MANAGING ACCESS AND SAFETY

Vehicle access

The existing traffic arrangements will remain, with vehicles entering and exiting the Woolworths car park via a one-way system.

 

Access into the car park is via the south off Old Barrenjoey Road and the exit is via the north driveway onto Old Barrenjoey Road. The car park currently accommodates over 40 vehicles, which will remain once the refurbishment is complete.

Existing arrangements for cars, pedestrians and deliveries will continue to be managed in the same way as they are today.

Pedestrian access and safety

You will be able to continue to walk  from the village into the store via Old Barrenjoey Road. The loading dock area will continue to be separated from pedestrian access, with all heavy vehicles continuing to access the store via the rear lane off Avalon Parade.

Deliveries and truck operations

Store deliveries will be made by trucks via the rear lane off Avalon Parade.

All deliveries will be managed within the site, as will waste and recycling collection. Woolworths will continue to plan each delivery with great care to ensure safety and efficiency. Deliveries will occur between Monday and Sunday (9am – 2pm). This is consistent with the existing delivery times.

Construction

Due to open mid 2022,  the store will be closed from 2 May to 31 July 2022 for a three-month construction period. We thank the community for their patience during this period.

Ways to shop with us during the store closure, include:

  • Pop-up shop - pick up a great range of essentials at our temporary small store just down the road at Shop 1, 24 Avalon Parade, Avalon

  • Woolworths Mona Vale - located at 25-29 Park Street, Mona Vale

  • Home delivery - Shop online for home delivery at woolworths.com.au.

During construction, care will be taken to restrict and minimise dust, noise and traffic impacts. Best practice measures will be taken, including barriers and screens to contain dust and maintaining a clean worksite. A particular focus will be on minimising impacts with surrounding community areas and neighbouring businesses.

We will keep the community informed on the exact timing for the store’s temporary closure and construction timeline.
