Dee Why Beachfront Enhancements Approved

By Northern Beaches Council
Posted: 29 May 2021
A proposal to trial enhancements to the waterside precinct of The Strand, Dee Why making it more pedestrian- and bicyclist-friendly has been approved by Council.

Under the NSW Government-funded Streets as Shared Spaces Program, the proposal is to enhance outdoor dining and the pedestrian and bicyclist experience at the 220-metre seaside waterfront strip between Oaks Ave and Dee Why Pde.

Enhancements included a trial of one-way traffic flow, to reduce the speed limit to 30km/h, move car parking spaces and create additional seated areas, create a two-way bicycle lane along the road, and rerouting south-bound bus services.

Mayor Michael Regan said the community feedback clearly showed that the proposal was one that people were interested in, generally supported but had some reservations.

“Our goal is to make this popular beach precinct better for foot and bicycle traffic to encourage street activation projects, while allowing for adequate physical distancing for COVID-19 precautions,” Cr Regan said.

“The changes will see no net loss of parking spaces, better car drop-off access for less mobile people and extra spots for food delivery vehicles.

“We have heard what the community likes and does not like about this plan.

“Preference will be given to existing footpath to be converted to dining space and parking spaces used as new boardwalk and additional pedestrian crossings will be installed in surrounding streets.

“Council will also investigate with the State Government the possibility of a trial of electric buses through various routes in Dee Why.”

The trial will be implemented by the end of July and a review conducted in March 2022.
