  • Traffic Changes Update

    over 1 year ago

    Detailed traffic modelling to determine the best future traffic system for the Town Centre has been completed. At its meeting on the 24 May 2016, Council will consider a recommendation to retain the existing two-way network, rather than the one-way scheme prescribed by the Dee Why Town Centre Master Plan.

  • Proposed Shared Path Howard Avenue

    over 1 year ago

    As part of the improvements to the Dee Why Town Centre, the Roads and Maritime Services has provided some funding to assist with designing active connections in the centre including a bike path to the beach.

    A preliminary concept plan for a shared path in Howard Avenue was endorsed by the Traffic Committee at its meeting on 5 April 2016 (see Agenda Item 4.1). Council subsequently resolved to proceed to detailed designs before exhibiting the plans for community comment (see Minute item 3.1).

    The bike path will be installed as part of future streetscape upgrades and Council is working with State Government agencies to finance this work for delivery as part of our future town centre improvements.

    In consultation with Roads and Maritime Services (RMS), we have been undertaking further detailed traffic modelling to determine the best future traffic system for the Town Centre.

    Following RMS approval of the proposed traffic changes, the streetscape designs will be progressed and placed on public exhibition.

    The streetscape designs will include any approved traffic changes, new wider footpaths, improved pedestrian accessibility, bike paths, plants, furniture, lighting and public art to highlight the vibrant community and spirit of Dee Why.

  • Background

    over 2 years ago

    Substantive traffic modelling has been carried out to understand and plan what changes can be made to the existing roads to better cater for increased pressures from traffic and population growth in the Dee Why Town Centre.

    The design that will best cater for future traffic flows was included in the Dee Why Town Centre Master Plan, which was adopted by Council in August 2013.

    The design includes:

    1. Creation of a circular one-way system east along part of Oaks Avenue, north along a new link road between Oaks Avenue and Howard Avenue, and west along part of Howard Avenue,
    2. A new two-way link road between Oaks Avenue and Pacific Parade (subject to dedication as part of future re-development of Woolworths property),
    3. Improvements to existing queuing provisions in Pittwater Road for the right turn into Oaks Avenue, and out of Fisher Road into Pittwater Road, including the removal of the right turn out of Pacific Parade.

    The implementation of the traffic changes is scheduled for mid to late 2016, subject to approvals from the NSW Roads and Maritime Service.
