Pedestrian and Public Transport Improvements in Fig Tree Pocket

Michael wrote to Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner in August 2019 calling for several improvements to public transport and pedestrian safety in Fig Tree Pocket, including:

  • More frequent buses on the 445 and 430 routes
  • Pedestrian safety upgrades including traffic lights at Fig Tree Pocket Rd and Kenmore Rd intersection, and at 40km/hr speed limit on those roads. 
  • A footpath along Jesmond Rd north of Cubberla St, including fixing a dangerous narrow section

On 25 September 2019, the Lord Mayor responded, committing to fix the dangerous section of walkway on Jesmond Rd, but giving no commitments on the other issues.
