Maitland City Councillors have “resolved to endorse” slow moving one-way vehicular traffic to Maitland Heritage Mall.

This is the preferred traffic option of both Council officers and traffic consultants GHD.

Vehicles will flow west bound through the mall and left into Elgin Street.

Council engaged consultants GHD to undertake an assessment of reopening the mall to cars by qualitative and quantitative assessment  of five options. Some criterion included pedestrian safety and amenity, circulation, accessibility, length of new kerb construction and net loss of on-road parking spaces.

Maitland City Council has committed to opening Heritage Mall to traffic within two years.
