Flood stories about highway and water flows wanted: Transport for NSW

If you live near the Pacific Highway, Transport for NSW wants to hear your story about the February and March floods.

Transport for NSW north region director Anna Zycki said feedback from residents would help inform the study into understanding how water flows interacted with the highway in the Richmond catchment.

People can share their story online. Stories can be detailed or brief.

Individual responses will be private so people can feel free to be open and honest in their responses, Ms Zycki said.

Survey results would go to a hydrologist to inform investigations into the flooding.

“This study is separate from the NSW flood inquiry and is focused solely on the interaction between the new Woolgoolga to Ballina upgrade and neighbouring communities,” she said.

“All responses will be considered. If people believe the motorway affected the flooding, details on how they feel it impacted are welcome.”
