Randwick Council’s plans include the development of two plazas and pedestrian walkways, aimed to make the area more accessible and enjoyable for pedestrians while also reducing traffic movements and speed.

The first of the two plazas, Wild Street Plaza, will be created by closing Wild St to cars and closing the slip lane from Maroubra Rd to Bunnerong Rd. This plaza will feature new seating, trees, landscaping, and public art, providing an inviting space for pedestrians to relax and enjoy the surrounding area.

The second plaza, known as the Robey Street Plaza, will be a shared zone at the junction of Robey St and Maroubra Rd. It will be created by closing the slip lane between Maroubra Rd and Walsh St and will also feature seating, green space and trees, and public art.

In addition to the plazas, the pedestrian-friendly masterplan also includes the development of new cycleways throughout Maroubra. There are new bi-directional cycleways being proposed along central Anzac Parade median, on the eastern side of the central median, and on Maroubra Rd.

One of the key benefits of the pedestrian-friendly masterplan is the reduction in traffic movements and speed. By making the area more accessible to pedestrians, the plan aims to reduce the number of cars on the road, thereby reducing traffic congestion and improving air quality.
