Bringing temporary changes to the central streets of Henderson

The Henderson Streets for People trial is about testing several ways to make Henderson’s streets safer for people, more vibrant and less dominated by traffic. We’re trialling a number of temporary changes to the streets so that we can collect real feedback and data on people’s actual experiences of the changes.

From 5 July, we began to remove part of the Henderson Streets for People trial as a response to potential safety and compliance concerns. This included the left turn lane from Great North Road onto Henderson Valley Road which reopened from 8 July.

From 12 July we removed the bus lane and shared path along Railside Ave (between Stevies Lane and the Great North Road intersection) to its original layout. These changes have been undertaken ensuring safety and complying with all required approvals and road controls.

The remainder of the trial will remain in place until a further decision is made in late July.

Your feedback matters

The temporary changes will be trialed between 13 May to 30 July. During this time we will be collecting feedback based on the community’s experience so we can tweak changes before we assess its long-term future. Let us know your feedback on these temporary changes by filling in the feedback form below.

Progress from late 2020

Last year through a series of co-design workshops, Henderson locals shared their ideas for ways to make central Henderson streets safer, more vibrant and less dominated by traffic. We opened a Pop Up Shop on Railside Ave and during the two week period, 79 locals dropped in and participated in our co-design workshops and we received in total 500 pieces of feedback including from 150 locals at the Henderson Christmas Festival and other local events. The input gained has given us valuable insights for the project. Check out the 'updates' under the documents section.
