Transport for New South Wales and Shoalhaven City Council have been working on pedestrian safety improvements along St Vincent Street and at the intersection of South Street Ulladulla following the tragic accident which took place in June 2020.

In consultation with Ulladulla High School, Kellam Bus Lines and Ulladulla Bus Lines, Council and TfNSW have developed a three-phase strategy to improve pedestrian and vehicle movements at the site.

To make sure that we create a better outcome for students and motorists and that we don’t inadvertently create unacceptable outcomes at the site or elsewhere, Council and TfNSW will liaise regularly

Transport for New South Wales and Shoalhaven City Council have been working on pedestrian safety improvements along St Vincent Street and at the intersection of South Street Ulladulla following the tragic accident which took place in June 2020.

In consultation with Ulladulla High School, Kellam Bus Lines and Ulladulla Bus Lines, Council and TfNSW have developed a three-phase strategy to improve pedestrian and vehicle movements at the site.

To make sure that we create a better outcome for students and motorists and that we don’t inadvertently create unacceptable outcomes at the site or elsewhere, Council and TfNSW will liaise regularly with Ulladulla High School, the Bus Companies and the Parents and Citizens Association on the effectiveness of the measures, the details of any investigations and strategies to engage with the wider community.

Phase 1 – Start of Term 3

  • Water filled barriers and appropriate signage
  • The drop off site along St Vincent Street moved a few metres to the northern side of the mid-block crossing.
  • Traffic marshals on site for two weeks during school zone times to monitor movements and make any adjustments to barriers and signage.

Phase 2 – During Term 3

  • Line marking improvements will be installed.
  • Purpose built pedestrian fencing will be installed to replace temporary water filled barriers.
  • Buses will leave school pick up areas in a manner to ease congestion onsite. Left turn buses will leave before right turn buses.

Phase 3 – Complete by end of Term 4

  • Investigation of possible intersection upgrades which may include roundabouts, traffic signals and/or further improvement to crossing facilities.
  • Investigation of ongoing CCTV and monitoring or manning options.
  • Investigation of possible adjustments to the bus pick up area and the way buses line up.
