Slip lanes are a mechanism to ensure motor vehicles can turn without waiting at an intersection. They're designed to the fast, efficient movement of motor vehicles, while penalising the environment and people who want to walk, ride, rest and feel safe. This one in Fairlight on Sydney Road (map link) is a signalised intersection and delays people walking by increasing the crossing distance across the road and occupies about 200 square metres of public space.
The Fairlight fling offers an opportunity to reclaim and repurpose that space to improve the environment, increase the space for people walking, sitting, to do business and have public space, reduce the dangers posed by motor vehicles.
Congratulations to Northern Beaches council, all the volunteer groups that participated by providing set up, yoga classes, stalls, activities, props and the support.
