Planning for Albion Park Rail Bypass enters next stage
12 September 2017
Member for Kiama Gareth Ward has today announced that planning for the Albion Park Rail Bypass is progressing well, with the community invited to have a say on the submissions and preferred infrastructure report.
Mr Ward said that the New South Wales Government has provided $17.5 million in the 2017-18 State Budget to continue planning and early work to deliver the bypass.
“The report will be on display for two weeks from Monday 11th September and all feedback will be reviewed by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment,” he said.
“The M1 Princes Motorway will be extended between Yallah and Oak Flats, bypassing the highway through Albion Park Rail.
“The bypass will complete the missing link for a highway between Sydney and Bomaderry and provide easy access to Dapto, Albion Park and Oak Flats.
“Planning approval for the project is still targeted for this year and the community will continue to be kept updated as work progresses.
“The submissions and preferred infrastructure report describes changes in response to feedback from the community on the environmental impact statement released in 2015,” Mr Ward concluded.
