Lane between surf clubs to be primarily for pedestrians

A narrow lane which connects Umina Beach Surf Life Saving Club at Ocean Beach Rd with Ocean Beach Surf Life Saving Club at Trafalgar Ave will become primarily a pedestrian thoroughfare, with changes costing $327,528.
The lane, which is a continuation of The Esplanade, will become a shared zone with the installation of seating, signage and landscaping.
The shared zone was proposed by the Umina Community Group.
Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said: “The Umina Beach community have been after improvements to this area for some time.
“In successfully securing this grant, Council is able to create a safer, more accessible zone to be enjoyed by the community.”
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Mr Adam Crouch said Central Coast Council would receive $327,528 from the NSW Government’s Streets as Shared Spaces program.
“The pandemic has prompted the NSW Government to invest in new and improved pedestrian and active transport links that facilitate social distancing,” Mr Crouch said.
