Central Coast Council and the NSW Government have today officially opened the newly redeveloped Terrigal BMX Track, the last piece of the Duffy’s Oval Recreation Precinct revitalisation project.
Works have included reshaping jumps, asphalting berms and laying a synthetic surface on dirt sections. The redevelopment has upgraded the track to BMX Australian competition standards, and has also made it more accessible and functional, particularly during wet weather.
Council Acting Director Community and Recreation Services, Phil Cantillon said the BMX upgrade has improved the riding experience of users and greatly enhanced the experience of Terrigal for our community and visitors.
“If you haven’t seen the changes, I recommend you pop over and have a look. Not only has the redevelopment made a safer and more functional space for all, but it now also provides a more competitive facility for Terrigal BMX Club to stage training, competitions and bid for State events, which in turn will boost the local economy.”
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said a $300,000 commitment from the NSW Government had made this project a reality.
“Not only has the project significantly improved the track for BMX enthusiasts and locals to enjoy, construction workers have been supported and the local economy has received a much-needed boost as we continue to recover from COVID-19,” Mr Crouch said.
Council Administrator Rik Hart said Council will continue delivering projects the community has asked for.
“Projects like this one are a great example of the NSW Government and Council working together to continue to deliver projects for the community that provide health and social benefits,” Mr Hart said.
The BMX track redevelopment has been funded by a $300,000 grant from the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
