The upgraded Pacific Highway and Wyong Road Intersection opened in November 2017, one year ahead of schedule. Aurecon, NSW Roads and Maritime Services, and contractor Seymour Whyte delivered the upgrade, reducing congestion and improving safety for the 55 000 motorists that use it daily.
The project addressed a history of congestion and incidents by replacing the existing roundabout with traffic lights. Other significant works included duplicating an existing bridge over the Main North Rail Line and improving the shared path network. Digital engineering tools helped to identify and address issues and communicate project details to stakeholders.
This is one of many Pacific Highway projects that Aurecon has contributed to over many years working in the roads and highways sector.
