Roadworks to be completed over next five years

Roadworks at Woy Woy, Empire Bay, Umina, Pearl Beach and Blackwall will be completed by 2025 under a $70 million Federal roads package.

Councillors approved 29 road projects across the region at the November 25 meeting.

The money was pledged by the Federal government in the lead-up to this year's election.

There will be a $16.5 million upgrade of the intersection at Ocean Beach and Rawson Rds at Woy Woy, to be completed by 2024.

Mutu St, Woy Woy, will get a $725,000 road and drainage upgrade, expected to be finished this financial year.

It will include pavement reconstruction, kerb and gutter, footpath, street drainage and parking improvements from Rawson Rd to Ocean Beach Rd.

A road and drainage upgrade, costing just over $3 million, is expected to start in 2021 along Shelly Beach Rd, Empire Bay, with pavement reconstruction, kerb and gutter, footpath and street drainage from Kendall Rd to Sher Close.

St Huberts Island bridge will undergo pedestrian safety improvements and security, costing $900,000 and expected to be finished this financial year.

Just over $2 million will go towards an upgrade of drainage at Everglades Catchment at Umina Beach, with work starting this financial year and finishing by 2023.

The work will take place on the drainage network from the Everglades main open drain to Carpenter St and Glenn St, then on to Connex Rd and ending up at Lovell Rd.

Gem Rd at Pearl Beach will also get a drainage and road upgrade in 2020-21 from Crystal Ave to the end of the road.

Road and drainage improvements costing $2.7 million will go towards Springwood St, Blackwall, between Gallipoli Ave to Commonwealth Ave.

These works are expected to be completed by 2022-23.

Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said she was pleased to see the government deliver on its promise to fund local road upgrades on the Coast.

"This funding injection from the Federal Government will allow Council to deliver projects that the community has identified as priorities," Cr Matthews said.
