ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT ON DISPLAY FOR 

HOLBROOK BYPASS


Local residents will have the opportunity to view and discuss the proposed Hume

Highway upgrade at Holbrook at the display of the Environmental Assessment. 


An RTA spokesperson said the environmental assessment of the Holbrook bypass is on

display from 11 November until Monday 14 December 2009.


“The environmental assessment outlines the proposal, its potential impacts and the

proposed environmental measures that will be in place.

 

“Generally, the assessment focuses on the key issues identified by the Department of

Planning and other agencies including potential social, economic and environmental

impacts of the bypass. 


“Following the display of the environmental assessment, the proposal will be assessed by

the NSW Department of Planning and considered for approval by the NSW Minister for

Planning. 


“The Holbrook bypass will be around 10 kilometres to the west of the town, joining up

with the four lane highway to the north and south of the town.


“It will provide numerous benefits to the local community by removing heavy trucks from

the town and improve driving conditions for motorists,” the spokesperson said.
