Traffic around North Beach will see some disruptions as the carpark gets a slight makeover starting on Wednesday. Streetscape improvements including new kerb, guttering and footpath paving along George Hanley Drive, Cliff Road and the North Beach Carpark will be part of the six-week project by Wollongong City Council. "There will be some disruptions to traffic who normally use George Hanley Drive while this work is underway, and we will have traffic controllers in place to redirect drivers accessing the area," Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery said. Throughout the works, George Hanley Drive will be closed to traffic with traffic controllers diverting cars to use Blackett Street as a detour. Pedestrians will have access to George Hanley Drive throughout the project. A small section of the Northbeach Carpark will be closed for the first week of the project as a new guttering is installed. The rest of the carpark will be open and available for use throughout the works.

Projects like this one gives us a chance to make improvements to existing infrastructure so that our community can continue to use it safely," Cr Bradbery said. "This is one of the busiest pedestrian areas where both locals and visitors come to enjoy one of the most enjoyable and active parts of our City at all hours."
