Access to Forresters Beach has been improved with the construction of a new tiered staircase at the northern end of the beach.
Central Coast Council recently completed construction of the new staircase opposite Henrys Rd, while also undertaking an upgrade to existing emergency vehicular access.
Mayor, Jane Smith, said the project delivered on Council’s commitment to increase ease of access and enjoyment of the Coast’s waterways and foreshores for the community.
“The new pedestrian staircase allows our community to more easily enjoy one of our most beautiful and popular breaches,” Clr Smith said.
“The new and upgraded works also allow for shoreline vehicle access in the event of an emergency, with the new staircase being a welcome improvement to what was previously considered unsuitable access for pedestrians.
“Our community love and value our waterways and coastline and we want to ensure they are safe and easy to access.”
Acting Manager of Waterways and Coastal Protection, Luke Sulkowski, said the staircase materials and design were selected to increase longevity and provide vantage points for community members to enjoy the outlook over Forresters Beach.
“The staircase is constructed from fibreglass reinforced plastic,” Sulkowski said.
“The tiered design and bench seat also allow for some great vantage points for community members to enjoy the view or take photographs across the beach.”
