Central Coast Council Water and Sewer has announced that construction will commence on the installation of a new sewer main in Gosford.

The council said that works will take place between Shortland Street, Gosford and Frederick Street Point Fredrick. 

Director for Central Coast Council Water and Sewer, Jamie Loader, said construction is due to commence in late May 2024, with works expected to be completed by mid-July 2024 – weather permitting. 

“Council crews have worked closely with Transport for NSW to ensure these works will cause the least amount of disruption to the Gosford community. We know Henry Parry Drive is a high traffic zone and for this reason, works will occur outside of busy travel times. 

“Whilst we have taken steps to minimise the impact of these works, I encourage our community to allow extra travel time when travelling through Gosford during this stage of the project and thank them for their patience as we get these essential works completed.” 

The works are expected to generate construction noise which may impact residents who live in close proximity to the project. Noisy works will be planned, where possible, within daytime hours and the early evening. 

Central Coast Council Administrator, Rik Hart, said that the project will help support the revitalisation of Gosford City Centre as the capital of a healthy, prosperous and connected Central Coast.

“The work we are doing now will ensure we have a reliable water and sewer service for years to come to support the expected growth across the region.”

Works will be carried out between 9:30am–2:30pm Monday to Friday and 8pm–5am Sunday to Thursday. Traffic controls will be in place during the work times. 

The projects are funded with $42.5 million through the New South Wales Government’s Housing Acceleration Fund and a further $4.6 million through the Accelerated Infrastructure Fund.
