Kooragang - duplication of Tourle Street and Cormorant Road

Roads and Maritime Services upgraded Tourle Street and Cormorant Road at Kooragang to improve traffic flow and cater for future traffic growth.

The project opened to traffic in June 2018.

Project Information

Roads and Maritime duplicated 3.8 kilometres of Tourle Street and Cormorant Road between Industrial Drive, Mayfield West and Egret Street, Kooragang. The upgrade, including the construction of a second bridge over the Hunter River, will improve traffic flow and cater for future traffic growth.

Kooragang Island is home to a major industrial and employment centre in NSW and is part of the world's largest coal export port.

Tourle Street and Cormorant Road form the main corridor connecting Kooragang Island to Newcastle and the southern section of the Port of Newcastle. The road is also the main transport corridor connecting Newcastle with Newcastle Airport and Port Stephens. About 33,000 vehicles use the corridor each day, including more than 3000 heavy vehicles.

Key features included:

  • Duplicating 3.8 kilometres of the road between Industrial Drive, Mayfield West and Egret Street, Kooragang to provide two lanes in each direction
  • A new two lane bridge on the western side of the existing bridge
  • 2.5 metre shoulders along Cormorant Road to cater for on-road cyclists
  • Minimising impact on the Long Pond by mainly widening the road on the southern side of the existing Cormorant Road
  • Maintaining access to existing businesses along the corridor
  • Catering for future industrial development on Kooragang Island next to the existing road.
