Car pool work to commence
Welcome sign needs relocation
oads and Maritime Services (RMS) will soon start work at the intersection of the Central Coast Highway and Wisemans Ferry Rd, Kariong.
Member for Gosford Mr Chris Holstein said the work would increase safety and improve traffic flow for motorists. “Queuing at this busy intersection can sometimes extend to the F3 Freeway, causing delays to freeway traffic,” Mr Holstein said. “The upgrade is being planned to improve traffic flow, reduce potential delays and reduce the likelihood of crashes at this important intersection. “The Central Coast Highway is the major road link between the F3 Sydney-Newcastle Freeway and Gosford, Erina and the surrounding coastal suburbs. “As part of the project, RMS is building a car pool car park on the corner of the Central Coast Highway and Kangoo Rd.
“RMS this week (Monday, December 5) will start work to build the car park as the first stage of the project. “Once the car park is completed, the informal parking areas along the side of the road will be closed to allow work to start on the intersection upgrade. “The upgrade will also provide additional turning lanes at the intersection of Wisemans Ferry Rd and northbound F3 Freeway entry ramp,” Mr Holstein said. A community update outlining the final plan for the intersection upgrade is being distributed to local residents. Media Release, 6 Dec 2011 Chris Holstein, Member for Gosford
osford Council has resolved to advise the RTA that the Welcome to Gosford signage should be relocated to approximately mid way between Wisemans Ferry Rd and Kangoo Rd, Kariong.
The decision to relocate the sign was a result of the proposed upgrade of the Central Coast Highway and Wisemans Ferry Rd intersection at Kariong. Sufficient room will not be available clear of the existing road boundary for the signage to remain in
its current location once the proposed works are completed. As part of the proposed intersection upgrade, the RTA offered to relocate the signage, at its own cost. The RTA offered Council three alternative locations. Options one and two for
the Welcome to Gosford sign were located before and after the Kangoo Rd intersection approximately 500 metres south east of the sign’s present location. Option three proposed to locate the sign approximately mid way between Wisemans Ferry
Rd and Kangoo Rd on an area already cleared of vegetation beside the Central Coast Highway. Option three was considered the preferred location as it was clear of any other distractions such as traffic lights and intersection constraints. Gosford Council Agenda CIT.32, 6 Dec 2011
