Foundations have been laid and construction is now underway on the $2.1 billion M1 Pacific Motorway extension in New South Wales.
The M1 Pacific Motorway and Pacific Highway are critical links in the National Land Transport Network and among the busiest transport corridors in Australia.
It will feature a 15-kilometre extension of the motorway, removing five sets of traffic lights and cutting nine minutes from travel times during peak periods. It will also deliver a 2.6-kilometre viaduct over the Hunter River and floodplain, the Main North Rail Line, and the New England Highway.
- Construction wraps up on Metro Tunnel’s Arden Station
- Construction, design partners appointed for new Paradise Dam wall
- Stations taking shape on Cross River Rail
These works aim to increase the flood immunity traffic flow, accessibility and safety of the connection.
The Federal and State governments have contributed $1.68 billion and $420 million to the project respectively.
The extension is expected to open to the public in 2028.
