Member for Hawkesbury Dominic Perrottet has encouraged members of the community to provide feedback on the Urban Design and Landscape Plan for the Windsor Bridge replacement project.
Mr Perrottet said the NSW Government is planning to build a new bridge and upgrade intersections to improve traffic flow and provide a reliable, safe crossing of the Hawkesbury River for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists.
“Features of the project include a new three lane bridge across the Hawkesbury River, upgrades to intersections and bridge approaches and a new shared pedestrian and cycle pathway across the bridge,” Mr Perrottet said.
“The key aims of the project are to ensure the new bridge is physically and visually integrated with its surrounding environment, improve community connectivity and maintain the existing heritage values of Windsor.
“The Urban Design and Landscape Plan shows how the project has been designed to meet these aims with careful consideration of the built, natural and community environment and in particular, the heritage values of the site.
“The proposed urban design and landscaping for the project also seeks to reunify Thompson Square into one open space as it originally was.
“The plan has been developed considering the history of the area from settlement, and the heritage significance of Thompson Square and its surrounds.”
Mr Perrottet said feedback on the proposed plan can be viewed online at rms.nsw.gov.au/windsorbridge.
The full plan will be on display at Hawkesbury Central Library and Windsor and Richmond Service Centre from Monday 13 March to Friday 7 April.
“Community members can also view the plan and provide feedback by meeting the project team at Windsor Riverview Shopping Centre between 10am and 1pm on Tuesday 21 March and 4pm to 7pm on Thursday 30 March,” Mr Perrottet said.
“Roads and Maritime will consider all feedback and continue to liaise with the community as the design progresses.” For more information about the project or to provide feedback visit rms.nsw.gov.au/windsorbridge.
