Pedestrian safety in the Oak Flats Town Centre is set for improvements with an upgrade project set to kick off next Monday 31 July.
New pedestrian crossings will be constructed at the roundabout intersection of Central Avenue and Fisher Street Oak Flats as part of Council’s 2023/24 Capital Works Program.
The improvements will give priority to pedestrians at this high-pedestrian activity and physically reduce vehicular speeds at key crossing points of the Oak Flats Town Centre.
Mayor of Shellharbour City Mayor Chris Homer said the upgrades would go a long way towards ensuring pedestrian safety in what had become a busy area.
Construction will take place between the hours of 7am to 6pm week days and 8am to 1pm Saturdays. The project is scheduled to be completed late October 2023, weather permitting.
