Project information


The key benefits to the community include:

  • Providing a safe crossing for Beecroft Public School students and other pedestrians
  • Providing better pedestrian connections between properties on the western side of Beecroft Road and the station, community centre and Beecroft Village Green
  • Providing a safer accessible crossing for people with limited mobility and prams by including lifts in the bridge design.

Key features

The pedestrian bridge is about 9.2 metres high and allows a clearance for heavy vehicles up to about 5.5 metres.

The features of the project include:

  • Direct access to the Beecroft Public School from the pedestrian bridge
  • Removal of the existing pedestrian crossing on the southern side of the intersection to improve traffic efficiency and encourage pedestrians to use the bridge
  • A new pedestrian fence on the eastern side of Beecroft Road to encourage the use of the pedestrian bridge and further improve pedestrian safety.

Community information

Community involvement

Transport for NSW invited the community and stakeholders to provide feedback on the proposal from February to April 2015. Comments were received from 59 people and organisations. We considered the feedback and decided to continue developing the proposal.

After refinement of the concept design for the proposal, Transport for NSW invited feedback on tree removal, bridge colour and work hours in July and August 2015. After considering the feedback we decided to proceed with the project.

We would like to thank everyone who took time to review the proposal and provide feedback.
