More pedestrian crossings along the increasingly busy Lawrence Hargrave Drive could be in the pipeline.
But it remains unclear just where those new crossings will be.
For more than a year residents in the northern suburbs have been calling for improved pedestrian facilities along Lawrence Hargrave Drive.
There is a concern that it will take a fatality before action is taken.
Data from the Centre for Road Safety shows that, between 2013 and 2017 there have been four accidents involving pedestrians along Lawrence Hargrave Drive between Thirroul and Austinmer.
One of them - a 2014 accident near the Moore Street intersection - involved a serious injury.
The other three - one classed as "moderate injury" and two as minor - all occurred between Bath Street and Raymond Road in the Thirroul CBD.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokeswoman said it was working with Wollongong City Council "to provide a safe and functional pedestrian and cycle network".
"Work is continuing to identify active transport crossing locations in key urban precincts such as Thirroul Beach, Austinmer, Coledale and Clifton," the spokeswoman said.
Wollongong City Council has built a pedestrian refuge in Thirroul in 2016 - but that was with funding from Roads and Maritime Services.
A large reason for the call for improved pedestrian facilities is the increase in traffic along Lawrence Hargrave Drive, particularly on weekends.
However, the Roads and Maritime Services spokeswoman said the rate of traffic growth at the Thirroul end of the road was not massive - just 1.2 per cent a year.
"The annual traffic growth on Lawrence Hargrave Drive is consistent with the rate of urban development across the northern suburbs and in line with the region more generally," the Roads and Maritime Services spokeswoman said.
"Average daily traffic volumes in 2018 along Lawrence Hargrave Drive vary from slightly more than 14,000 vehicles per day at the southern end near Thirroul to just under 6000 vehicles per day at the northern end near Helensburgh."
