Project overview

Major building work is set to start on this section of the upgrade. Once complete this upgrade will link the Sapphire to Woolgoolga project to the south and the Halfway Creek to Glenugie project to the north, providing 14 kilometres of divided roadway. It is expected that work on Woolgoolga to Halfway Creek section will be finished in 2017.

OHL and York Joint Venture will partner to deliver the section of upgrade between Woolgoolga and Halfway Creek.

The key features of the Woolgoolga to Halfway Creek upgrade include a 300 metre long twin bridge over the Corindi floodplain to allow flood waters to pass under the highway as well as bridges over the highway at Sherwood Creek Road and Kangaroo Trail Road for local road access.

The upgrade is jointly funded by the Australian and NSW governments.
