Nambucca heads to Urunga Pacific Highway upgrade noise report to be published in July
29 June 2017
Roads and Maritime Services advises that the post-construction operational noise report for the Nambucca Heads to Urunga section of the Pacific Highway upgrade is expected to be published in July, 2017, following the school holidays.
Roads and Maritime engaged AECOM to carry out the noise assessment after the jointly funded $780 million, 22-kilometre upgrade was opened in June last year.
Noise monitoring was carried out in November and December 2016 at various locations throughout the project to compare actual noise levels against the predicted noise levels used in the project design.
Prior to publication, the report is reviewed by the NSW Environment Protection Agency and the Department of Planning and Environment to ensure regulatory requirements have been met.
The report is currently undergoing a final review process.
The community will be advised when the report is published and will be able to view it at the project website at www.rms.nsw.gov.au/projects/northern-nsw/nambucca-heads-to-urunga.
A number of community information sessions will be held to explain the findings of the report.
These will be advertised in local newspapers and on the website.
