The Member for Terrigal, Mr Adam Crouch, has announced that emergency dredging works on the Ettalong Channel started last week (June 25).

The NSW Government has committed to substantial emergency dredging of the Ettalong Channel to ensure it is safe and accessible for all waterway users,” said Mr Crouch.

According to him, this $660,000 project is anticipated to remove around 20,000 cubic meters of sand, which will clear the way for boats and ferry services.

The method and equipment being used for this work will achieve the best results and should keep the Channel open for longer. This will provide the opportunity for the Department of Industry Lands and Water and Central Coast Council to work together in developing a long-term dredging strategy,” added Mr Crouch.

Mr Crouch also said that the works were being funded through savings made on other projects in the region. “Savings from projects, such as The Entrance Rock Groyne project, which falls in the same Local Government Area as Ettalong, has meant the Department has been able to redirect funds for the emergency works.

The Central Coast Council has submitted an application for ‘Rescuing our Waterways’ funding, which is currently being assessed.
