Intersection changes at Hardys Bay
Gosford Council has adjusted its intersection plan for Araluen Dr and Killcare Rd, Hardys Bay, after comments from the communty.
Gosford Council's project officer Mr David Medcalf has advised the Hardys Bay Residents' Group that "as a result of the comments provided by the community on the proposed changing of the priority at the intersection of Araluen Dr and Killcare Rd, the plan has been adjusted to reflect the concerns raised".
According to Mr Medcalf, changes "include reducing the number of signs, retaining parking, retaining the current T-intersection and improving pedestrian safety."
Residents Group newsletter editor Mr Allan Wilson said: "In response, The Hardys Bay residents Group offered a broad assessment of the issue, agreeing that progress has been made by the marking of the road edge east of the intersection with flexible guide posts and noting the adoption of the bus stop on Araluen Dr west of the intersection."
He said the entire safety issue must be considered in conjunction with the pedestrian, parking and traffic flow conditions.
"A safe pedestrian crossing area is required across the intersection area as this is a high pedestrian traffic point during weekends and holiday periods when a high volume of road traffic is in the village."
