$618m works to assist Kempsey area, NSW

By webmaster

Investors have another reason to look towards New South Wales’ Kempsey area, with $618 million worth of work on the Kempsey Bypass expected to be finished more than a year ahead of schedule.

The Kempsey Bypass is an integral stage in duplicating the Highway and in making the area less prone to flooding, according to duty senator for Cowper, Matt Thistlethwaite.

The 14.5 kilometre, part of the 40 kilometre Kempsey to Eungain project, will be completed before the 2013 Easter holidays.

“Once completed, the new bypass will take up to 2,000 trucks a day off the local streets of Kempsey and Frederickton,” Mr Thistlethwaite said.

“At 3.2 kilometres in length, the new bridge being erected over the Macleay River and floodplain will be Australia's longest. I am also informed that the entire project is creating some 360 direct and 1,100 indirect jobs each year, which is excellent news for the region's many local businesses.”

NSW member for Port Macquarie, Leslie Williams, said that the highway would assist Frederickton’s flood-rating.

“The interchange will allow for completion of the Frederickton levee, which will improve flood immunity for the local community to a 1 in 100 year flood level,” Ms Williams said.

“The community will also benefit from a range of new flood mitigation measures such as house raising, stock mounds and flood compensatory work.”
