COFFS BYPASS DISPUTE

Claims work could start on the bypass of Coffs Harbour this year have been dismissed as ill informed.

Coffs Harbour MP Andrew Fraser made the comment this morning, however his National Party colleague and Member for Cowper, Luke Hartsuyker, says there is no way the work will begin in 2018.

“well we are not building a chook shed down the backyard, this is a $1.2 to $1.4-billion project, one of the largest infrastructure projects in regional Australia and there is a massive amount of work still to be done.” (runs 12 secs, ends, be done)

Mr Hartsuyker says design works and an environmental impact statement have to be completed before the project can be put out to tender.

He said mobilising a workforce would then take months.
