Infrastructure Set For Take Off

Michael Sharpe, Acting CEO of HunterNet Co-operative, is urging Central Coast contractors and suppliers to register for the massive infrastructure projects now underway in our region.

“Today we are holding an infrastructure forum at HunterNet to highlight the huge opportunities in the pipeline including the $1.5 Billion redevelopment of the Air Force Base at Williamtown and the North Connex twin tunnel motorway under Pennant Hills Road which will provide jobs for more than 8000 people,” said Mr Sharpe.

Local business owners and contractors can tender for parts of these large scale road projects and defence force upgrades to help secure local jobs.

Mr Sharpe said “Infrastructure equals jobs and local companies on the Central Coast can get involved with the infrastructure investment that is about to transform our region.

“The major projects include local purchasing guidelines that provide unique opportunities for many small businesses on the Central Coast to get involved and to get working.”

“As a locally driven, member based co-operative we are all about getting our region moving and the benefit of building roads, tunnels and airports is that it creates jobs for today and provides better transport options in the future for all of us,” said Mr Sharpe
