Deputy mayor Cr Chris Holstein has responded to criticism of lack of road maintenance on the Peninsula.
He said Central Coast Council had scheduled work for the coming 12 months including resealing, initial design works and upgrades and drainage. Cr Holstein said jobs ranged in cost from $4500 up to $250,000, in addition to major projects totalling $5.5 million. Cr Holstein listed roads and streets earmarked for improvements in the current financial year: Adelaide, Augusta, Bapaume, Bathurst, Bay, Blackwall, Bourke, Burnett, Carpenter, Central, Cowper, Dunalban, Gross, Kathleen, Lace, Lalla, Nowack, Onslow, Paton, Patonga, Pozieres, Preistman, Schnapper, Station, Tapestry, The Esplanade, Trafalgar, Uliganda, Wattle, Wellington, West and Woy Woy Bay. “Then you have several capital works projects totalling over $5.5 million including Davis St, Booker Bay; Ryans Rd, Umina; Ocean Beach Rd, Umina; Lone Pine Ave, Umina, and Springwood St, Umina,” Clr Holstein said. “I won’t argue the need for more roadworks on the Peninsula but it is not the case that nothing is being done. “I look forward to greater expenditure, hopefully with greater input from the other levels of government,” Cr Holstein said.
