Community involvement

The preferred option for the Mulgoa Road / Castlereagh Road corridor upgrade was placed on display for community comment from Wednesday 19 April to Friday 19 May 2017. We prepared a community consultation report summarising the comments received and our responses (link to report).

Following community consultation, the preferred corridor for the entire Mulgoa Road / Castlereagh Road upgrade was finalised in April 2018.

Roads and Maritime invited the community and stakeholders to provide feedback on the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for the Mulgoa Road, Jamisontown upgrade, from Monday 27 August until Friday 21 September 2018. A Submissions Report will be released that responds to all feedback received during the display of the concept design and REF. It will also be used to help develop the detailed design of the project.
