National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will be repairing more than three kilometres of roads within Munmorah State Conservation Area.

NPWS Central Coast Area Manager, Steve Atkins, said the project would involve resealing sections of Birdie Beach Dr, Blue Wren Dr and Campbell Dr to improve access to Frazer and Birdie beaches, Snapper Point and Freemans Camping Area.

“Construction works are expected to commence in the first week of May and will take about four weeks to complete, weather permitting.

“Frazer Beach Rd will be closed for one or two days and Snapper Point Rd will be closed for four days during the construction work period and traffic control will be in place along Birdie Beach Dr, Blue Wren Dr and Campbell Dr.

“NPWS will schedule mid-week road closures, wherever possible, to minimise disruptions for visitors to beaches and camping areas.

“Signage will be installed at entry points to Munmorah State Conservation Area and visitors are encouraged to check the NPWS website for updates before leaving home,” Atkins said.

Munmorah State Conservation Area is perched on 12km of spectacular coastline and offers panoramic views of the Tuggerah Lakes system.

The conservation area protects one of the few remaining areas of littoral rainforest and is home to more than 150 bird species, including the endangered little tern and the vulnerable sooty oystercatcher.

This road improvement project is funded under the NPWS Infrastructure Replacement Program.
