The NSW Government’s $387 million commitment to upgrade Central Coast Highway continues to move ahead, with the community now invited to review plans for the proposed Central Coast Highway and Tumbi Road intersection upgrade.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said Central Coast Highway is used by about 26,500 motorists every day, with an upgrade required to prepare the road for future growth.
“In May this year we engaged WSP Australia Pty Ltd to develop the full design, as previous community feedback requested that the Tumbi Road intersection be fast-tracked,” Mr Crouch said.
“During peak hour, motorists currently experience nine-minute delays at the existing Central Coast Highway and Tumbi Road roundabout.”
Mr Crouch said the concept design and Review of Environment Factors (REF) is now publicly available and open for comment.
“I am inviting the community to view the proposal, which involves replacing the roundabout with new traffic lights as well as widening the intersection to reduce queuing and improve traffic flow, and provide feedback directly to Transport for NSW,” Mr Crouch said.
“Feedback will be accepted until 5pm on Tuesday 2 November, so I encourage all residents and stakeholders to have a say.
“Upgrading this incredibly busy intersection will not be easy but it is an incredibly important project, and we are not going to shy away from the hard work.”
To view the concept design, REF and for more information on the upgrade, go to: nswroads.work/cch.
Transport for NSW will also host an online information session in the coming weeks where the community and stakeholders can learn more about the upgrade and ask the project team questions. The community will be informed of the date and time via the project webpage and on social media.
