Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch has today announced $2,938,600 has been awarded to Central Coast Council for design and construction of a Boardwalk and viewing platform at Terrigal, linking Terrigal Beach to The Haven around the rock-face.
This follows a month-long community campaign and online petition, which attracted 2,000 signatures from Central Coast residents.
Crouch said a new Boardwalk would improve access to the Terrigal foreshore for everyone.
“The current steep footpath over the headland prevents easy access to the Haven foreshore, especially for people with disability, parents with prams, and the elderly,” Mr Crouch said.
“Building a Boardwalk to connect the Beach to the Haven around the rock face will improve accessibility for locals and tourists alike.”
“Terrigal is one of the most popular tourism destinations on the Central Coast, and that’s why infrastructure like this new Boardwalk is needed.”
Mr Crouch thanked the local community for their support of the project.
“This project has been talked about in the local community for over two decades, and as a result of the State Liberal Government and Central Coast Council working together, we’re now able to deliver,” Mr Crouch said.
“Thank you to the small businesses and residents in Terrigal who have been so supportive of this project.”
“Last week in Parliament I presented the 2,000 signature petition to Deputy Premier John Barilaro, and I am really pleased that the State Liberal Government is providing over $2.9 million in funding.”
“As a result of the Government’s strong economic management, we are able to invest in local infrastructure just like this Boardwalk, and I will continue to fight to ensure the Central Coast gets its fair share.”
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro said the Boardwalk for Terrigal is one of 33 projects that will be funded in regional NSW as part of the first round of the Regional Growth Environment and Tourism Fund.
