As part of the 2020-21 Operational Plan, we have begun the complex process of upgrading Boundary Street from Hastings River Drive to Oliver Road (Airport Car Park).
Boundary Street is currently the only vehicular access to the Port Macquarie Airport and neighbouring business park, which is accessed via Hastings River Drive. The overall aim of the road upgrade is to provide a safer, flood free and more efficient section of road for road users and pedestrians.
Boundary Street is intended to be upgraded to Arterial Road status, and as part of the safety requirements, a median is required to separate traffic and maintain suitable flow. With the exception of turning lanes into Regional Stadium and Newman College, this will remove the ability for vehicles to turn right off or onto Boundary Street from both sides of the road. In addition, there is insufficient road reserve area to facilitate dual lanes and retain on-street parking.
The proposed design works will include:
The project Development Application (DA) has been submitted and is currently under review.
Due to the complexity of the project and external stakeholder reviews required, it is expected this DA review and approval will be completed during 22/23FY.
The benefits of the project are:
