Three of Central Coast Council’s projects have been recognised as the best in New South Wales for their engineering excellence.
The winners were announced at the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia (IPWEA) state conference last night in the Hunter Valley.
The Wyong CBD drainage upgrade received top honours taking out the award for Design and/or Construction of a Local Government/Public Works Project.
The multi-million dollar project was split into six stages and saw drainage three times bigger than previous installed through the Wyong Central Business District (CBD) to reduce the impact of flooding in the area and support future growth and development.
In the same category, Council received a Highly Commended for the upgrade of high voltage assets at Mooney Mooney Water Pump Station.
Council also took out the Excellence in Road Safety Engineering for its proactive work in making our local roads safer.
Council’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr Rob Noble, said the awards highlighted the quality of essential services Council provides to the community.
“They are a testament to the hard work of our staff,” Mr Noble said.
“These awards recognise our outstanding performance while carrying out some of our core services – water supply, planning and drainage.”
