Hunter Expressway community information session
22 November 2011
The Hunter Expressway team will hold a drop-in information session at Newcastle next month, as part of the project’s ongoing community consultation.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the session will provide the community with information about the Hunter Expressway project, including the six interchanges along the route.
“Major work is ongoing and the information session will detail the activities taking place along the length of the project,” the spokesperson said.
“Information including maps, artist impressions and a 3D model of the Hunter Expressway will be available to view on the day.
“Community members with an interest in the project are welcome to visit the information session at any time between 3.30pm and 6.30pm, Tuesday 13 December at the Newcastle Room, Newcastle City Hall, King Street, Newcastle.
“The Hunter Expressway team will continue to have regular public information sessions at locations in the Hunter.
“The community will be informed through local media about the time, date and location of upcoming community information sessions,” the spokesperson said.
The $1.7 billion project is jointly funded, with the Federal Government providing $1.5 billion and the NSW Government contributing up to $200 million.
The project involves building a 40 kilometre, four lane divided road linking the F3 Freeway near Seahampton and the New England Highway, west of Branxton.
