Urban design plan for Sancrox interchange

Urban design plan for Sancrox interchange

25 March 2014

An urban design and landscape plan has been released for the Sancrox interchange as part of the 37 kilometre Oxley Highway to Kempsey Pacific Highway upgrade.

Roads and Maritime Services said the community is invited to view and comment on the urban design and landscape plan until Friday 4 April.

“Urban design considers the form and design of the project, including the bridges, mounds, protection screens, earthworks and the colours and materials that are used,” a Roads and Maritime spokesperson said.

“Under the plan, proposed plantings around the interchange include more than 170 trees, 6500 shrubs and 560 kilograms of seed.

“The landscape design will help blend the road into the existing vegetation along the highway and provide visual screening.”

The Oxley Highway to Kempsey upgrade is one of four projects being carried out between Port Macquarie and Raleigh, south of Coffs Harbour.

“That means there will be 105 kilometres of highway under major work by the end of the year,” the spokesperson said.

The plan will be on display at the following locations:

Port Macquarie-Hastings Council Service Centre
Corner of Lord and Burrawan streets
Port Macquarie
Monday to Friday 8.30am to 4.30pm
Service NSW
Corner of Central Road and Barton Crescent
Port Macquarie
Monday to Friday 7am to 7pm
Saturday 29 March from 9am to 3pm

The plan can also be viewed on Roads and Maritime’s project website at ww.rms.nsw.gov.au/pacific and refer to Oxley Highway to Kempsey.

Written feedback is invited by Friday 4 April or alternatively emailed to oh2kinfo@shjv.com.au.

All written comments received will be considered in the final assessment and development of the urban design and landscape plan.
