Northern Beaches Hospital road upgrade project

The NSW Government is investing $500 million to upgrade the roads around the new Northern Beaches Hospital with work proposed to be completed in late 2018.

The upgrades will provide customers with a better travel experience, increased capacity on the road network and improved access through the area, including for pedestrians and cyclists.

Ferrovial York Joint Venture (FYJV) has been engaged by Roads and Maritime to carry out the project.

The new bridge takes shape under the arch of the old.
