Open space and footpath projects continue

Central Coast Council has announced it is continuing with five open space projects and two footpath projects around the Peninsula.

The open space and recreation works include a softfall resurfacing to the local playground at Peninsula Recreation Precinct at Umina, and a boat ramp upgrade at Correa Bay, Woy Woy.

There will be upgrades to local playgrounds at Empire Bay Tennis Courts, at Lentara Ave and at Brisbane Ave in Umina;

Road work will include kerb ramps and a footpath on Park Rd, Woy Woy, and a footpath reconstruction on Ocean Beach Rd, Woy Woy.

Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said the continuation of these works were in the best interest of community members and the local economy.

"We are committed to bettering the lives of our community and creating a smart, green and liveable region with a shared sense of belonging and responsibility," she said.

"We know many people are doing it tough during this time and this is one-way Council is able to help keep locals, Council workers and contractors employed, as well as to positively contribute to our economy."

Council chief executive Mr Gary Murphy said: "Council is focused on the continued delivery of the essential services needed to support our community now, but we are also continuing with essential works to cater for the future needs of our community when life returns to normal.

"Important maintenance work and projects continue including upgrades to open space and recreation infrastructure, road maintenance and construction, and water and sewer maintenance and upgrades.

"Council is also continuing with established projects... with adjustments made to comply with the latest NSW Health and Government requirements around social distancing and keeping our staff and community safe."
