A community consultation report summarising feedback from residents and business has been prepared for the proposed Pitt Town bypass.
Mr Perrottet said the NSW Government was committed to progressing the development of the proposed bypass, which would reduce traffic through the town centre and improve traffic flow and safety for road users.
“With increasing development in the Pitt Town region, the community has been supportive of plans to improve traffic flow and safety through the centre of Pitt Town,” Mr Perrottet said.
“Feedback on the proposal was sought in May and June this year to help refine options for the project.
“A total of 53 submissions were received and these have been carefully considered by the project team as part of the community consultation report.
“About 120 people attended the Pitt Town Progress Association’s June meeting where members of the project team provided a briefing and answered questions on the proposal.
“Roads and Maritime Services will progress the following options to the next stage of design work:
Installing a new two lane roundabout for the new intersection at Pitt Town Road / Bathurst Street and Glebe Road
Installing a two lane roundabout instead of traffic lights for the new intersection at Eldon Street and Old Pitt Town Road
Investigating access between Buckingham Street and Cattai Road.
“The bypass has been under consideration for more than 60 years so I am pleased that it is progressing for the Pitt Town community,” Mr Perrottet said.
“Roads and Maritime Services will investigate each of these options in preparation of the final strategic design and preferred option.
“The community will be kept informed as work progresses and will be invited to provide feedback at later stages.”
