Rokeby Bypass - Proposal


The bypass is proposed to start at Glebe Hill, in the area of the Rokeby Fire station and travel parallel to the east of the current alignment to bypass the main CBD of Rokeby, connecting to the existing road in the vicinity of the Police Academy. The Clarence city council has now zoned Land for the future bypass in accordance with recommendations of the Clarence Plains Outline Development Plan (CPODP) of 2008.

When the state government adopted the CPODP the Minister at that time Graham Sturges gave a commitment to the Clarence City Council to retain the existing Bypass corridor of the Rokeby residential area. In early 2011, the Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources released plans for an upgrade of Rokeby Road to the Fire station
