MUSWELLBROOK Shire Council is currently preparing to develop and construct the first sections of the Rail Noise Abatement Project.

Council is planning a series of engagement activities with the community to seek suggestions and feedback from interested parties and particularly nearby residents and business operators on each of the elements of the proposal. 

Concept designs for the first stage of the project, which is proposed to extend from Brook Street to Simpson Park, have been prepared and endorsed by council for public exhibition.

Local residents and other community stakeholders are encouraged to consider the plans, which are available on council’s website, Muswellbrook and Denman libraries, and the Council Administration Centre.

Council will also host a drop-in information stand on the ground floor of Campbell’s Corner from 8am to 6pm on Tuesday, March 27.

Residents are invited to visit the pop up information stand to inspect the concept plans, ask questions on the project and provide their feedback. 

In addition, interested parties are invited to make a written submission, addressed to:

• The General Manager, PO Box 122, Muswellbrook NSW 2333; or

• Email to council@muswellbrook.nsw.gov.au

The Rail Noise Abatement Project is an initiative of Muswellbrook Shire Council, which has received funding support from the NSW Government’s Restart NSW Resources for Regions program. 

The Rail Noise Abatement Project – Stage 1 Concept has been placed on public exhibition for a period of 28 days to Wednesday, April 4.
