The NSW Roads and Maritime service has invited community feedback on proposed upgrades to two intersections on Manns Road at West Gosford and Narara.
Roads Director Hunter Region Anna Zycki said the state government is investing $2.2 million to continue planning for the proposed upgrade.
“These intersection upgrades have been identified as a high priority to improve travel times along Manns Road as they will improve road user safety, traffic flow and access to public transport,” Ms. Zycki said.
“The proposal includes new turn lanes from Manns Road into Narara Creek Road to improve traffic flow for motorists turning in nearby schools and residential areas.”
Ms. Zycki said the proposal involves a range up of improvements including new traffic lanes and paths.
“The improvements will provide safer access to nearby schools particularly during peak periods around school pick-up and drop-off,” Ms. Zycki said.
“An extra lane is also proposed on Manns Road at the Stockyard Place intersection at West Gosford for southbound traffic.”
The public is also invited to comment on a review of environmental factors, which outlines key features of the proposal, the options Roads and Maritime have considered and the proposal’s environmental impact.
Submissions close 14 June, documents can be viewed at the Roads and Maritime Services website.
