The construction phase of the Penguin Foreshore Remediation and Upgrade Project has commenced with the successful tenderer, Fairbrother Pty Ltd. This project involves the remediation and protection of the beach and escarpment at the Penguin Foreshore.
Unfortunately, due to the complexity and number of construction components along the eastern end of the Penguin foreshore at Lions Parks, Surf Club Road will be closed for the entirety of the construction phase (to 30 March 2021). The Council apologises for any inconvenience caused by this disruption. Other areas of the Penguin foreshore will be closed in smaller sections during construction including parking bays along the northern side of Main Road. The Council will not be shutting down the entirety of the foreshore. We thank the local community for their patience and understanding during this time.
Central Coast Council were successful in obtaining funding for the $6.5m Penguin Foreshore Remediation and Upgrade Project under the Australian Government’s Community Development Grants program.
