The Prospect HighwayUpgrade team invites you to have a say on the future upgrade of the ProspectHighway between Reservoir Road, Prospect and St Martins Crescent,Blacktown.
RMS has prepared anenvironmental impact assessment of the proposed upgrade, known as the Review ofEnvironmental Factors (REF). The REF assesses the potential environmentalimpacts, identifies environmental issues and outlines mitigation and managementmeasures. The potential impacts assessed by the REF include traffic, noise,biodiversity, heritage and hydrology.
The Prospect Highwayupgrade team are seeking feedback to finalise the concept design. Comments andsubmissions are invited until Monday June 30. The comments received during thisdisplay period will be considered as formal submissions to the REF. ASubmissions Report will be prepared and made available later thisyear.
During March 2013and October 2013 RMS sought feedback from the community on the local roadsaccess strategy and the preliminary concept design. These submissions have beenconsidered and published into submissions reports. The proposed design has beenrefined as a result of the feedback received.
These refinements tothe design include:
The proposed two-way road linking the Great Western Highway with the Prospect Highway has been moved up to 10 metres south to lessen property and environmental impacts
A new pedestrian crossing across the Prospect Highway at the Blacktown Road intersection
An upgrade of the existing Old Church Lane to Keyne Street pedestrian underpass to meet current design standards
Two new bus stops at Reservoir Road intersection
Relocation of the bus stop northbound at Stoddart Road to about 30 metres north of Harrod Street
Relocation of the bus stops at Blacktown Mega Centre south towards St Martins Crescent intersection
A new pedestrian footpath between Keyworth Drive and Roger Place
Retaining walls at:
St Bartholomew’s Church and cemetery
The proposed two-way link road, continuing north along the Prospect Highway
