Join the Mid North Coast Group on a tour of the Pacific Highway upgrade from Oxley Highway to Kundabung, constructed by Lend Lease.
Roads and Maritime Services is upgrading about 37 kilometres of the Pacific Highway to a four lane divided highway from north of the Oxley Highway to south of Kempsey. The project is being delivered in two sections - from the Oxley Highway to Kundabung and from Kundabung to Kempsey with early work on the Sancrox interchange. The Australian and NSW governments jointly fund this project.
The $820 million project involves upgrading 23 kilometres of highway between Oxley Highway and Kundabung:-
- Contract awarded to Lend Lease
- Building started in October 2014
- Expected to be open to traffic by the end of 2017.
The project includes building 23 bridges with major river crossings over the Hastings and Wilson rivers and interchanges at Sancrox Road, Blackmans Point Road and Haydons Wharf Road. The project is about 70 per cent complete and expected to open to traffic in late 2017, weather permitting.
Lend Lease will be taking us on a guided tour of the works as they near completion. We will be travelling around the site in a coach. Please be punctual (3pm sharp) as there will be limited time on site. Meeting point - Lend Lease Site Office, Kunderbung community display centre, 7909 Pacific Highway Pembrooke.
Following the site tour, we will be dining at Cassegrain Winery 764 Fernbank Creek Road, Port Macquarie from 6.00pm. During dinner a Lend Lease representative will deliver a presentation on the project.
