Wharf use delayed for ribbon-cutting photo, says Tesch

Woy Woy wharf has been completed for two months, but the community has been denied its use in favour of a ribbon-cutting photo opportunity for Liberal politicians, according to Labor Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch.

"The Woy Woy Wharf upgrade is yet to open to the public because members of the Liberal Government are unable to cut their ribbon under the current restrictions.

"As far as I am concerned, this wharf was an upgrade for the community not an upgrade for a 'success' photo," she said.

"While we are all in lockdown, families here on the Peninsula are enjoying our incredible waterfront and everything it has to offer going on walks and exploring new places in their own backyard for their mental and physical wellbeing."

"I know for locals a new wharf is exactly the kind of excitement they need and something our community wants to celebrate and enjoy."

The $5.6 million investment into the redevelopment of the iconic Woy Woy Wharf features a floating pontoon with wheelchair access, lighting, benches with shelter and a fishing area.

Ms Tesch says people are allowed to picnic and fish and, now that it has officially been completed for over two months, want to experience all that the wharf has to offer.

"Before the hustle and bustle of normal life and ferry services return, it would be a nice reward and silver lining for locals to enjoy a picnic on the wharf and be able to fish.

"We have waited years for a wharf upgrade and months for the official upgrade to be complete."

"It is a real shame and embarrassment for the Woy Woy Wharf to not be open simply because an archaic and bureaucratic process, which quite frankly no one cares about.""I think I speak for all of the community when I say we would much rather be able to enjoy our wharf now then wait for the Facebook post and announcement."
