"On Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 April helicopters will bring in building materials for the upgrade, and during this time the section of the track between Putty Beach and Maitland Bay will be closed for visitors' safety.

"Stretching from Putty Beach to MacMasters Beach in its entirety, the Bouddi Coastal Walking Track is one of the most popular on the Central Coast with around 200,000 visitors each year. It showcases a stunning array of bushland, rock formations and ocean vistas.

"This project will significantly enhance the existing track to improve safety, reduce erosion and provide a better visitor experience.

"The track is subject to erosion from the coastal environment, weather impacts and pedestrian usage, and these works will improve its longevity and assist with future maintenance."

Anyone planning to visit a national park should check NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service for updates and alerts on park closures before leaving home.

Visitors are also reminded of COVID-19 guidelines and ensure social distancing rules are followed.
