December 10 deadline for community feedback on Pitt Town bypass plans

Residents have until Monday to provide feedback on State Government plans for a bypass of Pitt Town to reduce traffic through the town centre.

The State Government is funding planing work, community consultation and property acquisition for the proposed one kilometre long corridor that would see two roundabouts installed, new crossings of Hortons Creek, and the closure of a portion of Cattai Road.

Plans: The NSW Government plans for the Pitt Town bypass. Community feedback on the proposal is open until Monday.

Plans: The NSW Government plans for the Pitt Town bypass. Community feedback on the proposal is open until Monday.

Two community information sessions have been held on the proposal, and the Pitt Town Progress Association has made a submission welcoming the plans.

“The proposed bypass would reduce traffic through the town centre, including heavy vehicles, improve safety for road users and pedestrians, provide more reliable travel times on Pitt Town Road and Cattai Road, [and] support economic and residential growth in the area,” government documents on the plans state.

“The community has a chance to comment on the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) and the concept design for the project.

“The REF outlines the key features of the proposal, the key objectives and the options considered by Roads and Maritime along with the proposals’s environmental impact.”

The REF and concept design is on display until next Monday, December 10.

Submissions can be emailled to pitttownbypass@rms.nsw.gov.au or posted to Roads and Maritime Services Pitt Town Bypass Project 27 Argyle Street Parramatta NSW 2150.

All submissions must be received by 5pm on December 10.
