New section of Pacific Highway at Lisarow ready for traffic
27 August 2021
The duplication of the Pacific Highway at Lisarow is taking another step forward, with traffic about to be shifted onto a new section of road.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said work is progressing well on the NSW Government’s $178 million duplication of the highway between Ourimbah Street and Parsons Road.
“Next week, the project team will be moving traffic onto a newly built 450-metre section of highway between The Ridgeway and Parsons Road,” Mr Crouch said.
“Opening this section will allow new northbound lanes to be built, while other work nearby includes upgrading the intersection at the Pacific Highway and The Ridgeway.”
Motorists will be diverted onto the new section of road on the night of Tuesday, 31 August, weather permitting.
To reduce impacts to motorists, asphalting work will be carried out over three nights from Monday, 30 August to Wednesday, 1 September near the intersection of the Pacific Highway and The Ridgeway, with detours in place between 8pm and 5am via Macdonalds Road and Nexus Way.
Lane closures and traffic control will be in place on the Pacific Highway during work hours, with a temporary 40km/h reduced speed limit in place for the safety of motorists and workers.
Motorists are advised to allow extra travel time, drive to the conditions, and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
“We are working hard to provide two lanes in each direction on this 1.6-kilometre section of the Pacific Highway to improve traffic flow, travel times and safety for the 30,000 motorists who travel along this road every single day,” Mr Crouch said.
