FEEDBACK CLOSING ON WARNERVALE LINK ROAD PROJECT
6th Feb 2018

The community is reminded to have a say on the proposed Warnervale Link Road which would link the residential growth area of Warnervale to the administrative and commercial precincts of Wyong and Tuggerah.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Scot MacDonald MLC said feedback on the proposal is invited until next Wednesday February 14th to allow Roads and Maritime Services to understand issues and minimise potential impacts.

“The Central Coast Regional Plan 2036 has identified Warnervale as a regional growth centre and it is anticipated there will be around 75,500 additional people living in the area by 2036 so it is essential planning starts now to cater for future growth.

“As such, Roads and Maritime is investigating the feasibility of providing a link road between Wyong and Warnervale.

“Part of the proposal includes investigating a new 2.3 kilometre two lane link road between Pacific Highway at Wyong and Albert Warner Drive at Warnervale including a bridge across Porters Creek Wetland.”

“Investigations are also being carried out for the future widening of the Pacific Highway to two lanes in each direction between Cutler Drive and Amy Close as well as upgrading the Britannia Drive intersection to traffic lights. This includes replacing the bridge across the railway with a longer, wider and higher bridge.”

“Roads and Maritime is also considering the inclusion of a shared pedestrian and cycle path on the western side of the roads from Cutler Drive to Lakes Anglican Grammar, including connections to Amy Close.”

“The proposed future link could support growth and productivity at Warnervale and Wyong, improve access to public transport and encourage the use of active transport as well as reduce delays on the M1 Pacific Motorway for long distance traffic and freight.”

Feedback on the proposal is invited until Wednesday 14 February and will be considered when planning for the future link.
