It has been confirmed construction of the Woy Woy Woy wharf will continue despite the current financial crisis and suspension of Central Coast Council.

With work commencing in August, the $5.6M wharf redevelopment was touted to be the largest wharf project ever undertaken by the Council.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Adam Crouch, said the Council had confirmed to him works will resume.

“The Wharf project will improve accessibility for local residents to our beautiful beaches and waterways,” Crouch said.

The new pontoon wharf is planned to rise with the tide to reduce disruption and improve disability access, capable of accommodating 35-metre vessels up to 250 tonnes.

A dedicated fishing area on the boardwalk, new smart seating benches, banner poles, and landscaping will also be included in the redevelopment.
