Park Avenue Transport Interchange works update
COFFS Harbour's new transport interchange is beginning to take shape, with works expected to be completed in August.
The interchange works, funded by the NSW Government, include improved shelters and seating, better lighting, widened footpaths, landscaping and a new waiting area that is to be located in the Park Avenue multi-storey carpark.
During construction Coffs Harbour City Council is working to minimise temporary impacts on commuters, shoppers and businesses.
The temporary bus stop seating on the northern side of Park Avenue is now being relocated to reduce disturbance to businesses.
Parking on the south side of Park Avenue is expected to be reinstated with completion of Stage 1 works (paving and landscaping) on June 12.
Parking on the northern side of Park Avenue will be reinstated in July when Stage 1 works on that section are completed and the bus stop is returned to its original location in front of the multi-storey carpark.
Council has now reinstalled two car spaces on the northern side of Park Avenue to allow night-time business access from 5.45pm to 6am.
Stage 2 of the Park Avenue transport interchange will be completed in August, with the installation of shelters and seats. Installation works are scheduled to take place outside peak trading hours to reduce impacts on business and retail.
