    • Upgraded pedestrian crossings
    • Garden beds, street furniture and landscaping

  • Shared Path - Howard Avenue, Dee Why

    4 months ago

    Council undertook an extensive consultation process including direct mail to 12,000 residents and businesses within Dee Why. We received a total of 101 submissions.

    These submissions identified a number of issues that were important to the community including safety, parking and trees.

    As a result of the consultation process, Council has made a number of improvements to the proposal, including;

    1. Increasing the number of advanced trees to be planted as part of the works which will maintain the avenue of trees. These will be planted in tree cells to prevent damage to infrastructure and provide conditions to encourage rapid growth.
    2. Locating pedestrian traffic closer to the boundary and cycle traffic closer to the road to reduce the conflict with cars exiting driveway
    3. Removing the conflict between pedestrians and cyclists, by delineation (line marking) to provide separation
    4. A number of existing tree trunks will be salvaged and re-used for nature play in playgrounds across the Northern Beaches

    Council has made the decision to proceed with the project so as to improve Howard Avenue for the long term and to address safety issues with damaged infrastructure such as footpaths and kerbing.

    Detailed design will commence in May 2018 with construction expected to start in August 2018.

  • Redman Road Plaza Progress Update

    about 1 year ago

    Electrical Works

    Electrical Poles

    We have now poured footings for the new light pole next to the Master Builders driveway and replaced the leaning pole on the corner of Redman Road and Francis Street.

    Ausgrid Network Upgrade

    Yesterday, contractors completed the Ausgrid network upgrade.

    These works included;

    • Power network adjustment
    • Cut over to new network
    • Removal of overhead poles and wires

    Catenary Lighting Feature

    We have now poured the eightfootings in preparation for the new catenary lighting feature. The footings will provide the foundations required to stabilise the new structure.

    Water Feature

    Installation of the pipes and jets for the new water feature have now commenced.

    What’s Next?

    Concreting

    We are now finalising the levels in preparation for the concrete base slab so that paving can commence in September. Following these works, more areas will be made available for public use. This will also reduce the impact whilst works continue.

    Tree Planting

    Planting of 8 new 6m tall palm trees will commence in September.

    Who can I contact if you have any concerns during these works?

    If you have any concerns during the works, you can speak directly to the contractors on site, or alternatively, you are welcome to contact Andrew Camarsh on 9942 2385.
