NOV 2020Have your say

Transport for NSW is seeking feedback on the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for the Garfield Road East and West upgrades. View our November 2020 Community Update (PDF, 11.9Mb).

We welcome all your feedback on the REF and have extended the closing date for submissions until 5pm Friday 11 December 2020.

In response to the evolving Coronavirus situation, Transport for NSW is following NSW Health advice and changing the way it approaches community consultation for important transport infrastructure projects.

It is important for the community to have their say on all transport infrastructure projects. This means consultation will be carried out in different ways to ensure the community can practice social distancing and limit the spread of Coronavirus.

Online Community Information Session

To ensure the health and safety of the community and our staff we will replace face to face community information sessions with an online information session on the NSW Roads Facebook page on 10 November between 4pm and 4.30pm.

During the session, you can find out more about the REF from the project team and raise questions and concerns. If you are not able to join the live session or would like to submit your questions in advance, please email the team at nwgc@transport.nsw.gov.au or call us on 1300 367 561.

All feedback received will be considered and factored into the next stages of the project.
