The Windsor community has participated in a robust two-way exchange of information with the community about the Windsor Bridge project since it was first announced in June 2008.
How has the community been kept informed?
RMS has consulted and communicated with the community by newspaper advertisements, posters, leaflets, letterbox drops, newsletters, email, website updates, community briefings and meetings, shopping centre displays, design and heritage community focus group meetings, door knocking, online discussion forums, business group meetings and animations on the website.
What types of issues has the community been consulted on?
The community has discussed many issues thus far, including:
- The location of the new bridge
- The type of bridge to be considered and how that would look.
- The height and grade of the bridge and approach road to Windsor town centre (and how to minimise impacts on Thompson Square).
- The future renewal of Thompson Square.
- Design and heritage issues.
- Local and access roads.
- The location of footpaths and cycleways
- The extent of archaeological and geotechnical testing.
