Have your say!

The NSW government is committed to actively engaging with community members and other stakeholders. Community consultation is undertaken on most projects except when emergency works need to be scheduled at short notice.

As well as this page, which provides information about projects currently open for comment, project managers and service providers seek feedback in various ways as required, for example through:

  • Newsletters including contact details for feedback
  • Displays with staff available in public locations
  • Community information sessions and workshops
  • Meetings to discuss specific issues
  • Online forums
  • Using the 'Have Your Say' online consultation portal.

Nelson Bay Road Program


The NSW Government is investing $275 million to improve safety and travel times on Nelson Bay Road including duplicating the road from Williamtown to Bobs Farm and early work to upgrade the Nelson Bay Road and Lemon Tree Passage Road intersection and the Nelson Bay Road and Medowie Road intersection.

Two primary route alignment options are being considered for both sections of the project. An on-line route would follow the existing Nelson Bay Road alignment. An off-line route would follow a new road alignment.

Feedback received will be considered to finalise the preferred route option for Williamtown to Bobs Farm duplication and prepare the environmental assessments.
