Planning is now underway on repairs to the Ourimbah WWI Memorial, an important heritage structure, as part of an accessibility upgrade to the wider railway station precinct.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said addition funding for the repair and restoration work had been secured, following a multi-million-dollar accessibility upgrade for Ourimbah Station.
“The WWI Memorial at Ourimbah includes a monument and memorial garden, and I know it is historically and culturally significant for the community,” Mr Crouch said.
“Transport for NSW has been liaising with the Ourimbah RSL Sub Branch and the team will also work with specialist advisors to decide the scope of works for this repair and restoration work.
“The WWI Memorial is an important piece of the Central Coast’s history which is why we should do everything possible to ensure it is protected.”
Further information on the Memorial repair and restoration works will be provided to the community once early investigations are complete.
The Ourimbah Station Upgrade has been delivered as part of the NSW Government’s Transport Access Program, an initiative to provide a better experience for public transport customers by delivering accessible infrastructure.
