Dec 2022 - Signalised intersection is preferred option

Transport for NSW thanks you for your feedback on our proposed options to improve safety at the pedestrian crossing on Frederick Street near John Street, Ashfield.

Following a road safety review and community consultation in October, Transport is progressing the detailed design for option 1 - a signalised intersection at John Street.

The consultation report is available below, in the Reports section. We will keep you updated on progress through community notifications or email if you have subscribed for project updates.

Project information


In response to community feedback, Transport has carried out a road safety review around the existing pedestrian crossing on Frederick Street near John Street, Ashfield.

Key features

We sought feedback on two options:

  • Signalising the intersection of Frederick Street and John Street. This will mean restricting right hand turn movements from Frederick Street into John Street.
  • Installing a signalised pedestrian crossing on Frederick Street mid way between John and Church Streets. This would restrict all right-hand turn movements and the through movement at the intersection of Frederick Street and John Street (left in left out only).

We are now proceeding with the detailed design for option 1 following community consultation.


Traffic signals at this intersection will improve safety by separating traffic movements to minimise conflicts and enabling pedestrian movements at all four legs of the signalised intersection, as opposed to the current crossing 18 metres west of the corner.

The changes will also improve safety for motorists entering Frederick Street from John Street.
