Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is planning to build a roadway between Rankin Park and Jesmond in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia.
The project involves the construction of a 3.4km four-lane divided road bypass. It includes the construction of a grade-separated interchange at the northern connection with the existing Newcastle road to Shortland section of the bypass, an auxiliary connection to the rear of John Hunter hospital, bridge structures, a grade-separated interchange with Lookout road and McCaffrey Drive at the southern connection and related facilities.
In February 2007, RMS announced the selection of the preferred route for the project and commenced community consultation to gather feedback.
Subsequently, RMS refined the project designs with respect to the issue raised by the community such as its possible impact on the bush land corridor and the impending noise concerns.
In March 2008, the environment planning and assessment branch of the Roads and Traffic Authority (EPA-RTA) published a submissions report relating to the public display of the preferred route for the section.
