Updates and announcements

The NSW Government is funding the Rankin Park to Jesmond section of the Newcastle Inner City Bypass.

An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) was developed to identify potential impacts associated with the project. The Department of Planning and Environment has placed the EIS public exhibition between 16 November and 16 December 2016.

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

In response to community submissions during the exhibition of the EIS, a number of design refinements have been made to the project. We have also made changes through the ongoing review of the concept design and consultation with other government agencies.

A project update (PDF, 2.86Mb) providing information about the design refinements is now available to view.

Drop-in information session

We will be holding a drop-in information session at Silver Ridge Community Cottage, 13 Iranda Grove, Wallsend on Saturday 16 June 2018 between 9am and 12pm about these design refinements. The community is invited to come and meet the project team, share feedback and find out more information.
