Pacific Highway upgrade between Ourimbah Street and Glen Road moves to next stage
13 July 2015
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Scot MacDonald MLC, said today that plans are progressing for the Pacific Highway upgrade between Ourimbah Street at Lisarow and Glen Road at Ourimbah with tenders now invited to carry out major building work.
The NSW Government allocated $100 million in January this year to build the upgrade.
“The upgrade involves widening the Pacific Highway to provide two lanes in each direction to improve traffic flow, travel times and safety for around 29,000 motorists using this section of the highway daily,” Mr MacDonald said.
“Work on the upgrade also includes installing traffic lights at the Ourimbah and Teralba streets and Walmsley Road pedestrian crossings and new bridges over Cut Rock Creek.”
“Pedestrian and cyclist safety will also be improved with a new shared path to be installed along the western side of the highway.”
“Roads and Maritime thanks the community for feedback to the concept design and review of environmental factors (REF) display in June 2011.”
“Prequalified contractors are now invited to submit tenders for major building work which is expected to start in the second half of this year,” Mr MacDonald said.
