Updates and announcements

A contract has been awarded to Daracon Contractors to build the Pacific Highway upgrade between Ourimbah Street and Parsons Road at Lisarow.

Construction will start in early 2019. We will keep residents and the community updated on work times, details and changed traffic conditions closer to the work starting.

The early work activities carried out by Roads and Maritime in preparation for the main construction have now been completed. This work included site clearing, utility relocations and work on rail infrastructure.

Project background

The NSW Government is investing $178 million to upgrade the Pacific Highway between Ourimbah Street and Parsons Road at Lisarow.

The upgrade will improve traffic flow, travel times and safety for around 30,000 motorists using this 1.6 kilometre section of the highway each day.

Following consideration of community feedback in 2016, the Review of Environmental Factors was determined in February 2017.

As a result of our continued planning and development of the project, Roads and Maritime Services has updated the Review of Environmental Factors to include more details in two Addendum Review of Environmental Factors reports.

A contract was awarded to Daracon Contractors in November 2018 to build the upgrade.
