    The bus stop in Howard Avenue outside Walter Gors park will now be retained, but be relocated 60m further to the east (i.e. toward the beach).

    The relocation is required to avoid conflict with the entrance to the new Walter Gors Park and to be clear of the intersection of a proposed new link road through Council’s car park.

    A new bus shelter will be installed at the new bus stop location as part of the new Walter Gors Park works. Currently, the new Park is scheduled to open in February 2017, weather permitting.

  • Howard Avenue Shared Path on hold

    10 months ago

    The exhibition of the preliminary concept plans for a shared pedestrian and bike path between Walter Gors Park and The Strand has been put on hold to further consider impacts of the proposal, especially on trees and carparking. Should the proposal proceed to public exhibition, the community will be notified and provided the opportunity to comment.

    Background

    Howard Ave was identified in both the Warringah Bike Plan 2010 and the Dee Why Town Centre Master Plan 2013 as a priority bike route between Pittwater Road and Dee Why Beach. A new shared path would promote and encourage sustainable transport, improve accessibility for bikes, pedestrians and mobility scooters and provide an important connection to the existing bike path network.

  • Phase 1 Streetscape Upgrades - Preliminary Design Plan (including two way traffic scheme)

    10 months 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.

  • Proposed Shared Path Howard Avenue

    11 months ago

    We will soon be exhibiting the preliminary concept plans for a shared path between Walter Gors Park and The Strand. This path was identified as an important link in the Warringah Bike Plan and the Dee Why Town Centre Masterplan, enabling safe navigation for pedestrians and cyclists between the Town Centre and the Beach.

    The potential of loss of trees and/or parking has been a major matter of consideration in developing the preliminary concept. Whilst this concept proposes the removal of trees on the northern side of Howard Ave, it is planned to replace them with a similar number of a more appropriate species of trees of an advanced height.

    The community will be given the opportunity to comment on the preliminary concept plan which will be placed on public exhibition late June/ early July. The plans will then be subject to further Council resolution based on this feedback.
