About the project

Terry Street, (Main Road 266) is classified as a Regional Collector Road, linking Jamberoo to Albion Park. Terry Street between Wiley Street and Simpson Parade has been subject to several recorded crashes in the past five years. This length of Terry Street adjoins residential homes as well as several businesses including take-away shops, a café and other commercial businesses, with a moderate-high pedestrian demand across Terry Street.

Council recently secured funding under the 2021/22 NSW Road Safety Program to improve road safety along Terry Street, between Wiley Street and Simpson Parade, Albion Park. This project will provide upgraded crossing points, the relocation of bus zones and minor junction improvements that will require some turn restrictions.

What's proposed?

The proposed safety upgrades on Terry Street include:

  • Upgrade/install five (5) crossing points (pedestrian refuges and blisters) to improve pedestrian crossing safety.
  • Install three (3) designated turning lanes to reduce the risk of rear-end collisions.
  • Implement turning restrictions at Wiley Street and Hughes Drive to reduce the number of conflict points.
  • Relocate the existing bus shelter which currently obstructs sight distance when exiting Wiley Street. New location is proposed outside of 128 Terry Street, however this may be subject to change.
  • Construct new infrastructure to be disability compliant (where existing grades permit).
  • Install shared use path links to each of the upgraded crossing points.
  • Reduce the speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h (Transport for NSW to manage and implement this change).

What will the impact be to on-street parking?

There will be impacts to on-street parking, and in most blocks, parking will be retained on both sides.

Council aims to limit the loss of on-street parking, however, the installation of pedestrian refuges and blisters will result in the loss of some parking. This is to ensure compliance with pedestrian sight distance requirements and to manage vehicular queue lengths and make way for the upgrades.

The total on-street parking loss as a result of this project will be confirmed at the detailed design stage however the proposed parking restrictions are detailed in Figure 2.

Are there changes to turning options?

The proposed turning restrictions will result in prohibiting the following turns:

  • Turning right from Wiley Street onto Terry Street (southbound)
  • Turning right from Hughes Drive onto Terry Street (northbound)

Turn restrictions at Wiley Street and Hughes Drive have been proposed to reduce the number of conflict points for both motorists and pedestrians (noting that there is a crossing point between both locations). The restrictions of these turns reduce the business of the intersection and also reduce the likelihood of a crash occurring. Alternative routes are available as shown in Figure 3.

Next Steps

Any concerns and comments regarding this proposal will be considered and amendments (if required) made to the design as appropriate. The outcomes of the consultation and a recommendation will be reported to the Shellharbour Traffic Committee in late 2021 / early 2022, and then in turn a subsequent Council Meeting.

How long will the work take and when will work start?

Council has separated the project into two main phases: Design and Construction.

Further updates will be provided during these phases by stakeholder notification and updates to this project page.

It is anticipated, subject to approval, the project will be completed by the end of June 2022.
