Liberals promise $22M in road upgrades
Almost $22 million was committed to upgrading Peninsula roads when Prime Minister Scott Morrison visited the Central Coast on Sunday, May 5.
It includes a $16.5 million upgrade of the Rawson Rd intersection at Woy Woy.
Other roads earmarked around the Peninsula were Shelly Beach Rd in Empire Bay; Springwood St in Ettalong; Gem Rd in Pearl Beach; St Huberts Island Bridge; Glenrock Pde in Tascott and Veron Rd, Lone Pine Ave, Ocean Beach Rd, and Mutu Rd in Woy Woy
Mr Morrison said the road package would prioritise improvements that would help address congestion and increase safety.
Federal Member for Robertson Lucy Wicks MP said she had worked with the Central Coast Council to prioritise upgrades and remove the road maintenance backlog.
"In 2017 I launched a Local Roads Petition to pinpoint the local roads which were of most concern to Central Coast residents and the feedback I received was incredible," Ms Wicks said
"We wouldn't have been able to secure this commitment without the input of those local residents and I look forward as part of a re-elected Morrison Government to delivering $70 million to fix some of the worst roads on the Central Coast.
"Locals can look forward to a $16.5 million upgrade of the Rawson Rd intersection at Woy Woy meaning almost $22 million will be allocated to local Peninsula roads."
