Works nearing completion

  • Project update - June 2024

    The road safety upgrades at Cromer are nearing completion. High friction asphalt is being installed near the bend of Mass and Alfred Street which will form part of the overall safety improvements.

    Read more on what we are doing and how we are managing the works below.

We are making our roads safer following a review of historical data and feedback from the community about vehicle and pedestrian safety in Cromer. We have installed several safety improvements for the area including:

Carawa Road and Fisher Road North, Cromer – New Roundabout

    • New roundabout plus adjusting kerb alignments at the intersection of Carawa Road and Fisher Road North
    • New pedestrian refuge to improve pedestrian safety

Carawa Road and Alfred Street, Cromer – Pedestrian Crossing Upgrade and Speed Hump

    • New raised concrete pedestrian crossings at the existing roundabout on Carawa Road and Alfred Street
    • A new Watts Profile speed hump to improve traffic calming measures in the vicinity of 300 Alfred Street
    • Enhanced line marking and improved signage in Alfred Street

These improvements were approved by the Northern Beaches Local Traffic Committee on 4 July 2023.

The Local Traffic Committee has also supported the raised pedestrian crossing and the connecting footpaths at the 5 September 2023 meeting.

Learn how we are managing the works

Partial road detours may be in place as we complete the works. Otherwise, traffic control will be on site to ensure the road network will remain open at all times.

Construction of the Carawa Road and Alfred Street, Cromer – Pedestrian Crossing Upgrade and Speed Hump is due to commence mid-April 2024. We anticipate these safety improvements will be completed by June 2024, subject to weather and other unforeseen delays.

Construction of the Carawa Road and Fisher Road North, Cromer – New Roundabout will begin in May 2024. Works are expected to be completed in June 2024, subject to weather and other unforeseen delays.

Whilst efforts will be deployed to minimise disruption, there will be noise generated from construction activities such as demolition, installation of formwork, and pouring of concrete.

Works will be undertaken during the day. Sometimes we need to work outside normal working hours and we will notify our neighbours before night work takes place.

Construction can be disruptive, and we thank you for your patience while we complete this important community project.
