Community engagement

In January 2016 Roads and Maritime sought community feedback through a  ‘Have Your Say’ inviting stakeholders and the community to comment on the proposed improvements.

In August 2016 a ‘Have Your Say’ community update was distributed inviting stakeholders and the community to comment on a proposed night construction work schedule.

Roads and Maritime sought community feedback in 2016. All comments were considered and impacted our decision making process. The community consultation report was prepared in September 2016 and can be viewed here.
