Pacific Highway upgrade through Wyong town centre

Roads and Maritime is planning to upgrade the Pacific Highway through the Wyong town centre to provide two lanes in each direction between Johnson Road at Tuggerah and Cutler Drive at Wyong. The upgrade would improve traffic flow, travel times and safety for all road users as well as provide for possible future changes to the public transport network.

The NSW Government is investing a total of $9.5 million in 2019/20 and 2020/21 to progress planning for the Pacific Highway upgrade through the Wyong Town Centre.

This money will allow Roads and Maritime to prepare a staged delivery strategy which will involve identifying and comparing delivery options.

The NSW Government’s Future Transport 2056 Strategy was released in February 2018. This document sets out a broader vision for how transport can support growth and the economy of New South Wales in the next 40 years. Roads and Maritime is progressing planning for the Pacific Highway upgrade through Wyong Town Centre in alignment with the principles set out in this plan. This will ensure future investments provide the best outcome for the community.

Roads and Maritime is committed to investing in improvements along the Pacific Highway through the Wyong Town Centre, recognising its importance as a hub for local business, employment and public transport.

Roads and Maritime appreciates the significant community feedback provided to date and the strong support for improving mobility and amenity in and around Wyong Town Centre.

We will keep the community updated as this planning continues.

Project information

The Pacific Highway is the main route through Wyong Town Centre and is a major urban arterial road connecting the northern suburbs of the Central Coast. It is currently a single lane in each direction through Wyong.

Wyong and surrounding suburbs have experienced a large increase in the volume of traffic in recent years due to sustained urban growth across the Central Coast region.

In early 2013 after an independent review, it was confirmed the upgrade would be along the existing highway route.

Planning and design is funded by the NSW Government.

  • Improve safety for all road users, including cyclists and pedestrians
  • Improve traffic flow to provide reliable road access to and through Wyong Town Centre
  • Provide a road environment that maintains as far as practicable the town’s identity while providing opportunities for future revitalisation and growth
  • Ensure the highway upgrade is compatible with current and possible future public transport services
  • Provide improved facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.

Roads and Maritime is investigating better ways to deliver any upgrades, to minimise the impact to road users and the community.

After preparation of a staged delivery strategy, Roads and Maritime plans to use the funding allocated to start detail design for the project.

Detail design is expected to start in the second half of 2020.

We will keep the community updated as this planning continues.
