Carpark studies expected soon
Two studies on a proposed upgrade of the Woy Woy Commuter Car Park are expected to be presented to council in the next few months.
Gosford Council's director of City Services Mr Stephen Glen said it was anticipated that the two studies together with a report on the proposed upgrade would be provided to council "early in the second half of 2007".
Cr Chris Holstein raised the issue of the report on April 3.
"The Central Coast Action Plan of 2002 identified the expansion of commuter carparks at Woy Woy to start by 2004 and Gosford after 2004," Cr Holstein said.
"Since the July 2006 update, a recent memo said the Woy Woy report is close to completion.
"Can the Director advise a more definite date for the presentation after three years?"
In two replies, one on April 19 and another on May 31, Mr Glen said the development of the Commuter Carpark was reported to council in the middle of last year.
"Since that time two studies dealing with the evaluation of construction alternatives and traffic flow in and around the carpark site have been completed," Mr Glen said.
"The results of these studies are currently with the Ministry of Transport and the process of negotiating a funding arrangement for detailed design and construction of the first stage of the expansion to the Woy Woy Commuter Carpark is being evaluated.
"It is anticipated that the two studies together with a report on the proposed upgrade will be provided to Council early in the second half of 2007."
