Pacific Highway and Redleaf Avenue, Wahroonga.

Pacific Highway upgrades between Turramurra and Wahroonga

The NSW Government has committed over $825 million to pinch point projects which would ease congestion, reduce traffic delays and improve travel times on Sydney’s major roads.

The NSW Government is funding improvements at intersections on the Pacific Highway at Fox Valley Road, Redleaf Avenue and Coonanbarra Road. The Australian Government and NSW Government are jointly funding upgrades at the Pacific Highway and Finlay Road. The project is expected to be completed in late 2022.

Project information

Around 60,000 vehicles a day travel on Pacific Highway between Turramurra and Wahroonga. The intersections of the Pacific Highway with Redleaf Avenue and Coonanbarra Road, Fox Valley Road and Finlay Road have been identified as pinch points, or bottlenecks, on this busy corridor. These intersections service surrounding residential, commercial and industrial areas, are part of the major arterial road to Sydney’s central business district from the north western suburbs and are key to accessing the Central Coast via the M1 Pacific Motorway.

We will upgrade these intersections, widening the Pacific Highway to provide three continuous northbound lanes and adjusting the turning movements to and from the cross streets. This will provide northbound motorists savings on travel time particularly in the afternoon peak, better traffic flow through the intersections and provide safer road conditions along the Pacific Highway.

We have engaged with the community in September-October 2018 on the project and after considering all responses, along with the project’s objectives, we have decided to:

Pacific Highway at Redleaf Avenue and Coonanbarra Road

At this intersection we will:

  • widen the western side of Pacific Highway to provide three continuous northbound lanes
  • install traffic lights at the intersection at Redleaf Avenue, including adding pedestrian crossings on the northern and western sides of the intersection
  • ban the right turn from Pacific Highway northbound onto Coonanbarra Road and convert the existing right turn lane into a northbound through lane
  • change the alignment of the existing right turn lane from Pacific Highway northbound onto Redleaf Avenue
  • ban right turns from Redleaf Avenue onto Pacific Highway northbound
  • create an additional left turn lane from Redleaf Avenue onto Pacific Highway southbound.

Pacific Highway at Fox Valley Road

At this intersection we will:

  • widen the western side of Pacific Highway to provide three continuous northbound lanes
  • provide a dedicated left turn lane from Pacific Highway northbound onto Fox Valley Road
  • extend the dedicated right turn lane from Pacific Highway southbound onto Fox Valley Road
  • widen the raised median on Pacific Highway northbound, north and south of Fox Valley Road
  • ban the right turn from Marshall Avenue onto Pacific Highway southbound.

Pacific Highway at Finlay Road

This intersection upgrade is part of a $240 million investment by the Australian and NSW Governments to fast‑track 11 congestion-busting projects as part of the plan to stimulate the economy as it recovers from the COVID‑19.

At this intersection we will:

  • provide three continuous northbound lanes
  • ban the right turn from Pacific Highway southbound onto Finlay Road
  • ban the right turn from Finlay Road onto Pacific Highway southbound.

The upgrade benefits include:

  • northbound travel time savings
  • improved traffic flow and efficiency at the intersections
  • reduced queue lengths and delays at the intersections
  • improved road safety along the corridor through removal of right turn movements at Finlay Road, Marshall Avenue and Coonanbarra Road
  • improved pedestrian and road user safety at the intersection of the Pacific Highway and Redleaf Avenue by installing traffic lights and adding signalised pedestrian crossings on the northern and western side of the intersection
  • improved road safety at the intersections of the Pacific Highway and  Fox Valley Road, Redleaf Avenue and Coonanbarra Road by realigning the curve of the road and traffic lanes.

During July – September 2021, we will work on the Pacific Highway at Redleaf Avenue and Fox Valley Road to continue private property adjustments work, utilities relocation, traffic signal works and road pavement work such as concreting and asphalting.

We will inform the community as the project progresses.
