What is the Strategy about?

We have prepared a long-term road corridor strategy for Hastings River Drive, Ocean Drive and Kendall Road (MR538 and MR600) to guide future transport planning along these corridors. This 54km road corridor links Port Macquarie to neighbouring local towns and villages along the coast, and then inland to Kew and Kendall.

This strategy will focus on:

  • preserving the corridor
  • setting out a broad design framework for future transport network upgrades for all users, including traffic, walking, cycling, and public transport
  • defining priorities for future road maintenance, operation, and the safety of all road users.
  • How was the strategy developed?

From August 2020 to September 2021, we consulted with the community and key stakeholders by surveys and interactive online workshops. Bitzios consulting consulted with the community, undertook technical investigations and analysed traffic to understand who uses the corridor. The draft Road Corridor Strategy has been developed on the basis of this information.
