Updates and announcements

In June 2014 the NSW Government announced it would provide $280 million for the Rankin Park to Jesmond section of the Newcastle Inner City Bypass.

An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) has been developed to identify potential impacts associated with the project.

The EIS outlines the key features of the project and assesses its potential environmental, social and economic impact during construction and operation.

The EIS Overview (PDF, 7.73Mb) summarises the key issues outlined in the EIS.

The Department of Planning and Environment has placed the EIS on display for comment. All submissions must be received by the Department of Planning and Environment by Friday 16 December 2016.
