Taking it to the streets - North Fitzroy

Sections of the Capital City Trail, at Rae Street and Brunswick Street North

We're investigating ways to improve safety and traffic flow on the northern sections of Rae Street and Brunswick Street North, and want your feedback

We consulted the community in July 2018 on ways we can improve safety and traffic flow in Fitzroy North, and have prepared a plan based on this feedback.

The community told us they did not want Rae Street and Brunswick Street North closed at the Capital City Trail. However, safety and traffic concerns still remain.

So we have developed five options that involve raised crossings, and would like to hear your thoughts. Click on each option to see what it could look like.

  • Option 1 - Right turn bans in the morning and afternoon peak from Holden St into Brunswick St North
  • Option 2 - Median island on Holden St at Brunswick St North preventing right turns in and out
  • Option 3 - Median island on Holden St at Brunswick St North and Dean St preventing right turns in and out
  • Option 4 - Rae St closure at Capital City Trail and Brunswick St North northbound closure at Park St
  • Option 5 - Combined full closure of Rae St and Brunswick St North at the Capital City Trail

Take the survey and have your say by Sunday 23 December 2018.

Councillors will decide whether to adopt the recommended traffic and place-making plan at a meeting in February 2019. This meeting will be open to the public. As a community member, you are welcome to attend and make a verbal submission.
The final plan is likely to be delivered from 2019/20, subject to funding and final Council endorsement.
