Kempsey Bypass community information session

The community is invited to an information session this month to learn more about noise monitoring and other final work for the $618 million four-lane Kempsey Bypass Pacific Highway upgrade.

“The 14.5 kilometre section of the highway opened to traffic in March this year,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.

“The upgrade aims to improve safety and reduce delays by allowing road users to bypass Kempsey and Frederickton.

“Community members are invited to attend the session on Wednesday 16 October from 5.30pm to 7pm at Kempsey RSL on York Lane.

“Important community issues will be explained, such as how recent noise monitoring carried out compares against predicted noise levels before the upgrade opened to traffic.

“An independent specialist noise consultant carried out the noise assessment at 24 locations along the bypass.

“The monitoring work aims to ensure noise from the new road causes as little disturbance as possible to nearby residents.

“The project team will explain the final noise report findings and answer questions on other minor work to be completed on the bypass,” a Roads and Maritime spokesperson said.

The report is now online on the Roads and Maritime website
