Terrigal locals will get the chance to have their say on upcoming Council works to ease congestion in the town later this month, with the local government holding two community consultations at the Surf Life Saving Club.


Council's set to begin $2.209 million works to widen footpaths, install pedestrian crossings and upgrade intersections in the CBD in March.


“Throughout February, Council will be providing information to the community and seeking feedback on key projects including changes to traffic flow through the Terrigal CBD and the installation of smart parking sensors to improve parking in the area,” Mayor Jane Smith says.


“Once completed, these projects will improve traffic flow and parking as well as deliver improvements to the general amenity of the area for tourists and residents alike.


“I encourage the community to come along to one of our Let’s Talk Terrigal information sessions later this month.”


It follows the Federal Government committing to installing 270 smart parking sensors in Terrigal last year, to improve parking turnover, while Council also plans to make part of the Esplanade a shared zone and remove the one-way streets (main image, below).

The information sessions take place at 6:30pm on Monday the 26th and Wednesday the 28th, while feedback can be left online until March 2nd.
