lane in both directions). This will provide the best opportunity to change the character of the road through beautification works, and by slowing traffic to create a more pedestrian friendly environment.

Concept 1: Reflecting the original 2016/2017 concept:

  • New roundabouts at Kent Street and Lancaster Street

  • A mostly continuous median to allow landscaping opportunities and control access, while reducing traffic lanes to one in either direction

  • Conceptual changes to entry points of Phoenix Road.

Concept 2: A new alternative concept that differs from Concept 1 through:

  • Repositioning roundabouts at Coleville Crescent and the northern Shopping Centre entrance

  • Restrict right-out movements north of Lancaster Street, while allowing left-in and right-in movements;

  • A mostly continuous median to allow landscaping and control access, while reducing traffic lanes to one in both directions

  • Changes to entry points of Phoenix Road.
