Planning for new Warnervale Link Road under way
22 July 2015
Central Coast road users are set to benefit as planning progresses for a future Warnervale Link road between the Pacific Highway at Watanobbi and Sparks Road at Warnervale.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Scot MacDonald MLC, said today “The NSW Government has allocated $500,000 this financial year to plan for the vital direct connection between Wyong town centre and the rapidly growing developments around Warnervale.”
“Roads and Maritime Services will build on the work carried out by Wyong Shire Council and continue investigations into a future road between the roundabout at the Pacific Highway and Britannia Drive at Watanobbi and Sparks Road at Warnervale.”
“The investigations will inform the future concept design of the road which is expected to improve traffic flow, reduce congestion and improve connections to the Pacific Highway,” Mr MacDonald said.
“Other key benefits of a future road would also include safety improvements for pedestrian and cyclists and better public transport access and amenities.”
“Roads and Maritime will work with the community and stakeholders including Wyong Council during the planning process,” Mr MacDonald said.
“The work would complement the $22 million Sparks Road upgrade and new intersection at Woongarrah completed in February this year.
“The upgrade provided two lanes in each direction on Sparks Road between Virginia and Hiawatha Roads and two right turn lanes into Mary MacKillop Drive at the Minnesota Road intersection to ease congestion during peak periods,” Mr MacDonald said.
