Central Coast Council has announced the construction of an additional level to the Wilson Rd Carpark in Terrigal, creating more than 100 extra parking spaces for the CBD.
The $2.3 million project will include the installation of a lift within the carpark, CCTV,and the provision of additional disabled spaces on each floor to improve the facility’s overall accessibility.
Council Administrator, Mr Ian Reynolds, said the project would support continued growth within the Terrigal CBD.
“We’re expanding the capacity of Wilson Rd Carpark to cater for Terrigal’s ongoing growth as a premier tourist destination,” Mr Reynolds said.
“With a range of commercial and residential developments underway, the availability of parking is important,” he said.
“This upgrade project will provide 110 additional spaces and go a long way to improving accessibility in the area.
“In addition, we are developing detailed designs for a $2.2 million Terrigal CBD Traffic Flow Improvement project, voted for by the community as part of the Stronger Communities’ Fund Major Projects Program.
“This is an exciting time for Terrigal as we prepare for another busy summer season ahead.”
The project is expected to finish on July 12, but to facilitate construction, level 1 was expected to be closed from Tuesday, April 18, until Monday, June 19, and level 2 will be closed from Tuesday, April 18, until Friday, June 30.
However, allowances were made by Council to ensure parking was available for Anzac Day.
Group Leader of Assets, Infrastructure and Business, Mr Mike Dowling, said that a rolling closure of the facility would minimise the project’s effect on the Terrigal CBD.
“Works have been scheduled in an effort to have as little impact as possible on residents and visitors to the area,” Mr Dowling said.
“We’d ask that residents allow some extra time when travelling to Terrigal while the full closure is in place and encourage everyone to take advantage of untimed parking available at The Haven.
