Lake Munmorah residents and school communities are now enjoying the convenience of a new 50 space carpark in front of Lake Munmorah High School on Carters Road.

The project provides much needed parking spaces for this busy strip of road and services four nearby schools, where lack of parking and traffic congestion have previously been an issue.

Central Coast Council completed the project with $900,000 in funding from the Australian Government through the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI Program).

Council Director Infrastructure Services, Boris Bolgoff said the carpark is an important amenity for the growing Lake Munmorah community.

"The new 50 space carpark includes two accessible spaces and will certainly be well utilised by the school communities," Mr Bolgoff said.

"Parking and traffic management can be a challenge at this busy education precinct and we have completed improvements that will help with congestion during the school drop-off/pick-up time periods.

"New footpaths have also been completed around the carpark to link it to the designated crossing points and a new pedestrian crossing."

Federal Member for Shortland, Pat Conroy said he was very pleased to see the carpark project completed.

"Parking and traffic congestion on Carters Road has been a major issue for a long time now particularly during school pick-up and drop-off times, and I hope this new carpark will held to address this issue.

"I look forward to seeing it utilised by the local school communities as well as the broader Lake Munmorah community."

Council Administrator, Rik Hart said the new carpark and associated works will deliver benefits that have long been sought by the schools.

"Completion of this community-driven project will be welcome news for the Lake Munmorah community, particularly those who have children who attend the schools in the area on Carters Road," Mr Hart said.
