Muswellbrook Mines Affected Road Network Strategy
Posted: 23rd October 2020
Muswellbrook is at the heart of a major coal resource. Continued expansion of mining activity is impacting accessibility and connectivity of road the network. Bitzios Consulting was engaged by Muswellbrook Shire Council to prepare a new Mine Affected Road Network Strategy for the LGA. The strategy updates the previous 2015 MARNS so that it is current with changes to mining activity, road upgrades, recent planning and transport strategies and the transport needs of the community. This MARNS review looks beyond the mine affected roads towards a road network plan that can work with the mining activity and support other industry and community needs for convenient and connected access and mobility and provide a network that is more resilient, now and into the future.
