Portrush Road Corridor Planning Study
Between 19 July and 9 August 2021 the department sought input from the community and key stakeholders regarding key issues along Portrush Road. People were invited to “pin” their comments and suggestions to road corridor maps using the Social Pinpoint engagement platform.
A big thank you to everyone who participated. Over 100 comments were received and are now being reviewed by the transport planning team. Community and stakeholder feedback enables the planning team to better understand local issues, risks and opportunities, and can help influence future transport infrastructure projects.
What is a Road Corridor Planning Study?
A Road Corridor Planning Study looks at:
- How people live, work, visit and travel along the road corridor;
- Current challenges with how the road corridor functions; and
- Potential opportunities to improve the road corridor for all users.
Central to each study is the understanding that roads are not about just about the movement of people and goods, but are also places where people live, work, and visit.
Consideration is given to the current and future needs of a road corridor based on anticipated changes to population and activity in and along the road corridor. A range of indicators are examined including road safety, travel times, public transport, walking and cycling, land use, heritage, environment and place experience.
The Portrush Road study area runs from Cross Road to Hampstead Road.
At this stage funding is for the planning studies only. The studies will inform the development of a ‘pipeline’ of integrated, evidenced-based potential projects should funding become available.
The Road Corridor Planning Studies form part of the $10 million Transport Network Planning Studies Program which represents a proactive and strategic approach to transport planning.
