Does anyone know about the Adcock Park upgrade. Are the plans available anywhere online. From the pictures I have seen on the news, I will need an uber to get from the carpark to the velodrome.

From the plans shown to CCCC representatives (Brendan, Gary and myself) the walk is ridiculous, possibly 200m. We were not given a copy of those propose plans.

We wrote a comprehensive response outlining how unhappy we were with the proposed changes to the parking and therefore access to the velodrome but Central Coast Council staff have not responded to that letter.

Very little in the way of information available (that I've found).

If you want to get annoyed watch this local news clip:  https://www.nbnnews.com.au/2019/02/02/26m-in-adcock-park-upgrades-on-the-way/

I found a very low res image of what is proposed. The carpark that we use will be made into touch/tag footy fields and parking is to the north of the existing fields. Some of that existing field area becomes the new car park. 

It looks like not a single issue that we raised has been addressed. Or you could say that every issue we raised has been ignored.

There's a Telegraph article that the image is from but it is behind a paywall and I'm not paying to read the telegraph:

Adcock Park upgrade: Council commit $25 million to project | News Local

 
If anyone can access that article and copy and paste the content here, that'd be good.
 
In the attached image, you can see the remnants of the road that we use to access the velodrome is still there but it is supposed to be for emergency access only.

Here's an estimation of the path we will be required to take from the carpark to the velodrome entrance.
