Have your say on the M1 upgrade from Tuggerah to Doyalson
The community is invited to give feedback on the proposed upgrade of the M1 Pacific Motorway between the Tuggerah and Doyalson interchanges which aims to improve capacity and safety for all road users.
Minister Gay said the NSW Government provided $3 million toward planning for the upgrade. “Roads and Maritime Services is proposing to upgrade a 12 kilometre section of the motorway to three lanes in each direction from Wyong Road at Tuggerah and the Doyalson Link Road to improve road safety and reduce travel times,” Mr Webber said.
“To ensure we get the balance right, we’re inviting community comment on the proposal via the Roads and Maritime website from today, Friday 18th October to Friday 29 November.
“The proposal includes rebuilding a nine kilometre section of the motorway between Wyong River and the Doyalson interchange to improve the road surface. Stormwater drainage would also be installed to improve road safety in wet conditions.
“All feedback received will be considered by Roads and Maritime when finalising the environmental assessment and concept design,” Mr Webber said.
“Roads and Maritime will continue to work with residents and stakeholder groups as the proposal progresses.
