New upgrade phase will include more parking

The next phase of work to improve Gellatly Road will run from  from the Powers Creek pedestrian bridge to the CNR Wharf, say district staff.

The approximately 720 metres project will a cost $1.25 million and  include replacing the  bridge with a four-metre wide bridge with black steel railings and wood accents and a concrete surface with a natural wood-stamped pattern.

In addition to  resurfacing the roadway and putting in two designated bike lanes, the walkway along Gellatly Bay will be enhanced with a landscaped boulevard and three pedestrian outlook features.

There will be a total of 36 regular parking stalls created  and three handicapped parking stalls along the roadway.

The work will follows on similar improvements made to road between the Westside Yacht Club and The Cove resort last year.

Further details about the next phase of work will be brought to council by staff at a later date.
