Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link
Coffs Harbour City Council is upgrading the drainage, road pavement and streetscape in Wharf Street.

Coffs Harbour City Council is progressing quickly with major upgrades of King Street.

The $800,000 project is fully funded by Council.

Works include:

  • Construction of kerb and gutter on the southern side of King Street;
  • Completion of kerb and gutter on the northern side of King Street to match and link with the existing barrier-style design;
  • Provision of footpath on the southern side of King Street, connecting with existing footpath on Gailer Drive;
  • Minor drainage works;
  • Narrowing of the road carriageway to accommodate a footpath on a footway with adverse grades.

Kerb and gutter contributions will be required from property owners whose homes are located on
sections where kerb and gutter does not currently exist. Council pays for 50% of the kerb and gutter
cost in these circumstances.

Concrete driveways that are impacted by the works will be reinstated at full cost to Council.

There will be periods when vehicular access to properties is restricted - residents who have special
access or mobility requirements should contact Council’s Project Liaison Officer listed below, to make necessary arrangements prior to works starting.

Council appreciates the cooperation and patience of residents during the works.

For further information, please contact Project Liaison Officer, Damon Leach, phone 66484406.

    Can anyone advise me of the wisdom of reducing the hard surface roadway of King Street which virtually eliminates parking on the street. The road and footpath were sufficiently wide just to be curbed at the original alignment. The narrower road increases risk of vehicular accidents and to pedestrians crossing the road. I see no sense in this waste of ratepayer money.

    Hello. Thank you for your question. The hard surface of the roadway was reduced to nine metres to allow the footpath to be constructed. While there may have been sufficient room in some locations, in others there was not sufficient width, and in some locations the grades were suitable. Residents in areas such as Sandy Beach and Emerald Beach requested during design consultations that their main roads be reduced in width, when the option was there to retain wider pavements. I am advised that motorists tend to drive at reduced speeds on narrower roads.
