A community campaign and a petition with over 1,500 signatures has resulted in a major upgrade for a stretch of Oceano St at Copacabana.

The $9M project saw the roadway, between Segura St and Del Monte Pl, receive safety and access improvement.

Funded with $6M through the Federal Government’s Investment Road and Rail Program and $3M from Central Coast Council, the major work was delivered by Council.

Member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks, said motorists, pedestrians and cyclists would be the big winners.

“The Federal Government has also funded the upgrade of Del Monte Pl, which is another significant road in Copacabana,” Wicks said.

“Upgrading local roads is consistently one of the biggest issues raised with me, that’s why the Government is investing in some of our worst local road.

Council’s Director Infrastructure Services, Boris Bolgoff, said the upgraded section of Oceano St forms part of a key access road for Copacabana.

“This major upgrade saw the instalment of 1.3km of road pavement, 1.8km of drainage infrastructure and 1.8km of footpath,” Bolgoff said.

“We’ve installed a seven-metre-wide road pavement as part of this major upgrade, which has expanded what was a narrow stretch of road with steep topography.

“The project also included new street drainage, kerb and gutter, retaining walls and on the western side of road we’ve built a 1.5m-wide footpath for the full length of the upgrade.”
