Invitation to community members to help shape the foreshore around Batemans Bay Bridge.
Roads and Maritime Services is seeking three community representatives to participate in a Foreshore Advisory Committee (FAC).
The role of committee members is to provide recommendations to the project team and help shape the design of the Clyde River foreshore, as part of the Batemans Bay Bridge replacement project. The community representatives are an important part of the foreshore design process and will work together with project team members, Council and other key local representatives to discuss proposed features including parking and recreational areas, river access, landscaping and artwork around the foreshore.
The Committee will meet a minimum of monthly over the next 6 months until the start of major work in early 2019. They will then meet on an a quarterly basis during construction.
To submit your application, please visit rms.nsw.gov.au/batemansbaybridge or call the project team on 1800 870 119. Your application will be assessed by a John Holland representative, an independent representative, a Council representative and the Roads and Maritime Project Manager.
Applications close 16 September 2018.
Applications from landowners, residents, businesses and other stakeholder groups not directly impacted by the road corridor will be preferred as we are seeking broad community representation. Directly impacted stakeholders and groups are being consulted separately.
Start of early works
John Holland will start the investigations of ground conditions and confirm locations of required utilities from late August until mid November 2018.
They will also be observing vegetation conditions and local wildlife habitats and surveying seagrass in and around the Clyde River. You may notice these activities along the main road way and in the area around the location of the proposed new bridge and on the Clyde River.
There will be temporary traffic changes around these locations at times to ensure the safety of workers. Ongoing water quality checks will also commence shortly once the most appropriate locations are identified. Setting up the site office is planned to start in late September and utilities will be relocated from later this year.
