MAR 2020Upcoming traffic changes

Motorists are advised of changed traffic conditions from Monday 16 March at Railway Crescent as work continues.

There will be no right turn onto the Pacific Highway from Railway Crescent on weekdays between 7am and 5pm from Monday 16 March.

These changes are expected to be in place for up to three weeks.

Motorists wanting to travel south on the highway from Railway Crescent are able to turn around at the Walmsley turn around bay on the Pacific Highway.

Lane closures and traffic control will be in place during work hours and may affect travel times.

A temporary 40 km/h reduced speed limit will be in place through the work zone for the safety of motorists and workers.

The changes are required for the safety of all road users and workers as building work continues on the Pacific Highway duplication.

Pedestrians walking between Ourimbah Street and Railway Crescent are advised they will be detoured via Lisarow Street, through Lisarow Cemetery, Dora Street to Railway Crescent from Monday 16 March

A new path and lighting has been installed to ensure safety for pedestrians.

These changes are required to allow work to continue on the new northbound road and retaining wall on the western side of the highway.  

Dora Street was closed to all through traffic at its intersection with Railway Crescent (eastern end) on 8 April 2019. The closure will be in place for about two years to allow work to continue on the upgrade. Pedestrian access will be maintained during the closure.

Roads users will have to use a detour (PDF, 701Kb) via Dora Street, Cambourn Avenue and Excelsior Street to access Railway Crescent.

Project information

The NSW Government is investing $178 million to upgrade the Pacific Highway between Ourimbah Street and Parsons Road at Lisarow.

The upgrade will improve traffic flow, travel times and safety for around 30,000 motorists using this 1.6 kilometre section of the highway each day.

Following consideration of community feedback in 2016, the Review of Environmental Factors was determined in February 2017.

View or download the October 2016 Submissions Report.

As a result of our continued planning and development of the project, Roads and Maritime Services has updated the Review of Environmental Factors to include more details in two Addendum Review of Environmental Factors reports.

A contract was awarded to Daracon Contractors in November 2018 to build the upgrade.

Key benefits of the upgrade include:

  • Improved traffic flow and travel times on the Pacific Highway
  • Improved connections to the local road network
  • Improved safety for all road users
  • Improved pedestrian and cycle network.
  • Two lanes in each direction on the Pacific Highway
  • A new bridge over the rail line, replacing the existing narrow bridge near Railway Crescent
  • New traffic lights at the Railway Crescent and Tuggerah Street (formerly Macdonalds Road) intersections with the Pacific Highway
  • Upgrading the existing traffic lights at The Ridgeway
  • Improved pedestrian and cycle paths along and across the highway
  • Improved access to the parking area at Lisarow Railway Station.

Standard work hours will be from 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday and from 8am to 1pm on Saturdays. We will be required to work outside of normal working hours at times, including at night from 7pm to 5am.

The ability to work on the new four-lane bridge over the rail line is limited when scheduled train services are running. During scheduled rail line trackwork shutdowns, we may work continually throughout the day and night to reduce the overall duration of construction.

Major work started in February 2019.

We will continue to keep stakeholders and the community informed as the project progresses.
