Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) are progressing plans for the Pacific Highway upgrade at Lisarow, with registrations of interest to tender for the project now invited.
A spokesperson for RMS said the NSW Government allocated $9 million this financial year to progress the project, which will improve traffic flow and safety.
“Roads and Maritime is upgrading the Pacific Hwy at Lisarow, between Parsons Rd and Ourimbah St, to two lanes in each direction, as well as upgrading the existing traffic lights at The Ridgeway, to improve traffic flow and travel times for motorists,” the spokesperson said.
“The upgrade also includes building a new bridge across the rail line to replace the existing narrow bridge near Railway Cres.”
The spokesperson said the upgrade would also include installing new traffic lights at the Railway Cres and Tuggerah St intersections to improve safety for motorists.
“In addition to widening the Pacific Hwy and upgrading intersections, work will also involve improving pedestrian and cycle paths along and across the highway.
Roads and Maritime has asked suitably qualified and resourced contractors capable of delivering this complex civil project to register their interest in tendering on the Pacific Highway upgrade project.
“Work associated with this tender includes widening the existing highway, local road modifications as well as landscaping work.
“Roads and Maritime will shortlist registrations of interest based on tenderer capability before an invitation to tender on the associated work is invited.”
