$40 MILLION FOR CENTRAL COAST ROADS 

An Albanese Labor Government will invest $40 million to upgrade roads across the Central Coast. 

The Coast has some of the worst roads in NSW, and they need proper investment for the future. 

According to a recent NRMA report, the Central Coast had the second highest number of callouts to fix tyres and wheels in the state, missing out on the top spot by just one call. 

After recent weather events, there are also more potholes and hazards on local roads than there have been previously.  

The Central Coast deserves better roads to improve safety, ease congestion, and reduce the cost of wear and tear on cars. 

Under a future Labor Government, people on the Central Coast will be able to get around quicker and safer.  

The Central Coast deserves better roads and Labor will deliver.  

Quotes attributable to Emma McBride:  

“People on the Central Coast have been crying out for proper road investment for years. We have people here who are avoiding driving at night or who are taking a different route to work because of potholes and other hazards. This investment will go a long way towards improving safety for motorists across the Coast.” 

Quotes attributable to Dr. Gordon Reid: 
 
“Our roads have been neglected for far too long and they are in desperate need of an upgrade. I’m proud to say a future Labor Government is committed to improving roads on the Central Coast so locals can get around quicker and safer. This $40 million investment will also ease congestion and save locals from damaging their cars because of crater-size potholes on our roads.”
