Have your say on bypass environmental report
8 December 2017
Parliamentary Secretary for the Illawarra and South Coast Gareth Ward is inviting the community to have a say on the environmental report prepared for the Illawarra and South Coast Lowland Forest and Woodland.
Mr Ward said that opening the environmental report to consultation is the next stage of planning for the Albion Park Rail bypass project.
“This is an exciting next step for the bypass project which is the “missing link” for a high standard road between Sydney and Bomaderry,” he said.
“Reaching this project milestone is great news for the local community and motorists who regularly use the Princes Highway at Albion Park Rail.
“Interested members of the community can view the report’s findings on the effects of the motorway extension on the Illawarra and South Coast Lowland Forest and Woodland and its inhabitants.
“Community members are encouraged to view the report and submit their feedback to Roads and Maritime.
The report is available online at rms.nsw.gov.au/apr and at Roads and Maritime, Level 4, 90 Crown Street, Wollongong NSW 2500 and Albion Park Library, Russell Street, Albion Park NSW 2527.
The NSW Environment Protection Authority, Level 3, 84 Crown Street, Wollongong NSW 2500 and the Department of the Environment and Energy, 51 Allara Street Civic ACT, 2608 also have copies of the report.
Feedback must be provided by close of business on Friday 22nd December to the Albion Park Rail bypass project team, Roads and Maritime – PO Box 477 Wollongong NSW 2520.
Feedback can also be submitted by email AlbionParkRailbypass@rms.nsw.gov.au.
The bypass proposed for Albion Park Rail is a 9.8 kilometre extension of the Princes Motorway between Yallah and Oak Flats. The project is part of the Princes Highway upgrade program to improve road safety and efficiency.
