THE first section of the first stage of the Lake Macquarie Transport Interchange, at Glendale, will be officially opened to traffic  this Friday at 10am.

Parliamentary Secretary for Planning, the Central Coast and the Hunter, Scot MacDonald, and Lake Macquarie mayor Kay Fraser will officiate.

“This significant regional infrastructure project will improve connectivity between Cardiff and Glendale, a major business and employment zone in the Lower Hunter,” a spokesperson for the council said.

Construction involved extending and realigning Glendale Drive to meet an extended Stockland Drive at a new four-leg roundabout, providing a new access to the Hunter Sports Centre and Stockland Glendale from Main Road, Cardiff.

The LMTI project is jointly funded by the Australian government, the NSW government and Lake Macquarie City Council.
