Upgrade of Pacific Highway and Manns Road

Monday, 19 September 2016

Roads and Maritime Services invites the community to comment on the proposed design to upgrade the Pacific Highway and Manns Road between Lisarow and Narara.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Scot MacDonald said the NSW Government allocated $2 million in 2016/17 to plan for the future upgrade between Parsons Road at Lisarow and Narara Creek Road at Narara.

“There have been several changes made to the design since the 2014 public display,” Mr MacDonald said.

“These changes improve access to local roads and will improve journey times and safety for motorists.”

“Around 30,000 cars use this road daily and the proposed 4.7 kilometre upgrade will provide two lanes in each direction with a central median.”

“New bridges will be built on Manns Road across Narara Creek and the railway line and 11 key intersections will be upgraded.”

“The upgrade will also improve pedestrian and cycle amenities with the provision of shared pathways.”

Mr MacDonald said the proposal is part of a broader strategy to upgrade the Pacific Highway on the Central Coast in four key stages.

Three community drop in sessions will be held at the Niagara Park Stadium at 16 Washington Avenue between 4pm and 7pm on Thursday 13 October, Tuesday 18 October and Thursday 20 October to discuss the proposed design.

The community is invited to provide comment by Friday 28 October this year.
