First Chance to Comment on Central Coast Highway Upgrade

04 Jun 2020 roads

The community is invited to comment on the initial plans to upgrade the Central Coast Highway between Wamberal and Bateau Bay, which will improve travel times and safety for the 26,500 motorists who use this section each day.

Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said community feedback will be taken into account as the design and planning of the project continues to be developed.


“We know what a game changer this project will be for locals and visitors in and around the Central Coast,” Mr Toole said.


“This is the first look at the strategic designs for the upgrade, and we want feedback from the community to help us continue developing this upgrade.” 


Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the 3.8 kilometre upgrade would stretch from Tumbi Road to Bateau Bay Road.


“This is going to be a challenging project but the NSW Government is committed to upgrading Central Coast Highway to create a safer and more reliable journey for the 26,500 people who use it each day,” Mr Crouch said.


“We have committed $387 million to this project, which is the single biggest road investment in the Central Coast’s history.


“Due to the size of the project, widening the road to two lanes in both directions and upgrading the key intersections along the route will take place in stages, starting at Tumbi Road.


“I am inviting everyone in our community to comment on the proposed plans until Friday, 10 July and all feedback will be considered as the project progresses.”


The plans can be viewed on the project webpage at, together with details on how to provide comment to Transport for NSW.
