A slice of piazza

THE dysfunctional Newcastle Street/Carr Place intersection has an upgrade on the cards to turn it into a mini piazza.

Just near the busy Leedy hotel, the area’s a mess of intersecting streets clogged with a quagmire of taxis, buses, cars, delivery trucks, bikes and pedestrians.

Vincent council’s plan aims to make the area a little more people-friendly, since currently pedestrians have cars coming at them from four directions and every crossing is a roll of the dice.

It’s up for public comment until April 3 (plans on the Vincent council website or 9273 6000) and if it gets the go ahead works would kick off later this year.
