  • Redman Road Plaza Update

    about 1 year ago
    Redman rd plaza

    We’re now calling Tenders for construction of the new and improved Redman Road Plaza Stage 1. Works on Stage 1 are scheduled to commence March 2017. The works will create a new, greener community space to activate the western side of Pittwater Road.

    The designs were adopted by Council in 2015 based on strong community support. They include an elevated lighting structure, to make the Plaza safe and attractive at night, along with hanging gardens, seating and a water feature. Functional and integrated public art is proposed to reflect the community and culture of Dee Why.

    Currently, only Stage 1 is proposed for construction. Stage 2 is subject to available funding and may be undertaken in conjunction with redevelopment of adjoining private properties.

    The works will result in some short-term traffic impacts caused by the need for a construction zone. Once complete, the new Plaza will provide more space for pedestrians. Six on-street parking spaces will be removed along with the underutilised taxi zone.

    We have contacted local businesses and residents to let them know of the upcoming works. We’ll also be working with the contractor to minimise and where possible mitigate impacts on the local area during construction.

  • Phase 1 Streetscape Update (including two way traffic scheme)

    over 1 year ago

    The preparation of preliminary design plans for the Phase 1 streetscape upgrades are in progress. These plans will incorporate the proposed two-way traffic scheme adopted by Council on 2 June 2016.

    The proposed two-way traffic scheme is essentially the same as the existing traffic network except that it will include the addition of the new two-way Link Road between Howard Avenue and Oaks Avenue, and a one-way north bound Link Lane between Pacific Parade and Oaks Avenue through the Woolworths site. The two-way traffic network was found to offer better accessibility, route choice, reduced travel times, reduced stops, reduced congestion and very similar travel speeds to the one-way network.

    We propose to exhibit these plans in September for community feedback. The results of community feedback will be reported to Council towards the end of 2016. Subject to Council approval detailed designs will then be undertaken, and the upgrade works started in the second half of 2017.

  • Streetscape Designs Commence

    over 1 year ago

    We can now progress the streetscape designs, following Council approval of the new traffic scheme at their meeting 2 June 2016. The new traffic scheme will retain a two-way system in lieu of the one-way traffic scheme included in the Dee Why Town Centre Master Plan.

    We have now commenced preparation of the preliminary design plans for Phase 1 streetscape upgrades incorporating the above two-way traffic scheme.

    Once prepared, the preliminary design plans will be placed on public exhibition. The results of community feedback and any required changes will then be considered by Council towards the end of 2016. Subject to Council approval, detailed designs will then be undertaken, and the upgrade works started in the second half of 2017.

    The streetscape upgrades will include new wider pavements, bike paths, plants, furniture, lighting and public art to highlight the vibrant community and spirit of Dee Why.
