Waterfall Way draft corridor strategy now open for public comment

25 July 2017
 
Community members now have the chance to have a say on a range of initiatives to prioritise future investment on Waterfall Way.

Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey MP, said the Waterfall Way Draft Corridor Strategy details short, medium and long term proposed actions to improve the corridor’s utility, traffic efficiency and safety.

“Waterfall Way is a very important link road for residents, primary industries, business and freight operators, and tourism, which is why a formal strategy is required to guide development of the corridor into the future,” Mrs Pavey said.

“Many actions are proposed, including creating more opportunities for vehicles to overtake between the Pacific Highway and Dorrigo, strengthening and repairing pavement at key points and improving drainage.

“The draft strategy also outlines plans to progressively widen and realign narrow sections of the road and implement clear zones and safety barriers to provide protection from various hazards,” Mrs Pavey said.

The Waterfall Way Draft Corridor Strategy has been prepared by Roads and Maritime Services in conjunction with Transport for NSW.

Feedback can be provided until Monday 21 August by emailing waterfallway@rms.nsw.gov.au, calling 6640 1300 or writing to Roads and Maritime Services PO Box 576 Grafton NSW 2460.

The draft strategy can be viewed online.
