National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is undertaking works to repair more than 3 kilometres of roads within Munmorah State Conservation Area.
NPWS Central Coast Area Manager Steve Atkins said the project will involve resealing sections of Birdie Beach Drive, Blue Wren Drive and Campbell Drive to improve access to the popular Frazer and Birdie beaches, Snapper Point and Freemans Camping Area.
“Construction works are expected to commence in the first week of May 2021 and will take approximately four weeks to complete, weather permitting.
“Frazer Beach Road will be closed for 1-2 days and Snapper Point Road will be closed for 4 days during the construction work period and traffic control will be in place along Birdie Beach Drive, Blue Wren Drive and Campbell Drive.
“NPWS will schedule mid-week road closures, wherever possible, to minimise disruptions for visitors accessing beaches and camping areas.
“Signage will be installed at entry points to Munmorah State Conservation Area and visitors are encouraged to check the NPWS website for updates before leaving home,” said Mr Atkins.
Munmorah State Conservation Area is perched on 12 kilometres of spectacular coastline and offers panoramic views of the Tuggerah Lakes system.
The conservation area protects one of the few remaining areas of littoral rainforest and is home to more than 150 bird species, including the endangered little tern and the vulnerable sooty oystercatcher.
This road improvement project is funded under the NPWS Infrastructure Replacement Program.
