Completed infrastructure enables ‘thousands of new jobs’

Infrastructure work at Mount Penang Parklands is complete

Infrastructure work at Mount Penang Parklands is officially complete, at a cost of $4M, improving the site for business and education tenants, while also unlocking the site to deliver thousands of new jobs in the future.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said the Hunter and Central Coast Development Corporation (HCCDC), a NSW Government agency, delivered the work.

“To date, over $4M has been spent at Kariong on upgraded roads, footpaths, sewer connections and water services,” Crouch said.

“The hundreds of students and parents who visit Mount Penang Parklands each day will see immediate benefits, with an improved public road into the site and a new street address for Kariong Mountains High School.

“HCCDC has worked hard to future proof the site’s infrastructure, and these recently completed works will further improve essential services for the 30 current business and education tenants.”

Crouch said the infrastructure works also enable the development of sections of land alongside Kangoo Rd and Central Coast Hwy.

“Two local companies, Borg Manufacturing and Stevens Group, have exciting plans for light industrial and commercial development that have potential to create over 3,000 jobs,” he said.

“The NSW Government wants to unlock the potential of Mount Penang Parklands by laying the groundwork, before inviting businesses to create job and investment opportunities for the Central Coast.”
