Planning Statement raises two queries
I wish to thank Peninsula News (1 June 2020) for the very useful and detailed analysis of the Central Coast Council's Local Strategic Planning Statement.
It raises two queries for me.
First, is it accurate to say that Woy Woy Rd is not an arterial road (to and from Sydney via Kariong and the M1 Motorway?
In this regard a link is shown between Woy Woy and Kariong, but what it describes is unclear.
What is the "M1-Newcastle Smart Motorway", as the statement does not show either Ocean Beach Rd or Woy Woy Rd as arterial roads?
Secondly, I seek clarification on the following:
Page 92 in "Enabling Projects" refers to 10 - "Rawson Rd Level Crossing Replacement".
Then, page 135, the Transport Legend, refers to 30 - "Rawson Rd Level Crossing Upgrade".
Furthermore, it specifies "new infrastructure initiative proposed by Council 0-10 years".
So, my question is: Is it an upgrade or a replacement proposed for the Rawson Rd level crossing that has been the site of so many tragic accidents, injuries and fatalities?
