Ryans Rd construction starts after two-month delay
The 37-week reconstruction of Ryans Rd, Umina, has started after a two-month delay.
Central Coast Council has stated that it delayed the start date from November to January to avoid resident disruption over the festive season.
"The project remains on track for completion by June 30," according to the Council's online "roads and drainage projects mapping tool".
The full length of Ryans Rd will be reconstructed as part of this project including street drainage, kerb and gutter, footpath, road pavement works and resurfacing of the road, the web page stated.
The work is part of a $1.65 million pledge secured during the 2016 federal election campaign by Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks.
The funding was approved for upgrades to Ryans Rd and David Rd in Booker Bay.
Council committed an additional $1 million to complete the works which consisted of essential upgrades to drainage, kerbing, guttering and footpaths.
"The upgrades will improve safety for both motorists and pedestrians, linking pedestrian and bus facilities to existing services and offering local residents quality road infrastructure," Council wrote in a statement responding to questions from Peninsula News.
