$1.8M for five road projects

A road in Wyongah newly sealed and repaired with the new recycling technology.

More than $1.8M for five road projects in the north, is the latest round of funding under the Central Coast local roads package.

The NSW and federal governments joined forces for the Fixing Local Roads program, and Central Coast Council received $2.7M for nine projects that it put forward across the region.

Gorokan Dr in Lake Haven will be upgraded between Durham Rd and Goobarabah Ave, $783,750.

Other projects in the north are: Gregory St, Berkeley Vale, $329,250; Cornwall Ave, Gorokan, $259,500; Donaldson St, Wyong $228,000; and, Lakeview Ave, Gorokan $212,250

Parliamentary Secretary for Central Coast, Adam Crouch, said this funding was targeted at small projects that would make a big difference in a short amount of time.

“Central Coast Council will deliver each project and this will help drive local job opportunities”, he said.

Federal Member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks, said: “These projects will need to be delivered within two years of receiving funding, to ensure that local communities, like the Central Coast, will benefit sooner.”
