Transport for NSW
The NSW South Coast community play a vital role in helping us shape the future of a safer, better connected and more sustainable Princes Highway.
Despite the challenges faced by the COVID-19 pandemic and 2019/2020 bushfire season, the Princes Highway upgrade project team demonstrated agility and innovation to involve south coast communities in the development of transport solutions that will define their region for future generations.
To achieve positive and sustainable outcomes for the community, we adapted our engagement approach in response to the limitations of the coronavirus pandemic and learnings from the bushfire season. Positive communication outcomes were achieved despite the widespread hardships by ensuring our engagement strategy remained firmly grounded in our core belief that those affected by an outcome to a decision have the right to be involved in the decision making process.
