Hunter Expressway information session at Wallsend
The Hunter Expressway team will hold a drop-in information session at Wallsend this 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 computerised 3D model of the Hunter Expressway will be available to view.
“Community members with an interest in the project are welcome to visit the information session at any time between 3.30pm and 6.30pm on Tuesday 14 August at the Wallsend District Library on Bunn Street.
“The Hunter Expressway team will continue to have regular public information sessions across the region,” 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.
