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. The next step in this approval process is the release of this EIS report and online web portal.
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) places the EIS for the F6 Extension Stage 1 on exhibition for 28 days between Wednesday 7 November and Friday 14 December 2018. It provides the community, government agencies and stakeholders with an understanding of what is proposed and the opportunity to make comment on the project. Roads and Maritime considers all feedback to further develop the project. A report documenting the submissions and responses to the issues raised is then submitted to the DPE. The DPE prepares an assessment report for the Minister of Planning who determines whether or not the project is granted approval and any conditions of approval.
