Reminder to have a say on Hospital Road upgrades

Reminder to have a say on Northern Beaches Hospital Road upgrades

26 May 2014

Wakehurst MP Brad Hazzard is reminding local residents that to have a say about planned road upgrades near the Northern Beaches Hospital site they have until Friday 30 May.

“My message to locals is to not let the deadline slip by without having your say,” Mr Hazzard said.

“RMS is keen to thank the Northern Beaches community for its high level of interest since March. In the early consultation phase of the project there have been more than 1000 stakeholders registered, 90 written submissions received so far and more than 700 attendees at information sessions.”

“Feedback on the early enabling work will help inform the concept design for stage one.

These designs are expected to be displayed by RMS along with stage two strategic designs later this year.

“The hospital will be located close to Warringah Road, Forest Way and Wakehurst Parkway which are major arterial roads serving the northern beaches.

“RMS is working closely with the many residents, businesses and other stakeholders, including The Forest High School, to understand concerns and to reduce the impact of building work.

“Community members will be invited to provide feedback again in the coming months as the next stage of the projects is developed.

“Road widening, intersection upgrades, new pedestrian bridges and bus priority lanes are all options being considered to reduce congestion.

“Work to reduce the impact of flooding on Wakehurst Parkway is also being investigated in parallel with the planning for the hospital road upgrade.
