Community group welcomes shared zone grant

Umina Community Group has welcomed the announcement of a $325,000 grant to create shared zone providing pedestrians priority in The Esplanade between Ocean Beach Rd and Trafalgar Ave.

Community Group director Mr Tony Winch said he was pleased with the planned upgrades.

"Many in the community use The Esplanade on a daily basis, from walkers and runners to riders.

"The upgrade will provide them with a much safer and more pleasant pathway," Mr Winch said.

"This is especially true for the children and families heading to the primary school and the Umina Recreational Precinct."

Mr Winch said Central Coast Council had been supportive of the upgrade and worked closely with Transport for NSW and the State Government to acquire approvals and receive additional funding to complete the work.

"The project is a terrific example of community, Council and the State Government working together to target areas that will directly improve life on the Peninsula," Mr Winch said.

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch said the community had helped with ideas for improvements, with many asking for better pedestrian access and upgrades to amenities.

"Earlier this year, I called on our community to send in their ideas for improvements and activations.

"It was great to read so many different projects to make the Peninsula an even better place to live," Ms Tesch said.

She said the upgrades provided refreshed and useable pathways and promoted active and healthy living for all members of the community.
