Central Coast Council has been granted $995,000 for a shared footpath and cycleway at Carrak Rd, Kincumber, Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, and Central Coast Mayor, Jane Smith, have announced.
Crouch said the funding is being delivered to Council through the Stronger Country Communities Fund. “Because we’ve built a strong NSW economy, we’re able to provide funding to improve the local community,” Mr Crouch said.
“This is one of nine projects, totalling a $7.5m investment in the Central Coast region. He said the grant would fully fund construction of a three metre wide, 320 metre long, footpath between Avoca Dve and the Kincumber Boat Ramp.[map reference]
“The path will provide a missing link between Davistown and Kincumber South, enabling better accessibility for pedestrians, cyclists, parents with prams and people with disability,” Crouch said.
“Construction on the shared footpath and cycleway is expected to commence before the end of 2018.” Mayor Jane Smith said Council was pleased to secure the funding which would deliver a key project from Council’s first ever Bike Plan, enhancing local connections for the Kincumber community. “We know how much our community value our shared pathways, as they provide vital connections for communities, promote healthy lifestyles and no doubt this new pathway will be well utilised,” Mayor Smith said.
“The new pathway will provide a missing link to connect the community to local services. “This is another great example of how we are working with the State Government to create a vibrant and sustainable Central Coast.”
