The upgrade now includes 22 kilometres of four-lane divided road, including two new interchanges north of Nambucca Heads and Ballards Road and an upgrade to the existing Waterfall Way interchange at Raleigh.

The project also features 37 bridges, including 14 twin highway bridges and six highway overpass bridges. The largest bridge on the project will carry traffic over the Kalang River.

“I’m extremely proud we have delivered this critical upgrade of the Pacific Highway, in conjunction with the NSW Government,” said Craig Laslett, Managing Director of Lendlease Engineering, in a statement.

“The completion of this section of the highway provides a new four-lane divided highway that separates local traffic from highway movements, and bypasses the township of Urunga, making the highway safer for all motorists.”
