January 23, 2021 – Stage One of the Artarmon Local Centres Public Domain Master Plan is scheduled to commence in March 2021. Traffic calming measures will be installed on Elizabeth Street, Hampden Road (near the Brand Street roundabout and McMillan Road) as well as minor works on Francis, Broughton and Jersey Roads.

November 15, 2020 – Council has adopted the Master Plan as the primary design guide for all future public domain projects in the Artarmon Local Centre and endorsed the commencement of detailed design and documentation for Stages 1 and 2.  Stage 1 covers traffic calming in Elizabeth St as well as around the village and is planned to commence early next year. Council has released designs for a new “wombat” crossing outside 26 Hampden Rd.  When this crossing is installed, Council plans to remove the pedestrian refuge on the crest of the hill near Cleland Rd.  APA is concerned that all residents in the area east of Hampden Rd, including those in Cleland and Parkes have not been notified of the proposed changes.
