Wyong Road & Pacific Highway upgrade at Tuggerah

The NSW Government is providing $84 million for the Pacific Highway and Wyong Road intersection upgrade at Tuggerah. The upgrade involves replacing the existing roundabout with traffic lights to improve traffic flow and safety.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime will be doing six weeks of night work as part of major construction on the Wyong Road upgrade at Tuggerah.

This work will start from Sunday 8 January and will mostly involve asphalting and line marking.

We will make every effort to minimise noise including working in different locations throughout the six weeks. Sound barriers currently installed at the corner of Wyong Road and Pacific Highway will stay in place throughout the work to minimise noise.

There will be temporary traffic changes and traffic control in place each night to direct traffic and ensure each work zone is safe. Access to the Pacific Highway from the roundabout heading south to Kangy Angy will be closed on most nights with a detour in place around Gavenlock Road. Traffic Controllers will be onsite to assist residents.

Project background

Wyong Road is the major road linking the Pacific Motorway (Sydney to Newcastle Freeway) with Wyong, Tuggerah, The Entrance and surrounding coastal suburbs. The roundabout at the intersection of Wyong Road and the Pacific Highway has a history of crashes and traffic is heavily congested during peak hours. Around 55,000 vehicles travel through the intersection each day.

Key features

The upgrade will ease congestion and improve traffic flow along the Pacific Highway and Wyong Road for more reliable travel times during peak periods. It includes:

  • Three lanes in each direction on Wyong Road
  • Three right turn lanes from the Pacific Highway to Wyong Road (to the M1 Pacific Motorway)
  • Two right turn lanes from Wyong Road to the Pacific Highway (to Wyong)
  • Two left turn lanes from Wyong Road  to the Pacific Highway (to Wyong)
  • Building a new bridge beside the existing railway overbridge to accommodate eastbound traffic
  • Extending the existing pedestrian/cycle underpass.

Next steps

The project is scheduled for completion in early 2019.
