Intersection upgrades to proceed following State Budget

Intersection upgrades in Blackwall Rd and a women's sports program at PCYC Umina are two projects on the Peninsula that will proceed as a result of the State Budget on June 21.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Mr Adam Crouch said: "This budget will provide substantial support to our region with a strong focus on cost-of-living support for families and continued delivery of infrastructure.

"That's why the Budget provides a range of support measures like the $150 Back-to-School Voucher, the $250 Regional Apprentice and Uni Travel Card, toll relief for Central Coast commuters, expanded access to childcare and the Energy Bill Buster Program."

The Budget included $7 million to commence construction at Blackwall Rd and McMasters Rd, as well as $80,000 to support PCYC Umina's Empowering Women and Girls health through participation in sport program.

Other spending included $30.2 million over two years to establish the Greater Cities Commission with its expanded remit over the Six Cities, including $20.2 million "to undertake critical planning priorities on the Central Coast".

Upgrades to social housing across the Central Coast were allocated $5.84 million, while $660,000 was provided "to develop a new social housing project".

A commitment of $500 million was made for the first step in the Northern Corridor, "bringing faster rail a step closer," said Mr Crouch.

The delivery of the new Intercity train fleet would continue with the allocation of $999 million.

Central Coast Council would be supported with local road maintenance, from a pool of $271 million in Local Community Grants.

Other Budget provisions affecting the Coast included a boost to fire management in national parks through a $598 million investment, delivering 250 permanent jobs and critical infrastructure upgrades.

An additional $93.7 million was also provided to deliver the Climate Change Adaptation Strategy to prepare for the impacts of climate change and capture new investment opportunities.
