Work on the construction of an additional level at the Wilson Road Carpark is nearing completion, with the staged re-opening of the facility set to begin today.
The project is set to provide the Terrigal CBD with 110 extra parking spaces.
The $2.3 million project also includes the installation of a lift within the carpark, CCTV and the provision of additional disabled spaces on each floor – enhancing the facility’s overall accessibility.
On Monday, Council revealed the upgrade is scheduled to be completed by Tuesday 15 August, with a staged re-opening to commence today, weather permitting.
Council Administrator Ian Reynolds said an efficient program of works had assisted the successful completion of this major infrastructure upgrade.
“Despite the impacts of some inclement weather during the construction period, we have worked closely with our contractor to ensure the efficient completion of this project,” said Mr Reynolds.
“We’re continuing to invest in Terrigal as one of the state’s premier tourist destinations and infrastructure improvements such as this redevelopment will go a long way to supporting the ongoing growth of the area.
“The addition of these 110 car spaces has been carried out in conjunction with upgrade works on the Scenic Highway – improving the overall connectivity and access to the town centre,” said Mr Reynolds.
Group Leader of Assets, Infrastructure and Business, Mr Mike Dowling, said that the upgrade of the Wilson Road Carpark was part of wider investment into the Terrigal region.
“This is an exciting time for Terrigal as it continues to grow in popularity, with significant investment in and around the area,” said Mr Dowling.
“We’re continuing to work on catering for the needs of the region to complement this growth and have plans to invest almost $2.2 million through improvements to the area’s pedestrian and traffic flow – thanks to the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund.
“Council will also be revitalising the Terrigal Lagoon Foreshore, with $825,000 invested into the redevelopment of the play space in the Rotary Park as well as the proposed construction of a skate park.”
“I would like to again extend my sincere thanks to the Terrigal community for their patience and understanding during the upgrade of the Wilson Road Carpark.”
