Options on table for new bridge

A SECOND bridge in Grafton now appears firmly on the agenda following an announcement late yesterday the RTA was moving to the next stage of community consultations.

In a prepared media statement, the RTA said previous studies had confirmed a location for a bridge but also identified the need to look at the roads that would connect a new bridge to the existing road network.

“The preliminary road corridor options are now on display and preliminary traffic modelling of these options has been carried out,” a spokesperson said.

“These options provide a basis for community consultation and environmental investigations to help the RTA develop more detailed route options, which will be put on public display later this year for further feedback from the community.”

Two information sessions will be held on Wednesday, March 3, at the Grafton Community Centre from 10am to noon and from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

There will also be two community workshops on Thursday, March 11, for which residents will need to register.

The latest brochure, display and traffic review can be downloaded from the RTA’s website www.rta.nsw.gov.au or seen by visiting: Grafton Shoppingworld, Duke Street, Grafton; RTA regional office, 31 Victoria Street, Grafton; Clarence Valley Council administration centre, Prince Street, Grafton, or; RTA motor registries at Maclean and Grafton.

To find out more or to register for one of the community workshops, residents need to call 1800 633 332.
