Hunter Expressway community presentation at Kurri Kurri
5 June 2012
A Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) spokesperson said the Hunter Expressway team will next month hold a special community information session and presentation at Kurri Kurri High School.
“The project team holds at least one community information session each month in different parts of the region,” the spokesperson said.
“There is always a great response from the community to these information sessions and in June the session will have a slightly different format.
“For the June session the meeting will be longer and will include a presentation featuring progress photos, diagrams and some video footage.
“Refreshments will be provided and there will be a complimentary light supper.
“The supper and refreshments will be provided to attendees in partnership with the hospitality students from Kurri Kurri High School.
“The project team want to thank the community for their patience during the building of the Hunter Expressway and give people the opportunity to see the most up-to-date project information.
“The session will be held from 3.30pm on Tuesday 26 June at the Kurri Kurri High School Gymnasium on Deakin Street.
“The information session will be delivered in two parts. From 3.30pm until 6pm people will be able to see maps, diagrams and photographs of the project.
“At 6pm supper and refreshments will be served by the hospitality students. At 6.30pm people will be seated and a presentation will show the progress of the project to date.
“There will be an opportunity for people to ask questions of staff from RMS, the Hunter Expressway Alliance and Abigroup.
“The presentation will take about an hour and the evening will finish by 8pm,” the spokesperson said.
Community members interested in attending the information session and presentation should contact the Hunter Expressway team on (02) 4924 0441 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register their details by close of business on Friday 15 June.
