Have a say on concept design of proposed Pacific Highway upgrade through Wyong Town Centre
29 October 2015
Roads and Maritime Services is inviting stakeholders and the community to have a say on the concept design and environmental assessment as planning progresses for the proposed upgrade of the Pacific Highway through Wyong town centre.
A Roads and Maritime spokesperson said $1.5 million has been allocated this financial year to continue planning the upgrade to improve traffic flow and provide more consistent travel times for motorists by providing two lanes in each direction.
“Comments received during the recent display of the revised design were considered in refining the concept design,” the Roads and Maritime spokesperson said.
“Roads and Maritime carried out an environmental assessment to assess the potential environmental and social impacts of the proposal and identify activities to manage and mitigate these impacts.
“These investigations found the proposal is not likely to have a significant impact on the environment with environmental mitigation and management measures put in place.
“Roads and Maritime will continue to keep the community and stakeholders informed during the planning process to help identify issues and minimise potential impacts of the proposed upgrade.
“Stakeholders and the community are invited to attend informal drop-in information sessions on Thursday 5 November between 10am and 2pm and 4pm and 8pm or Saturday 7 November between 10am and 1pm at the Wyong motor registry conference centre.
“Feedback on the concept design and environmental assessment is invited by 27 November and will be considered in finalising the proposal.”
Copies of the environmental assessment can be viewed on weekdays from 9am to 4pm at the Tuggerah Library or Wyong Shire Council. Project updates are available for collection at these locations and the Wyong motor registry.
The environmental assessment and concept design are now available for view or download on the Roads and Maritime website at Wyong town centre.
