Raised intersection for Ettalong
Gosford Council's Road Safety and Traffic Unit has recommended a raised threshold for the intersection of Schnapper Rd and Flathead Rd, Ettalong.
Construction is expected to start this financial year.
The proposal was initiated in a petition in November which requested that Council investigate ways of discouraging loud and unsafe vehicle usage in Schnapper Rd and to control the overflow parking at the Ettalong market-hotel complex.
Council's quarterly petitions report from October 1 until December 31 stated that the raised threshold method was favoured over speed humps as past experience had revealed speed humps caused concern to local residents who resided in close proximity to these devices due to the 24 hour daily noise problem generated by vehicles traversing them.
In addition to improving pedestrian safety in the vicinity of the Ettalong Beach Village Centre, an application for the provision of a 40km high pedestrian activity area was lodged with the Roads and Maritime Service for consideration-approval for future funding.
