Community engagement

We sought feedback from the community on the proposed improvements in January and February 2016. We received submissions from nine people during this consultation period.

In June and July we consulted the community about proposed design changes and our proposed night work construction schedule. We received five submissions during this consultation period.

We have prepared a Community Consultation Report which summarises the comments and responses from both feedback periods, as well as details of the decision.

What happens next?

We will continue to keep the community informed of the project as it progresses
