We can deduce the design of the tramway in Anzac Parade from this document and can assess the impact of the tramway on traffic movements in Anzac Parade and in the whole of the South Eastern Suburbs. The diagram above indicates the design of the tram stop between the University of New South Wales and NIDA. Things to note are:
- All traffic including buses are funnelled into one lane each way as in George Street.
- There are head-high pedestrian barriers right left and centre to shepherd passengers into the cattle-cars.
However there is very little wriggle room between the University of NSW and NIDA as you can confirm with Google Maps. The sheer glass foyers of NIDA are built on the street boundaries and University buildings are on the boundaries.
We will assess the impacts of running a tramway along a vital traffic artery with all the data that is currently available. The Road and Traffic Authority has more up to date data and can run Apps with this data, but O'Farrell will not allow the RTA to do modelling of traffic flows around tram stops.
