Del Monte Place, Copacabana Road Upgrade
Consultation for this project has now concluded.

Project overview

Central Coast Council is planning a major upgrade of a 1,500 metre section of Del Monte Place, Copacabana from Segura Street to Oceano Street and recently sought the communities feedback.

The project will include construction of a new footpath and will provide substantially improved access to the Winney Bay Reserve for motorists and pedestrians.

Preparation works for Stage One – involving vegetation removal and relocation of a water main – are scheduled to begin in April 2020 with the road construction planned for commencement early in the 2020-21 financial year.

The community was invited to view the concept plans, read the Frequently Asked Questions for the project, attend the drop-in information session and provide feedback on the project via the interactive map.

This project is funded by the Australian Government through the Urban Congestion Fund with a total project cost of $10 million.

Consultation Results

Council has reviewed all the feedback received during consultation and will consider the communities and ideas when preparing the detailed designs. 

The community is invited to view the detailed Consultation Report available in the Document Library. 

How was Del Monte Place identified as a priority project?

The Del Monte Pl upgrade project is part of the Central Coast Roads Package funded by the Australian Government through the Urban Congestion Fund with a total project cost of $10 million.

How wide will the footpath be?

A 1.5m footpath has been provided on one side of the road. The 1.5m width will minimise impacts on the ability to maintain reasonable vehicle access to properties that have steep vehicle access and to minimise works within private property.

What vehicle parking will be provided as part of the road upgrade?

Formalised parking on the road verge(between kerb and boundary) will be provided by concrete parking bays along one side of the road.

When will construction commence?

Enabling works (tree removals etc) are due to begin in April, followed by the watermain relocation for the full length of the project. The first stage of road construction works is due to begin early in the 2020/21 financial year.

Preparation works for Stage One – involving vegetation removal and relocation of a water main – are scheduled to begin in April 2020 with the road construction planned for commencement early in the 2020-21 financial year.

When will the upgrade be complete?

Construction of the full length of the upgrade project, between Segura Street and Oceano Street, is expected to be completed by the end of the 2023/24 financial year.

How many stages are involved in the project and when will they be happening?

There will be 3 stages of construction, beginning at the Segura Street end of the project in the 2020/21 financial year, and continuing sequentially up the hill to complete at Oceano Street by the end of the 2023/24 financial year.

How many trees will be removed to complete the road upgrade?

Tree removal required for the project will be kept to a minimum. The current count suggest 92 trees and shrubs will be removed over the 1500m length of the project.

Will the trees be replanted?

Yes. Two native trees of a similar species will be replanted at a nearby location for every tree that is removed during the project.
