Changes planned for Stanwell Park village car park and bridge

WOLLONGONG City Council is calling for comments on proposed changes to the Stanwell Park village carpark and pedestrian bridge.

A service road is already used as an informal carpark and council proposes to formalise the area for improved public safety. Improvements are also planned for pedestrian facilities as well as upgrades to better access to the pedestrian bridge across Lawrence Hargrave Drive.

A new double bus shelter will be built opposite the shops and works will also include blisters, widening footpaths and moving the current bus zone to the North.

The Helensburgh Neighbourhood Forum on Wednesday will discuss the changes on March 14. An on-site community kiosk will be held by council on Saturday, March 24 at 10am at the eastern side of the pedestrian bridge.
