The environmental impact statement (EIS) for stage one of the F6 extension is due to be released on Wednesday, November 7.

Residents will have five and a half weeks, during the busy lead-up to Christmas, to provide written comment.

Public submissions to close on December 14.

The Department of Planning and Environment said the EIS was for “the next phase of planning” stage one of the extension, including:

  • Twin four-kilometre tunnels linking the new M5 Motorway at Arncliffe to President Avenue at Kogarah.
  • Ramps between the main motorway tunnel and the surface intersection at President Avenue.
  • Tunnel stubs for a future connection south to extend the F6 Extension.
  • Provision of new shared cycle and pedestrian pathways.

Executive director priority projects David Gainsford said feedback received would inform the assessment process.

“We encourage the community to provide feedback on the EIS for this project during the public exhibition period,” he said.

“Public submissions are vital to guide our assessment of applications for projects like this – we want to hear your views.”

The EIS will be available on the department's website on Wednesday. Visit: majorprojects.planning.nsw.gov.au/index.pl?action=view_job&job_id=8931
