Intersection improvements at Rooty Hill Road North, Jersey Road and Lamb Street, Plumpton

Updates and announcements

In August 2016 Roads and Maritime consulted with the community on a night work schedule at the intersection of Rooty Hill Road North, Jersey Road and Lamb Road, Plumpton.

We received comments from 11 people. Six people supported the proposed night construction work schedule, two raised issues of construction noise and consultation, and three commented on the project proposal.

Following a review of the comments, we will proceed with the proposal to work up to five nights a week for a five month period. We have prepared a Community Consultation Report (PDF, 743Kb) which summarises the feedback and our responses.
