Permanent Roundabout Options Reported to Council

2 months ago

Hyams Beach - Long Term Traffic Management - Permanent Roundabout Options were reported to Council’s Strategy and Assets Meeting on 10 March 2020.

It was resolved at this meeting that Council:

1. Adopts the Illowra Lane and Booderee Avenue intersection as its preferred roundabout option for managing congestion at Hyams Beach in combination with a Seagull Treatment at Naval College Road and Booderee Avenue to provide safer access to and from the Village.

2. Allocates $140,000 in the 2020/21 draft budget for the design of the intersections of both Naval College Road and Illowra Lane with Booderee Avenue.

3. Undertakes minor grading and sealing works at the intersection of Booderee Avenue and Illowra Lane to allow for a temporary roundabout to be established at this location. This is an interim arrangement for the 2020/21 summer, instead of the Naval College Road intersection, until the permanent infrastructure can be established.

4. Notes that traffic management will still be necessary in peak periods even with roundabouts in place.
