Comment sought on Esplanade shared zone design

Public comment is being sought on the design of a "shared zone" for The Esplanade, Umina, between Ocean Beach Rd and Trafalgar Ave.

Central Coast Council has released a concept design which includes traffic calming measures and streetscaping "to enhance the amenity for the many users of this area".

The aim of the project was to provide a safer environment for all users with a focus on a pedestrian priority, project documents state.

"An effort being made to remove non-essential vehicle travel through the laneway to increase safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

"Vehicular access will not be removed.

"However, a lower speed limit of 10km/h will apply while travelling through this area."

Drivers must give way to pedestrians at all times.

Vehicles can only stop in a Shared Zone if they obey the parking signs and park in marked bays, if they are provided.

This project was developed after "numerous requests to slow traffic and improve pedestrian safety".

Council has received a grant of $327,528 under the Streets as Shared Spaces program, which provides one-off funding to support councils to pilot innovative ideas for streets as safe, shared public spaces.

The design includes pavement stencilling and artwork, seating, landscaping, signage and related infrastructure.

Regulatory signage and pavement markings will be included.

Project documentation states that the design ensure there is minimal disturbance to residents in this area.

"Streetscape elements have been designed to minimise impact on adjoining property owners."

Access to private properties will not be restricted.

Construction is anticipated to start in May and is anticipated to be completed by September.

The comment period closes on April 26.

Council traffic team leader Mr Scott Stapleton has been named project contact and may be emailed at
