We are upgrading about 37 kilometres of the Pacific Highway to four lane divided highway from north of the Oxley Highway to south of Kempsey. The project is being delivered in two sections - from the Oxley Highway to Kundabung and from Kundabung to Kempsey with early work on the Sancrox interchange.
The $675 million project involved upgrading 26.5 kilometres of highway. The project included building 20 new bridges, a new interchange at Stuarts Point Road and installing safe, modern rest areas on both sides of the highway at Clybucca. The project opened to traffic on 16 May 2016.
The $830 million project involves upgrading 20 kilometres of highway. The project includes building 15 bridges, new interchanges at Warrell Creek and Bald Hill Road and access ramps at North Macksville. The project is about 48 per cent complete and expected to open to traffic in 2017.
The $780 million project involved upgrading 22 kilometres of four lane divided highway. The upgrade includes 37 bridges, two new interchanges to the north of Nambucca Heads and at Ballards Road, an upgrade to the existing Waterfall Way interchange at Raleigh. The project opened on 22 July 2016 with finishing work to follow over the coming months.
