Repairs made to walking track in national park
A section of the coastal walking track in Bouddi National Park was closed on Wednesday and Thursday last week to enable the National Parks and Wildlife Service to upgrade the track.
Regional director Ms Kylie Yeend said the project would significantly improve safety and reduce erosion.
"Helicopters brought in building materials for the upgrade on a section of the track between Putty Beach and Maitland Bay," she said.
"The track is subject to erosion from the coastal environment, weather impacts and pedestrian usage, and these works will improve its longevity and assist with future maintenance.
"Bouddi coastal walking track, in its entirety, stretches from Putty Beach to MacMasters Beach and is one of the most popular on the Central Coast.
"There are about 200,000 visitors each year and the track showcases a stunning array of bushland, rock formations and ocean vistas."
Ms Yeend said anyone planning to visit a national park should check www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au for updates and alerts on park closures before leaving home.
Visitors are reminded of Covid-19 guidelines and ensure social distancing rules are followed.
