Pacific Highway upgrade opens 1


New four-lane stretch of road on Pacific Highway to open tomorrow

A new four-lane stretch of road on the Pacific Highway connecting to a number of existing local routes will open tomorrow.

The joint-government funded 7.5km of new highway between Bulahdelah and Nerong will open 8am tomorrow.

Federal Minister for Infrastructure and Transport says the four lane divided road will connect the highway to Myall River Road and stretches from Grey Gum Gully to 3km south of Bulahdelah.

The new highway also connects to Viney Creek Road West, Viney Creek Road East, Whimbrel Drive and Myall River Road.

Albanese says the new lanes are the latest section of the highway between Karuah and Bulahdelah to open to traffic.

"The $262 million upgrade is jointly funded by the New South Wales and federal governments and is being progressively opened with completion expected in mid October, weather permitting," he says.

The upgrade is part of the 23km project which NSW Minister for Transport David Campbell says starts north of Myall Way and ends south of Booral Road.

"The completed upgrade involves construction of seven new twin bridges and rest areas on the northbound carriageway at Nerong Waterholes and the southbound carriageway at Browns Flat," he says.
