Port Macquarie-Hastings Council in partnership with the NSW State Government is improving pedestrian connectivity in Telegraph Point.
The improvements are:
- A new footpath including pedestrian refuges on Mooney Street from Morse Lane (in front of the Sports Club) to Log Wharf Reserve Boat Ramp.
- Parking upgrades, including formalised parking spaces and pedestrian refuges adjacent to the Telegraph Point Primary School.
The upgrades will significantly improve safety for pedestrians and motorists in Telegraph Point, and will create a more accessible all abilities pathway link between the residential area and the Log Wharf Reserve.
Stage 1 works include provision of approx 800m of path along Mooney Street between Morse Lane and Log Wharf Reserve. Stage 2 includes design and delivery of the carparking area, and associated paths and pedestrian refuges.
Stage 1 works are expected to be completed over a 12 week period subject to favourable weather and undertaken by Council’s internal works staff. Design of Stage 2 will be undertaken concurrently with physical works to be done on completion of Stage 1.
The project will cost $698,000, funded by the NSW Government under the Stronger Country Communities Fund.
