Community consultation has closed for the proposed overpass on the Bass Highway at Leith.

Seven public consultation sessions were held in Turner’s Beach on Friday, 23 July 2021 and Saturday, 24 July 2021.

Each 90-minute session allowed the community to have dedicated time with a project team member and to ask questions while viewing consultation materials.

Four pop up community consultation sessions were also held across a range of North West locations on Saturday, 7 August 2021 and Sunday, 8 August 2021.

Consultation materials were available for public comment and to view online and during business hours at the Central Coast Council, 9 King Edward Street, Ulverstone, until Wednesday 11 August.

The consultation materials included the consideration of options such as a roundabout, speed reduction, right turn bans, an overpass, and a summary of the next steps.
