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.

Projects for which community comments are being sought, December 2016 - January 2017

Project Name: Proposed improvements on Carlisle Avenue, Mount Druitt

What are we doing?

Roads and Maritime Services is seeking your feedback by Monday 12 December on a proposal to ban right turns into Frank Street and extending the northbound right turn bay into Fuller Street.

An analysis of five year crash data (between July 2009 and June 2014) for this area shows 11 reported crashes at the intersection of Carlisle Avenue and Frank Street. All 11 reported crashes involved motorists traveling north, turning right into Frank Street.

The proposal will improve safety on Carlisle Avenue by not allowing right turns into Frank Street. It will also increase the efficiency at the intersection of Carlisle Avenue and Fuller Street by extending the existing northbound right turn bay.

How can you give feedback?

We invite your feedback by Monday 12 December.

What are we doing?

Roads and Maritime Services is seeking feedback on a proposed night work construction schedule by Tuesday 13 December. The work includes removing and replacing sections of asphalt. We have included a map to explain the area of work.

We propose to work up to five nights a week for a nine week period. Alternatively, we could work for up to two nights a week for a 22 week period. For both proposals, our working hours will be from 8pm to 5am with noisier work completed before midnight.

Project Name: Lindesay Street, East Maitland

What are we doing?

Roads and Maritime Services is seeking your feedback on a proposal to install pedestrian refuges on Lindesay Street, between Cumberland Street and Raymond Terrace Road at East Maitland, to assist pedestrians to safely cross the road.

The NSW Government provided $550,000 this financial year for the work to improve pedestrian connections and safety.

Work would involve installing three pedestrian refuges and upgrading pedestrian facilities near the High Street roundabout to reduce the crossing distance for pedestrians.

The work would also include building connecting footpaths to the refuges, kerb and gutter and ramps to improve pedestrian access.

To ensure motorists have a clear line of sight and to allow for the pedestrian refuges, 23 on-road car parking spaces would need to be removed and a bus stop between Narang and George streets relocated around 40 metres east.

For more information please view the December 2016 project notification.

We invite your feedback by close of business Friday 16 December 2016.
