Release

Central Coast Council has started construction of a new carpark on the existing grassed area in front of Lake Munmorah High School on Carters Road.

This project is funded by the Australian Government with $900,000 from the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI Program) and will service four local schools in the area and the growing Lake Munmorah community.

Council Director Infrastructure Services, Boris Bolgoff said the 50 space carpark, including two accessible spaces, will be an invaluable resource for the community, particularly those associated with the schools in Carters Road.

“Parking can be a challenge in the busy education precinct for the growing Lake Munmorah community and this new carpark will be welcome news,” Mr Bolgoff said.

“The carpark and associated traffic management works are expected to help with congestion and parking during the busy school drop-off/pick-up time periods.

“Traffic flow, particularly for school buses, is expected to improve when the carpark is completed.

“The project includes the construction of new footpaths around the carpark to link to the designated crossing points and a new pedestrian crossing.”

Council Administrator, Dick Persson AM said improvements to traffic congestion and additional parking will not only benefit the school community, but also residents and businesses operating from Carters Road.

“The community has been calling for works on Carters Road and it is great to be moving forward with projects such as this new carpark in Lake Munmorah,” Mr Persson said.
