Project Description
In 2009 Roads and Maritime Services carried out extensive investigations and community consultation in order to finalise a preferred corridor for the upgrade of the Pacific Highway between Narara and Lisarow. The preferred route along the existing Pacific Highway was approved by the NSW Minister for Roads and Ports in February 2013.

Key features of the project included:

  • Two lanes in each direction on the Pacific Highway
  • A new bridge structures over Narara Creek and over railway Manns Road Intersection
  • Upgrade to traffic control signals at 10 intersections along the route
  • Improved pedestrian and cycle paths along and across the highway
  • Increased traffic capacity of the Pacific Highway to improve traffic flow and reduce travel times/congestion.

Hillard Civil was contracted in a technical advisory role to assist RTA/RMS liaising with an external consultant in the preliminary route options study. On completion of this project phase, Hillard Civil was engaged to further develop the 4 corridors flagged as possible routes to a level of design suitable for traffic modelling and cost estimation. On announcement of the preferred route Hillard Civil was reengaged to further develop the preferred alignment. Simon Cusack was engaged to prepare tender documents for the preparation of concept design and environmental assessment and to manage the tender assessment process. Cost estimating and cost assessment across options was undertaken by Mark Raven.
