Have your say on new bypass EIS

Tunnels, lower gradients and low-noise pavement have been included in the design for the Coffs Harbour bypass according to the NSW State member for Coffs harbour, Gurmesh Singh.

“What we’re announcing today is that there will be three proper tunnels, we’ve listened to the communities concerns” Gurmesh Singh said.

Fourteen kilometres, bypassing up to 12 sets of traffic lights and removing up to 12,000 vehicles a day from the CBD

“Our songlines, storylines, walking tracks will remain intact” Uncle Mark Flanders said.

Submissions are invited on the EIS by Sunday 27 October and should be sent to the NSW Department of Planning Infrastructure and Environment.
