About the project
The NSW Government is addressing congestion, improving safety and providing more choice for how you move around all of Sydney.
The F6 Extension is one of the NSW Government’s transport priority projects to improve the efficiency of traffic flows between the Sutherland and Illawarra region, Sydney Airport and Port Botany precinct, with onward connectivity to the north and west of Sydney.
Roads and Maritime Services is seeking approval to construct and operate the F6 Extension Stage 1 from the New M5 Motorway at Arncliffe to President Avenue at Kogarah.
Following your feedback on the EIS, a Submissions Report and a Preferred Infrastructure Report (PIR) have been prepared. The reports can be viewed and you can make a submission on changes to the project as identified in the PIR on the Department of Planning and Environment’s website .
What is an EIS?
An EIS describes the key features of the F6 Extension Stage 1 and assesses the potential environmental and social impacts during construction and operation. The EIS document also makes recommendations on measures to manage and minimise potential impacts from the project.
The NSW Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) placed the EIS for the F6 Extension Stage 1 on exhibition for 28 days between Wednesday 7 November and Friday 14 December 2018. It provided the community, government agencies and stakeholders with an understanding of what was proposed and the opportunity to make comment on the project. Roads and Maritime considered all feedback to further develop the project. A report documenting the submissions and responses to the issues raised was then submitted to the DPE. The DPE prepared an assessment report for the Minister of Planning who determined whether or not the project was granted approval and any conditions of approval.
