Pacific Highway intersection upgrades at Kahibah Road and Northcott Drive

Roads and Maritime Services is planning to upgrade the intersections of the Pacific Highway at Kahibah Road and Northcott Drive.

The NSW Government has provided $12 million for the upgrades to improve traffic flow and safety.

Updates and announcements

A contract to develop the environmental assessment for the project has been awarded to Umwelt Australia. Work has now started on the concept design and review of environmental factors.

We will continue to keep stakeholders and the community informed as planning progresses.

Project background

Up to 6000 vehicles per hour travel through the intersections of the Pacific Highway with Northcott Drive and Kahibah Road. As the intersections are located close together, they share congestion and safety issues during busy periods.

We have carried out survey and geotechnical investigations to prepare strategic options for the upgrades.

The NSW Government has provided $1.5 million to continue planning in 2017-18.

Work on the concept design and environmental assessment is under way.

Features and benefits

The upgrades would:

  • improve traffic flow on the Pacific Highway at the intersections of Northcott Drive and Kahibah Road
  • address safety issues at the existing right turn from the Pacific Highway into Northcott Drive
  • improve pedestrian facilities on the Pacific Highway.

Next steps

We have started investigations for the environmental assessment, which we expect to display with the concept design in late-2018.

We will continue to keep stakeholders and the community informed as planning progresses.
