Central Coast Council begins final roadworks at The Entrance
CENTRAL Coast Council has started the final stage of work to complete the makeover of a popular road at The Entrance.
Bay Road is used by many as an alternative route to and from The Entrance town centre and is in desperate need of repair.
Council's Construction Section Manager, Mr Stuart Baverstock, said this is the second and final stage of a $3.5 million upgrade to Bay Road.
"This stage of works will cost $1.9 million and will continue on from where we left off last year - just north of Richard Street to the Dening Street intersection," Mr Baverstock said.
"Motorists will notice more than a smoother surface to drive on, we are also improving the drainage system as well, as there has been flooding problems in the past.
"As well as improving the road surface in Bay Road, we are extending it to include the intersection of Dening Street as well as part of Dening and Fairport Avenue."
Work is expected to be finished in October.
Council's Administrator, Mr Ian Reynolds, said Council is getting on with the job of delivering services the community need, want and value.
"We know residents want better roads and we have a plan in place to deliver," Mr Reynolds said.
"Next financial year there is a strong focus on key community priorities with more than $150 million dedicated to improving our road and drainage networks, including Hastings Road Terrigal, Goobarabah Close Lake Haven, The Ridgeway Lisarow and Bligh Close Tumbi Umbi, to name a few."
Other major road projects happening around the Central Coast at the moment include: Killarney Vale - Norton Avenue, Norah Head - Maitland Street, Palmdale - Palmdale Road, Saratoga - Davistown Road, Wamberal - Dover Road, West Gosford - Faunce Street West
