The impact of the proposed ecotourism addition has been assessed by expert traffic engineers to determine what changes (if any) would be required to ensure that safety and efficiency are maintained. This was carried out through an assessment of the existing site conditions, estimated parking requirements and traffic generation.
The existing ‘seagull’ intersection arrangement on MR545 (Broken Head Road/The Coast Road) has been assessed according to the warrants for turn treatment and safe intersection sight distance from Austroads. The existing arrangement provides for traffic safety and efficiency for both the existing and proposed development traffic generation, with capacity for much higher traffic volumes. The existing access connection to MR545 also has enough width and length to meet the requirements of AS2890 for access. Therefore no changes are proposed.
