Fellow members and friends of the Hawkesbury the North Richmond and Districts Community Action Association Inc. (NRDCAA) has arranged a Public Meeting ,Thursday 1st August 2013 at the Richmond Club, East Market Street, Richmond. The NRDCAA does not hold an opinion as such but feel that the community of the Hawkesbury should be informed so that they can form their own opinion, it is not just a matter of easy access to aerial travel but the matters of appropriate infrastructure (and lack of) ,pollution and noise, particularly for those who depend on tank water and/or are under the flight path.
So it was decided that:
"Following the release of the Joint Study on Aviation for the Sydney Region the Committee recommended the Australian Government initiate action to progressively open RAAF Base Richmond to a level of civil traffic....... with agreed conditions.
The authors of the report have agreed to present to a public meeting August 1, 2013 at the Richmond Club, 7.30pm, followed by a Q&A session.
The GM of Sydney Aviation Capacity Mr Brendan McRandle will be the keynote speaker".
Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) has now released the Preferred Short-Term and Long-Term Options Report for the Richmond Bridge and Approaches Congestion Study.
The preferred options were identified in close collaboration with key stakeholders, including through a Value Management Workshop involving community representatives.
The report details the preferred short-term (to 2021) and long-term options (to 2036) which would best address traffic congestion on Richmond Bridge and its approach roads.
Key short-term recommendations of the plan focus on improvements to three key intersections: Bells Line of road / Grose Vale Road, Kurrajong road / Yarramundi Lane / Old Kurrajong Road and Kurrajong road / Bosworth Street.
The study also identifies the preferred longer term option for duplicating Richmond Bridge to address the future traffic needs and recommends reservation of a revised road corridor.
This report is now available on the RMS website. A link to the website is provided below:
