4 February 2014
The community has more time to have a say on options for the removal of Riverstone railway level crossing with the time to comment extended in response to feedback from the community.
Roads and Maritime Services is investigating options to remove the Garfield Road level crossing of the Richmond Rail Line to help manage the growing traffic demand.
“Roads and Maritime recognises this is an important change for the community. To ensure as many community members as possible can have their say, time to provide feedback on the options has been extended to Friday 28 February,” a Roads and Maritime spokesperson said.
“Roads and Maritime is reviewing the feedback received to date and invites further feedback from the community on the shortlisted options.
“The NSW Government provided $1 million this financial year to continue planning for the project as part of overall planning for the Garfield Road corridor between Windsor and Richmond roads.
“The community can view the shortlisted options on the website and in hard copy at Riverstone Library, 1st Floor, Marketown, Corner Market Street and Riverstone Parade and at Blacktown City Council, 62 Flushcombe Road at Blacktown.
“Community information sessions will be held on Tuesday 11 February from 10am to 2pm, on Thursday 13 February from 5pm to 8pm and on Saturday 15 February from 2 pm to-5pm at Riverstone Neighbourhood Centre, Sam Lane Community Complex, Park Street at Riverstone.
“Roads and Maritime has published a project summary report which details the announced preferred option, alternative options, options previously investigated and the project history.
“The project summary report is available online under ‘Riverstone,” the spokesperson said.
Roads and Maritime will continue to keep residents and stakeholders informed as the project progresses.
