Road maintenance and construction are part of the essential services Central Coast Council is continuing to deliver during COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and one of the major projects underway is an upgrade of the intersection of Bryant Drive and Lake Road, Tuggerah.

The $1.9million project will improve access to Tuggerah Station and the Central Coast Regional Sporting and Recreation Complex and increase vehicle and pedestrian safety.

Council Director Roads Transport Drainage and Waste, Boris Bolgoff said the works would deliver significant improvements to the high-traffic location.

"This project also includes the provision of a pedestrian facility in Bryant Drive, and construction of new footpaths that will link to existing footpaths," Mr Bolgoff said.

"Tuggerah Station and surrounds is an important and busy location, particularly for the many community members who commute.

"The impressive new Central Coast Regional Sporting and Recreation Complex has made this location even more popular.

"The works we are undertaking will make it easier to access these important facilities."

Mayor Lisa Matthews said this upgrade was one of many road maintenance and construction projects Council is delivering during this difficult time.

"COVID-19 has changed our lives in unimaginable ways but Council has been resolute in our commitment to delivering essential services for our community and this includes a host of large and small road projects," Mayor Matthews said.

"These works will greatly assist our large sporting community in travelling to our fantastic new Regional Sporting and Recreation Complex once sporting events can resume.

"Tuggerah Station is also used regularly by many members of our community - the upgrade of the intersection will ensure we can accommodate vehicle and pedestrian demand now and into the future."

Partial road closures will be in place during works - Bryant Drive, from the Super Centre entrance to Tuggerah Station carpark, and Lake Road, from Bryant Drive to the Central Coast Regional Sporting Complex.

Traffic control will be in place and vehicles and pedestrians able to pass through under direction. Emergency vehicles will have access at all times.

This project is expected to be completed by mid-August 2020, weather and circumstances permitting.
