NSW Government launches website for project planning

Transport for NSW has launched a new ‘one stop shop’ website to help developers who are planning projects that may interact with roads.

The webpage’s resources include road classifications, information on which agency is responsible for each type of road, fact sheets, and advice on carrying out roadwork during a project.

Director Development Services, Land Use, Damien Pfeiffer, said having the correct information available could save developers time and money when planning projects.

“The aim of this new online tool is to direct developers to resources that will help prepare their application before submitting it for approval through the Planning NSW Portal,” he said.

“We work every day with project proponents, and we hope the webpage will foster even greater collaboration between developers, councils and Transport for NSW during the early stages to help achieve the best possible outcomes.

“This website is one tool transport is using to help these applications move through the assessment process smoothly and efficiently as we look to keep the economy moving given the Covid-19 related impacts of recent years and will continually evolve.”
