Heddon Greta community invited to help shape road upgrade


27 May 2020

The local community is invited to have its say on a proposal to upgrade Main Road and Heddon Street at Heddon Greta.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Catherine Cusack said the proposal would seek to improve traffic flow and safety from Stanford Street to just north of Trenchard Street, which would adjoin an intersection upgrade that was currently under way.

“The Main Road and Heddon Street intersection is in the vicinity of a growing residential area, so we want to be sure the surrounding roads are safe for the families who live here,” Ms Cusack said.

“This proposal will improve safety by separating motorists travelling in opposite directions, and preventing them from turning across multiple lanes.”

The proposed work involves extending the two travel lanes in each direction on Main Road, and extending the concrete median from the current intersection upgrade to Stanford Street.

A cycle lane and a number of access changes would be made under the proposal with further information, including a design layout, available to view at: nswroads.work/heddongreta

Community members interested in having a say on the second stage of work are encouraged to email dwayne.ramzan-levy@rms.nsw.gov.au, or write to Dwayne Ramzan-Levy, Transport for NSW, Locked Bag 2030, Newcastle NSW 2300 by Friday, 5 June. 

All feedback will be carefully considered and the community kept informed as the proposal for stage two progresses.
