Castaways Beach road/carpark upgrades

A $265,000 project to upgrade the David Low Way carpark at Castaways Beach is complete.

The upgrade has formalised the parking area, created room for more vehicles and generally made the area safer for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.

“We’re adding a two-and-a-half-metre wide painted median strip to separate the north and southbound lanes, plus we’ve built a concrete median strip between the road and the beachside carpark,” Craig Eldridge, Council’s Infrastructure Planning, Design and Delivery Manager said.

“This will keep traffic moving one-way through the carpark, while making it easier and safer for motorists manoeuvring in and out of the car spaces.”

Council also relocated the two nearby bus stops away from the carpark’s entry and exit points, formalised the David Low Way pedestrian crossing points with traffic islands, plus added new street lighting and resurfaced the road through the area.

“We’ve installed new footpaths to the crossing points, while new two-metre-wide on-road cycle lanes through the area will be welcomed by cyclists,” Mr Eldridge said.

Other upgrades included in the project, which was constructed by Exceed Concrete Construction, were new landscaping, drainage improvements, extra seating and designated disabled parking bays.

“Residents told us during community consultation they wanted the area made safer for pedestrians and cyclists. We’re pleased to be able to deliver these improvements.”
