Hunter Expressway information session at Kurri Kurri
21 December 2011
The Hunter Expressway team will hold a drop-in information session at Kurri Kurri next month, as part of the project’s ongoing community consultation.
A Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) 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 computerised 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 9.30am and 12.30pm on Thursday 19 January 2012 at the Hunter Region Business Enterprise Centre, corner of Merthyr and Barton streets, Kurri Kurri.
“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.
