Have your say!

Roads and Maritime Services is committed to actively engaging with community members and other stakeholders. Community consultation is undertaken on most projects except when emergency works need to be scheduled at short notice.

  • Community comments are sought at different phases of a proposed development, during construction and maintenance work and also road safety and] traffic management proposals. Feedback from the community provides useful local knowledge and helps Roads and Maritime reduce the impact of its works on road users, nearby residents and business.

As well as this page, which provides information about projects currently open for comment, Roads and Maritime project managers and service providers seek feedback in various ways as required, for example through:

  • Newsletters including contact details for feedback
  • Displays with staff available in public locations
  • Community information sessions and workshops
  • Meetings to discuss specific issues
  • Online forums
  • Using the 'Have Your Say' online consultation portal.

Project Name: Nelligen Bridge replacement

What are we doing?

Roads and Maritime Services is inviting feedback on the concept design and environmental impact assessment for a new bridge over the Clyde River at Nelligen.

Project Name: Lang Street, Kurri Kurri

What are we doing?

Roads and Maritime Services is seeking your feedback on a proposal to install a pedestrian refuge on Lang Street, between Mitchell Avenue and Merthyr Street at Kurri Kurri.

The NSW Government provided $200,000 this financial year for the work to improve pedestrian access and safety.

Work will involve installing a concrete pedestrian refuge to reduce the crossing distance for pedestrians. Concrete paths would connect with the existing footpath and pram ramps would be provided to improve accessibility at the refuge.

The work would also include providing new landscaped gardens on each side of the road to complement the pedestrian refuge and improve the visual amenity in the area.

How can you give feedback?

We invite your feedback by close of business Friday 25 November 2016.
