Coopernook to Herons Creek
This project was opened to traffic in July 2010. The 33 kilometre dual carriageway upgrade generally followed the existing highway and included a western bypass of Moorland, Johns River and a eastern bypass of Kew.
It was jointly funded by the NSW and Australian governments.
Roads and Maritime Services (formerly Roads and Traffic Authority) formed an alliance with Thiess and Parsons Brinckerhoff to design and build the upgrade. New twin bridge were built at the Moorland railway and Stony Creek with existing twin bridges being duplicated at Two Mile Creek, Stewarts River Road, Johns River and Ocean Drive, Kew.
More than 3 million cubic meters of earthworks and 250,000 cubic meters of concrete pavements were used to build the project.
