Project background

The NSW Government is investigating Pacific Highway upgrades as part of its $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce congestion and improve travel times on Sydney's busiest corridors.

Roads and Maritime Services is delivering this project to ease congestion, deliver reliable travel times and improve safety for road users on the Pacific Highway between Turramurra and Wahroonga. Currently, motorists experience heavy congestion, slow travel times and delays when travelling between Turramurra and Wahroonga, particularly during the afternoon peak period.

Roads and Maritime proposes to widen the Pacific Highway to provide three continuous northbound lanes and maintain the three continuous southbound lanes along this section of the busy corridor. Road widening and other proposed improvements would provide significant benefits for the 60,000 motorists who use the Pacific Highway every day, particularly in the afternoon peak for motorists travelling northbound.

Project benefits

Upgrade benefits include:

  • northbound travel time savings
  • improved traffic flow and efficiency at the intersections
  • reduced queue lengths and delays at the intersections
  • improved road safety along the corridor through removal of right turn movements at Finlay Road, Marshall Avenue and Coonanbarra Road
  • improved pedestrian and road user safety at the intersection of the Pacific Highway and Redleaf Avenue by removing the southbound slip lane and providing a pedestrian refuge on Redleaf Avenue
  • improved road safety at the intersections of the Pacific Highway at Fox Valley Road, and the Pacific Highway at Coonanbarra Road and Redleaf Avenue, by realigning the curve of the road and traffic lanes.
