Have your say!

Roads and Maritime Services 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, Roads and Maritime 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.

Community comments are sought at different phases of a proposed development, during construction and maintenance work and also road safety and traffic management proposals. Feedback from the community provides useful local knowledge and helps Roads and Maritime reduce the impact of its works on road users, nearby residents and business.

Newell and Mitchell Highway intersection upgrade

Seeking feedback on the proposed design

Background

This upgrade will reduce congestion at this busy intersection for locals and traffic travelling through Dubbo.

The Newell and Mitchell Highway are part of the National Land Transport Network. It's an essential link for businesses and industries connecting major cities and regions. These routes are a vital part of the road network through Dubbo and the surrounding region.

The upgrade includes:

  • traffic lights to replace the existing roundabout
  • new pedestrian crossings on all four sides of the intersection, with foot ramps to improve wheelchair and pram access
  • intersection widening to allow for increasing traffic volumes
  • additional merge lane that minimises parking loss at Victoria Street shops
  • relocation of underground utilities and overhead power
  • safer turn paths for road trains (up to 36.5 metres long)
  • new stormwater system to improve drainage in a high rainfall event

Information about this project is being displayed at the same time as the new New Dubbo Bridge Review of Environmental Factors.

The local community can review the information and provide feedback at staffed information sessions and unstaffed displays in Dubbo in late May and June 2019.

New bridge over the Macquarie River in Dubbo

Background

The NSW Government is investing in a new bridge over the Macquarie River in Dubbo. 

The new bridge will:

  • improve freight efficiency
  • improve flood immunity for the Newell Highway and local traffic
  • reduce congestion within Dubbo

The project involves building a third high level river crossing in Dubbo. The River Street option is the preferred option.

The River Street option would continue from Thompson Street, near the Newell Highway, along a new road and follow the western river bank travelling north. It would then cross the river to connect to the Newell Highway near River Street in north Dubbo.
