Work is progressing on the Pacific Highway duplication at Lisarow

Pacific Highway duplication at Lisarow

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.

A key feature of the upgrade will be a new rail bridge across the main Sydney to Newcastle rail line.

Regular project hours are between 7am and 6pm on weekdays and 8am and 1pm on Saturdays.

Lane closures and traffic control will be in place during the work and may affect travel times. There may be short term intermittent stops and a temporary 40 km/h reduced speed limit will be in place through the work zones for the safety of motorists and workers.

APR 2022Key milestone reached on the Pacific Highway at Lisarow

Lisarow’s old rail bridge was successfully dismantled during a scheduled rail shutdown in March to make way for the second half of the new bridge. A key feature of the upgrade, once complete the new bridge will provide two lanes of traffic in each direction.

Work is also continuing on upgrading The Ridgeway intersection traffic lights. The completed project will also feature traffic lights at the Railway Crescent and Macdonalds Road intersections, and improved access to parking at Lisarow Station.

Please see the latest project update video below that highlights the work that was complete during the meticulously planned operation.

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 Review of Environmental Factors and Species Impact Statement.

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.
