Bulahdelah upgrade

The upgrade of the Pacific Highway at Bulahdelah involved the construction of about 8.6 kilometres of four lane divided road with an eastern bypass of the Bulahdelah township.

Updates and announcements

Operational noise report now available

As part of the conditions of approval for the project, an operational noise report has been prepared by Wilkinson Murray, acoustics and air quality consultants. Operational noise is determined by computer modelling after calibration from direct noise measurements taken once the project is complete.

The results of the Operational Noise Assessment contained in the report show that highway noise levels for the Bulahdelah upgrade are in accordance with the requirements of the ENMM and that the noise mitigation measures (in the form of noise walls and low noise pavements) applied to the project are considered adequate and no further treatments are required to your property.

The Operational Noise Report (PDF, 12MB) is now available to view or download.

Project background

The Bulahdelah upgrade project was approved by the NSW Minister for Planning on 9 July 2007.

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

The upgrade of the Pacific Highway at Bulahdelah involved the construction of about 8.6 kilometres of four lane divided road with an eastern bypass of the Bulahdelah township.
