The highly popular Bouddi Coastal Walk stretching from Putty Beach to MacMasters Beach will undergo an upgrade, thanks to $1.4 million from the NSW Government’s Improving Access to National Parks program.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the eight kilometre track features spectacular ocean views.
“Bouddi National Park is one of our region’s most visited open spaces thanks to its spectacular views and beautiful beaches,” Mr Crouch said.
“Parts of the Bouddi Coastal Walk are very exposed to rain and wind conditions, and due to high pedestrian usage, this $1.4 million upgrade is needed to keep the track safe and user friendly.
“The work includes replacing sections of track including new stone work, steps, track re-surfacing, improved drainage and erosion, improving signage for the track route and removal of aged infrastructure.”
Mr Crouch said work would be undertaken by National Parks and Wildlife Service staff as well as contractors.
“Some initial work has already begun, including a helicopter flying in construction materials to remote sections of the track,” Mr Crouch said.
“The National Parks and Wildlife Service expects the eight kilometre upgrade to be completed in four stages over three years.”
