Upgrade of Pacific Highway at Lisarow

Monday, 11 July 2016

The community is encouraged to provide feedback on the proposed upgrade of the Pacific Highway between Ourimbah Street and Parsons Road at Lisarow.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Scot MacDonald MLC said the NSW Government had allocated $7 million this 2016/17 financial year to continue planning for the upgrade, which would involve widening the Pacific Highway to two lanes in each direction between Ourimbah Street and Parsons Road.

“The Pacific Highway is a major link between Gosford and the M1 Pacific Motorway and is a vital connection for motorists traveling through business districts and residential suburbs within the Central Coast,” Mr MacDonald said.

“Upgrading the 1.6 kilometre section of highway between Parsons Road and Ourimbah Street would improve traffic and safety for the more than 30,000 vehicles using this section of road each day.”

“Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community for providing comments on the concept design and draft Review of Environmental Factors in February and March last year.”

Mr MacDonald said the community could now provide comments on the updated design and Review of Environmental Factors which includes a Species Impact Statement to reduce the impact to the threatened Melaleuca Biconvexa flora species.

“The community can view the proposal on Thursday 11 August between 4pm and 7pm at Lisarow Plaza outside Coles on the corner of the Pacific Highway and Parsons Road at Lisarow,” Mr MacDonald said.

Have a say before comments close at 5pm on Friday 19 August via email at central.coast.office@rms.nsw.gov.au, in writing to Daryl Fidge, Roads and Maritime Services, Locked Bag 2030, Newcastle NSW 2300 or by phoning (02) 4379 7020 during business hours.

Feedback will be considered when finalising the proposed upgrade and the community will be updated as the project progresses.
