What's On

Draft Cessnock LGA Traffic and Transport Strategy

The Draft Strategy sets a 30-year vision and builds upon the local priorities that will contribute to the Federal and State governments’ objectives, as stated in the Draft Future Transport Strategy 2056 and the Draft Greater Newcastle Metropolitan Plan of corridor improvements to deliver greater journey time saving and road safety outcomes, and to fund projects that better connect local and regional roads to state highways and key freight hubs.  

The Draft Strategy does not attempt to resolve all the traffic and transport issues in the Cessnock LGA, instead it provides a strategic framework to determine the priority needs and issues to assist in long term planning for traffic and transport.  

A report is currently been prepared to seek Council’s endorsement to adopt the Cessnock LGA Traffic and Transport Strategy Technical Report, following public exhibition, consultation and consideration of submissions.
