A spokesperson said the NSW Government allocated $9 million this financial year to progress the project which will improve traffic flow and safety for all road users.
“Roads and Maritime is upgrading the Pacific Highway at Lisarow, between Parsons Road and Ourimbah Street, to two lanes in each direction as well as upgrading the existing traffic lights at The Ridgeway to improve traffic flow and travel times for motorists,” the spokesperson said.
“The upgrade also includes building a new bridge across the rail line to replace the existing narrow bridge near Railway Crescent.”
The spokesperson said the upgrade would also include installing new traffic lights at the Railway Crescent and Tuggerah Street intersections to improve safety for motorists.
“In addition to widening the Pacific Highway and upgrading intersections, work will also involve improving pedestrian and cycle paths along and across the highway,” the spokesperson said.
“The upgrade will improve safety for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists for years to come.”
The spokesperson said Roads and Maritime has asked suitably qualified and resourced contractors capable of delivering this complex civil project to register their interest in tendering on the Pacific Highway upgrade project.
“Work associated with this tender includes widening the existing highway, local road modifications as well as landscaping work,” the spokesperson said.
“Roads and Maritime will shortlist registrations of interest based on tenderer capability before an invitation to tender on the associated work is invited.”
Prospective tenderers are required to complete a Registration of Interest document in full, including any required supporting documentation, and lodging it by 2.30pm on Wednesday 8 November 2017 via the E-Tender website.
