Mem­ber for Hawkes­bury Dominic Per­rot­tet to­day an­nounced the pre­ferred op­tion for the pro­posed Pitt Town By­pass has been se­lected af­ter ex­ten­sive com­mu­nity con­sul­ta­tion.

Mr Per­rot­tet said the pro­posed by­pass would re­duce traf­fic trav­el­ling through the town cen­tre and im­prove road safety for all users.

“The NSW Gov­ern­ment funded early plan­ning work to ad­dress the com­mu­nity’s con­cern about the large num­ber of ve­hi­cles pass­ing through the town cen­tre.”

“The com­mu­nity’s feed­back has been taken into con­sid­er­a­tion and Roads and Mar­itime Ser­vices has in­cor­po­rated a num­ber of sug­gested fea­tures into the pre­ferred op­tion.”

“Key fea­tures of the pre­ferred by­pass op­tion in­clude a two lane round­about for the new in­ter­sec­tion at Pitt Town Road, Bathurst Street and Glebe Road.”

“Other fea­tures in­clude a two lane round­about in­stead of traf­fic lights for the new in­ter­sec­tion at El­don Street and Old Pitt Town Road.”

“The by­pass has been un­der con­sid­er­a­tion for more than 60 years so I am pleased that it is pro­gress­ing for the Pitt Town com­mu­nity,” Mr Per­rot­tet said.

Roads and Mar­itime Ser­vices will con­tinue plan­ning and devel­op­ment of the con­cept de­sign and con­sult with the com­mu­nity as the pro­posal pro­gresses.
