Second petition for Patonga crossing
Gosford Council has received a second petition from concerned residents requesting a raised pedestrian crossing be installed in Patonga.
The petition contains more than 45 signatures and seeks the placement of the crossing from the corner of the Patonga Beach Hotel to the beachfront and children's playground along Patonga Dr.
According to a council report, petitioners believe that the corner poses a major safety risk to children seeking to cross the road.
The petitioners stated that council approved the placement of a safety crossing on Patonga Dr in 1995 and that this was the number two priority item in the Patonga Foreshore Landscape Masterplan report.
The petition was noted by councillors at a council meeting on January 27.
