In Cooranbong NSW on “Demolition (Dwelling House...” at 266 Newport Road, Cooranbong NSW 2265:

Sharyn McClelland commented

The local areas of Morisset, Cooranbong, and Dora Creek will benefit from the placement of both on and off ramps to the M1 to Newport Road, as it will ease congestion particularly on Mandalong Road and Dora Street, Morisset, which gets extremely busy during peak hours.

Having entry and exit points to the M1 at Newport Road will also have benefits for the rapidly growing community given the large number of new estates in the local area. It will allow the community to use the facilities provided by the new service centres. This is especially since there is limited local facilities to cater for the fast growing community.

Additionally, the on and off ramps to the M1 at Newport Road will provide an alternative detour for heavy traffic on the M1 when the M1 is closed after accidents.

The infrastructure is essential given the fast growing community with new estates being frequently established and there is a need to plan for the future. It is cost beneficial to plan now for the future needs of the community and the travelling public. If this is ignored now, it will cost the government a lot more in public funding to put the access points to the M1. This is if the access points could even be put in later once the area is built out with new estates.

Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
