Following from the Main Roads indicates a developer has taken matters into their own hands and closed a part of the Principal Shared Path (PSP) that runs north – south along the Mitchell Freeway. The closed path is north of Hutton Street where there is a housing development going on.
From the Main Roads:
It appears that the closure has been put in place with out our knowledge, by the developers of the Princeton Estate. The developers are upgrading the PSP as part of the new housing estate in the area. A closure of this nature should have been approved by Main Roads prior to the implementation to ensure that we could have notified the public and set up appropriate detours.
The PSP will be closed for several months while the upgrade takes place and once completed will be a far superior path then the original path. Main Roads have requested Traffic Management Plans from the developer which will be reviewed and any changes necessary will be made.
If you have any further questions regarding the closure please contact me on the number below.
