Council media release praises Morrison government

Central Coast Council has issued a joint media release which praises the Morrison Government for its "commitment to progress critical infrastructure projects across the country".

In the release, Federal Minister for Urban Infrastructure Mr Paul Fletcher said the project would help improve travel times and increase road and pedestrian safety.

"The Morrison Government is getting on with delivering infrastructure projects that improve congestion and safety for commuters across Australia, making it easier for them to move around our capital cities and ensuring they get home quickly and safely."

The purpose of the release was to invite feedback on plans to upgrade the intersection at Ocean Beach and Rawson Rds, Woy Woy, with a grant from the Federal Urban Congestion Fund.

Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks said community members should review the plans and have their say.

"We know how important roads upgrades are on the Peninsula and the Rawson Rd and Ocean Beach Rd intersection is a major problem during peak traffic times," Mrs Wicks said.

"Projects like this, which will improve traffic flow and safety at intersections that have become bottlenecks, are vital for a growing region such as the Central Coast."

Central Coast Council infrastructure director Mr Boris Bolgoff, said the plan was to replace the existing single-lane roundabout with a signalised intersection.

"Traffic delays in the area will improve immediately after completion of the project in 2026.

"We estimate a 66 per cent improvement, with the average maximum vehicle queue length reduced by over 360 metres."

Council administrator Mr Rik Hart said an intersection upgrade at this busy location had been identified as necessary.

"Council is liaising directly with the owners of properties located adjacent to the intersection which may be impacted by the works, and I encourage all community members to have their say on this major upgrade," Mr Hart said.

Construction is expected to start in mid-2024 and finish by mid-2026.

Plans for the $32.56 million project and the opportunity feedback is available at the council website
