Major infrastructure upgrades for both drainage and roads continue across the northern suburbs of the central coast at Jilliby, Gwandalan and Gorokan.
These upgrades are part of the Council’s Operational Plan for 2017-2018, which includes the replacement of various sewer rising mains, and draining pumps for wastewater treatment plants, as well as the current road and drainage works being undertaken.
Drainage upgrades at Coorabin St, Gorokan, are almost complete with the installation of a new drainage line and street drainage complemented by road renewal works and kerb and guttering — an overall investment of more than $750,000.
Crews will now focus their attention on upgrade works at Gascoigne Road, Gorokan, with the installation of a new drainage system in addition to road renewal and kerb and gutter works from Leichhardt Road to Kennedy Street.
Stabilising, sealing and asphalting works were recently completed on a 1km section of Dicksons Road, Jilliby, as part of a systematic renewal program for the road.
A section of Kanangra Drive, Gwandalan — from Summerland Road to Parraweena Road — also underwent asphalt renewal valued at $250,000.
Collectively, these projects equate to a $1.9 million investment in roads across Jilliby, Gwandalan and Gorokan.
