LOCAL residents and businesses are invited to two community information sessions being held next month for the Pacific Highway Sapphire to Woolgoolga upgrade.

The information sessions will give the community an opportunity to meet the project team, discuss the upgrade's progress, ask questions and provide feedback.

Representatives will also provide an update on building activities and major upcoming project milestones.

Information sessions will be held on Saturday, May 26.

A morning session will be held at Woolgoolga Community Village Hall in Boundary Street between 9.30am and 11am.

An afternoon session between 1.30pm and 3pm will be conducted at the upgrade site compound at Emerald Beach with access at Fiddaman Road.

Roads and Maritime Services has engaged the Leighton Fulton Hogan Joint Venture to design and build the $705 million Sapphire to Woolgoolga upgrade.

The 25 kilometre dual carriageway upgrade extends from Sapphire, immediately north of Coffs Harbour, to Arrawarra, north of Woolgoolga.

The project consists of an upgrade of the existing highway to a four lane dual carriageway with a bypass to the west of Woolgoolga.

The upgrade will significantly improve road safety and reduce travel times for all users of the highway.

For more information on the project visit the website www.rms.nsw.gov.au/pacific.

Notes and presentations from the community meeting can also be found on the project website.
