Community members are invited to provide feedback on the proposed directional signage plan for the Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway upgrade between Glenugie and Ballina.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said Roads and Maritime Services needs to finalise the plan this year so directional signage can be in place for the progressive opening of the new highway.
“An important consideration for the upgrade is the wording and location of signs to guide motorists, including directional, tourist and service signs,” he said.
“All signs to be installed on the upgraded highway must comply with Roads and Maritime guidelines to ensure motorists are able to find their destinations safely and efficiently.
State Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis said: “Preliminary engagement has been carried out with key stakeholders including Clarence Valley, Richmond Valley, Lismore and Ballina Shire councils and representatives from local business, Destination NSW and community groups.”
He said community members and stakeholders can view the proposed signage plan on the project website between Thursday 31 May and Friday 15 June.
Parliamentary Secretary for Northern NSW Ben Franklin said information sessions for the community to view the plans and speak with the project team will be held on Wednesday 6 June at the Grafton Community Centre between 10am and noon and Maclean Civic Hall from 2pm to 4pm, and Thursday 7 June at Wardell Hall between 10am and noon and Woodburn Visitor Information Centre from 2pm to 4pm.
The sessions are not presentations and attendees are encouraged to drop in at any time. For more information, please call 1800 778 900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All feedback received will be considered in finalising the directional signage plan and will be included in a consultation report, which will be made available to view on the project website.
