Sessions outline bypass plans

WITH detailed planning due to start on the Albion Park Rail bypass, residents have been invited to attend information sessions next month at Centenary Hall, on Tongarra Road.

Member for Kiama Gareth Ward encouraged residents to get involved.

"The drop-in sessions provide an informal format for community members to meet members of the project team, ask questions and provide feedback on the project," Mr Ward said.

He said NSW Roads and Maritime Services' detailed planning would include a concept design and investigating possible interchange locations.

The four sessions follow a review of the bypass corridor last year.

They will be held on Saturday, March 1 from 10am to 1pm, Monday, March 3 from 5pm to 8pm, Saturday, March 8 from 1pm to 4pm and Monday, March 10 from 5pm to 8pm.

Meanwhile, a Croom Regional Sporting Complex Stakeholder Group has been established to work with the RMS to minimise the impact on the sporting complex.

An RMS spokeswoman said the first meeting was held on February 12.

"The stakeholder group is not a formal decision-making body, but will ensure productive communication between Roads and Maritime and the sporting clubs," she said.

"The group will look at design refinements and how the route might be shortened to reduce travel time and encourage more traffic to use it."
