New missing link pathway to connect Davistown and Kincumber
The project is funded through the Australian Government's Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI Program) and will be the first stage in completing an important 'missing link' to connect Davistown and Kincumber.
Council Director Infrastructure Services, Boris Bolgoff said Stage 1 works will see a 320 metre section of the shared pathway completed in the 2020-21 financial year.
"Our community has requested this project which will deliver a key missing link of the NSW Coastline Cycleway," Mr Bolgoff said.
"This project aligns with Council's commitment to deliver pathways that complete missing links and improve connections that offer healthy and environmentally friendly transport options.
"Stage 1 works will focus on a 320 metre section of shared pathway along Malinya Avenue, Davistown from Coomal Avenue towards Henderson Road.
"Subject to securing grant funding, Stage 2 works will take place in 2021-22 and see the new section of shared pathway span 585 metres to Henderson Road and will complete the link between Davistown and Kincumber."
Council Administrator, Dick Persson AM said the project would deliver on key objectives outlined in the Central Coast Bike Plan and Central Coast Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan (PAMP).
"The Central Coast is hard to beat for walking and cycling and this new section of shared pathway will complete an important 'missing link' and is sure to be popular with both locals and visitors," Mr Persson said.
Federal Member for Robertson Lucy Wicks MP said that she is thrilled to see this important project for the Davistown community underway.
"The Davistown Residents association have been fighting to make this safety upgrade a reality with over 1,300 signatures on their petition for a shared pathway along Mailinya Road," Ms Wicks said.
"I am proud to be part of a government that is investing in important community infrastructure to help the Central Coast economy recover after COVID-19."
Stage 1 of the project is funded by the Australian Government with $911,892 from the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI Program). Future stages of the project are dependent on securing additional grant funding.
