A proposal to construct a new multi-lane road link between the M5 East Motorway and St Peters will be on exhibition from today for community feedback.
The Department of Planning and Environment is keen to hear the community’s views on the application which seeks to:
- construct a new multi-lane road link between the M5 East Motorway (east of King Georges Road) and St Peters
- including new twin multi-lane tunnels approximately between Kingsgrove and St Peters
- widen the M5 East Motorway between King Georges Road and the proposed tunnels
- an interchange at St Peters
- undertake associated works to upgrade local roads.
A spokesperson for the Department of Planning and Environment said the local community always has an opportunity to share their views.
“Community consultation is an integral part of the planning process and the applicant will have to respond to the feedback we receive and this is taken into consideration when we develop our recommendations,” the spokesperson said.
“It’s easy to participate by going online and we encourage everyone to take a look and have their say.”
