The NSW Government is investing $12 million to upgrade the intersections of City Road (Pacific Highway) at Kahibah Road and Northcott Drive to improve traffic flow and safety.
MAR 2020Contract awarded for detailed design
The detailed design contract has been awarded to GHD Pty Ltd.
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 upgrades will:
- 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.
We will continue to keep stakeholders and the community informed as the project progresses.
After the detailed design phase we expect to call tenders during 2020 to deliver the upgrade. Construction is expected to take up to 12 months to complete.
