Roads and Maritime has finalised the Submissions report for the proposal incorporating feedback and comments from the community with our responses.

The Submissions Report (PDF, 11Mb) is available to download or view as is the June 2019 Community Notification (PDF, 148Kb).

The project will progress to detailed design and we expect to call tenders in the first half of next year to deliver the upgrade.

Construction is expected to start in late 2020 and is anticipated to take up to 12 months to complete.

Project background

Up to 6000 vehicles per hour travel through the intersections of City Road (Pacific Highway), Northcott Drive and Kahibah Road.

The intersections have been identified as ‘pinch points’ meaning motorists experience delays.

As they are close together, the intersections share congestion and safety issues during busy periods.

The NSW Government has provided $700,000 to continue planning in 2018-19.

The proposed work is planned to start in 2020 and take up to 12 months to complete.

Features and benefits

The upgrades would:

  • improve traffic flow on City Road (Pacific Highway) at the intersections of Northcott Drive and Kahibah Road by reducing existing queues
  • address safety issues at the existing right turns from City Road (Pacific Highway) into Northcott Drive and Kahibah Road by extending right turn lanes
  • build new left turn lanes from City Road (Pacific Highway) into Northcott Drive and into Kahibah Road
  • improve pedestrian facilities, including new crossings and footpaths.
