The NSW Government is investing $13.5 million to upgrade the intersections of City Road (Pacific Highway) at Kahibah Road and Northcott Drive to improve traffic flow and safety.
AUG 2021Work to start on intersection upgrades
Transport for NSW recently awarded a contract to Robson Civil to carry out the City Road (Pacific Highway) intersection upgrades at Kahibah Road and Northcott Drive. We will start work on Monday 9 August and expect to complete the project by late 2022, weather permitting.
We will be working from Monday to Friday between 7am and 6pm, and Saturdays between 8am and 1pm, weather permitting. Some work will also be required outside normal project hours for the safety of workers and road users, and to minimise traffic delays.More information

Up to 6000 vehicles per hour travel through the intersections of City Road (Pacific Highway), Northcott Drive and Kahibah Road.
The intersections have been identified as ‘pinch points’ meaning motorists experience delays.
As they are close together, the intersections share congestion and safety issues during busy periods.
The upgrades will:
- improve traffic flow on City Road (Pacific Highway) at the intersections of Northcott Drive and Kahibah Road by reducing existing queues
- address safety issues at the existing right turns from City Road (Pacific Highway) into Northcott Drive and Kahibah Road by extending right turn lanes
- build new left turn lanes from City Road (Pacific Highway) into Northcott Drive and into Kahibah Road
- improve pedestrian facilities, including new crossings and footpaths.
We will start work in August 2021 and expect to complete the project by late 2022, weather permitting.
