Mutu St upgrade was needed
I wish to take this opportunity to rebuff comments made by Brian Raffa, Woy Woy, (Forum, Peninsula News, 1 June 2020) in relation to the upgrading of Mutu St, Woy Woy.
Firstly, I would like to point out that the majority of funding came from the Federal Government granted to Central Coast Council for use to improve drainage and roadworks on the Woy Woy Peninsula.
This small street, which is only 110 metres long, has only had potholes filled with bitumen for the past 30 years.
Businesses in that street employ about 200 people.
Rates paid by business owners are three times more than residential rates.
Residents dropping merchandise to the Salvation Army op shop were being fined for illegal parking because there were no defined parking spaces.
There were more than 250 pothole patches on the road before it was upgraded.
I would like to thank our Federal Member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks, for this funding and those in Council who approved the works.
