Road restoration works underway at Kincumba Mountain Reserve

Date

Wednesday, 1 December 2021

Release

Council is undertaking embankment stabilisation work at Kincumba Mountain to restore road access through this popular reserve.  Up until 20 December 2021, Island View Drive remains closed for vehicle access, and will also be closed to cyclists and pedestrians during this period.  


Alternate access routes are available to the Reserve for pedestrians and cyclists via Beatties Road (Green Point), Woorara Parade (Green Point) and Bronzwing Drive (Erina) with additional access points for pedestrian from Sandringham Close (Terrigal) and Joalah Road (Kincumber). 


The toilet facilities at the top of Rumbalara Reserve will be closed during this time, due to inability of cleaning vehicles having access to that area while these works are undertaken. 


We thank our community for their patience and look forward to re-establishing road access so everyone can enjoy one of our region’s best natural assets again. 


Background


The Central Coast experienced significantly heavy rain in March 2021, which impacted a number of roads across the region.  Island View Drive at Kincumba Mountain Reserve sustained damage to a large section of the road.  Over 15m of the embankment that supports the road was impacted by a slip failure and several section of the road pavement was destroyed.  


Whilst the reserve remained open for pedestrians and cyclist, vehicle access on Island View Drive was not possible.  Council has since progressed investigations and engaged Geotechnical experts to design the required restoration work.  These works will see substantial ground anchors and a structural wall to be constructed, and the damaged sections of pavement repaired.
