Project background

Roads and Maritime carried out extensive investigations and community consultation to adopt the preferred route for the upgrade of the Pacific Highway between Narara and Lisarow along the existing highway. Roads and Maritime has prepared an updated preferred design for the section of road between Parsons Road at Lisarow and Narara Creek Road at Narara. This preferred design considers community comments received during the previous public displays.

Project benefits

Key benefits of the preferred option once completed include:

  • Improved traffic flow and more consistent travel times on the Pacific Highway and Manns Road
  • Improved access to connecting roads
  • Improved safety for all road users
  • Improved pedestrian and cycle network.
