Community information sessions for Sapphire to Woolgoolga upgrade
24 August 2011
The Roads and Traffic Authority is inviting the community to information sessions about the Sapphire to Woolgoolga Pacific Highway upgrade on Saturday 27 August.
“The sessions will provide an update on the project and give people an opportunity to ask the project team questions,” a Roads and Traffic Authority spokesperson said.
“The project’s impact on the local road network, as well as progress of bridge building along the upgrade, will be discussed.
The sessions will be held at:
- Woolgoolga Community Village Hall
Boundary Street, Woolgoolga
- Moonee Beach Hall
Moonee Beach Road, Moonee Beach
1.30pm - 3pm
”The project team is interested to hear people’s feedback and comments on the upgrade work,” the spokesperson said.
A sausage sizzle will also be held at both sessions to raise money for a local service club.
For catering purposes, please register your attendance by calling the project’s toll-free information line on 1800 63 63 63.
The Roads and Traffic Authority has engaged the Leighton Fulton Hogan joint venture to design and build the $705 million Sapphire to Woolgoolga upgrade.
The project involves building 25 kilometres of four-lane divided road from Sapphire, immediately north of Coffs Harbour, to Arrawarra, north of Woolgoolga.
The upgrade will significantly improve road safety and reduce travel times for all users of the highway and improve the general amenity of the northern beaches area and Woolgoolga.
For more information on the project visit www.rta.nsw.gov.au/pacific or phone the project’s toll-free information line.
The Sapphire to Woolgoolga Pacific Highway upgrade is jointly funded by the Federal and NSW governments.
