The survey for this project is now closed. Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete the survey, we will now examine the feedback and report back soon.


The City of Hobart has recently undertaken pedestrian improvement works on Hill Street to make West Hobart safer for all road users.

As a result of a request from the community and the West Hobart Environment Network, the project included the installation of a raised 'wombat' crossing on Hill Street, immediately north of Pine Street, to slow down vehicles and give priority to people crossing the road.

The City has been trialling the crossing from February 2019 to determine its effectiveness in increasing the safety of pedestrians, many of whom are children and older people.

The City is now seeking community feedback on the trial of the wombat crossing from users of the West Hobart road network. If the trial is deemed a success, the City may consider installing additional ‘wombat’ crossings in other locations on Hill Street.
