Port Macquarie Orbital Road

When will Council be engaging with the community?

Council is committed to engaging with our community on important projects like the proposed Orbital Road so we can make the best possible decisions based on the interests and concerns of our community. We have a range of ways you can provide feedback on this project, and we encourage you to do so.

The proposed Orbital Road consists of the collective East-West Link (Ocean Drive to Oxley Highway), the North-South Link (Oxley Highway to Boundary Street) and the flood-free Primary Airport Access Road. It is a new approach to improving the road network in and around Port Macquarie. It will improve connectivity to key destinations including the Health and Education Precinct, the Airport and the Regional Sports Stadium.

The most viable route has been identified, however as the project is in the early stages of development and the approval process is yet to begin, the final route is yet to be determined. Comprehensive technical and environmental investigations will be required before the final route is confirmed.

Dates are now confirmed for community information drop-in sessions. We encourage you to come along and share your views on the project, ask questions and hear directly from the project team. Council will be holding six public community information sessions in early March. The details of these sessions are:

  • Session 1 – Saturday 2 March, 11am – 2pm - Westport Club – Hastings Room
  • Session 2 – Tuesday 5 March, 11am – 2pm - Emerald Downs Community Centre
  • Session 3 – Tuesday 5 March, 5:30pm – 8:30pm - Westport Club – Hastings Room
  • Session 4 – Saturday 9 March, 11am – 2pm - Emerald Downs Community Centre
  • Session 5 – Tuesday 12 March, 11am – 2pm - Westport Club – Hastings Room
  • Session 6 – Tuesday 12 March, 5:30pm – 8:30pm - Westport Club – Hastings Room

If you are unable to attend a drop-in session but would like to submit online feedback, we encourage you to complete the survey or lodge a submission directly through the surveys available under the SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS tab below. Hard copies of the survey and submission form will also be available at the community drop-in sessions.
