Pedestrian Crossing Kerry Street, Sanctuary Point: Council staff are currently compiling a 10 year pedestrian crossings strategy for Council resolution. Due to funding constraints, Council relies on grant funding for pedestrian improvements across the city, and the purpose of the strategy will be to assist Council to prioritise its applications for grant funding opportunities. Council will undertake pedestrian and traffic counts at the location for consideration into the strategy. Further consultation with Community Consultative Bodies citywide will be further carried out following the development of the draft strategy.
