New 'no stopping' zones to ease traffic congestion
ADDITIONAL 'no stopping' zones will be created on Captain Cook Drive, Seventeen Seventy after feedback from nearby residents and landowners.
Gladstone Regional Council's engineering services portfolio spokesman Rick Hansen said the revised parking arrangements would address limited road width in the area between the restaurant and camping ground.
"Residents have experienced congestion of traffic along this stretch of road, particularly in peak holiday times, with current parking arrangements contributing to road blockage issues," Cr Hansen said.
In addition to existing signs, extra 'no stopping' signs will be installed, as well as placement of about 800m of yellow line marking.
Council will relocate the southern and northern ends of the 20km/h shared zone, install speed humps and advisory warning signs and provide partial reimbursement for the costs of driveway modification to owners of domestic properties within the shared zone.
"To minimise disruptions to residents and visitors in the area, these works are likely to be coordinated in conjunction with upcoming programmed resurfacing works," Cr Hansen said.
