F6 Extension - stage 1

background

The NSW Government is proposing to build a 4km underground motorway, the F6 Extension, from President Ave at Kogarah to the New M5 Motorway at Arncliffe.

This will have a huge impact on many residents of the Kogarah Bay Ward with 1000’s of cars being funnelled onto our main corridors of Princes Highway and Rocky Point Road, with the NSW Roads Minister suggesting that 24hour clearways may be introduced on these 2 roads to improve traffic flow. Trying to attempt to cross over or turn onto either of these roads is already gridlock on most occasions. The introduction of 24hr clearways will not only have a devastating affect on local businesses, it will decimate the local community feel of shopping strips such as Ramsgate and Sans Souci. Parking in these locations is already a premium, with new apartment blocks being constructed every few hundred metres. The Leader recently published this article on the proposed clearways.
