Wang Wauk to Bundacree Creek
The 4.8km upgrade provides dual carriageway conditions (133.7 to 138.5km north of Newcastle), with improvements to the intersection with Wang Wauk Road, and the provision of U-turn facilities and parking bays. The work has improved road safety and travel time for motorists, particularly during holiday periods.
Preliminary planning and community consultation commenced in October 1996, with construction commencing in August 1997.
All major project work was completed and opened to dual carriageway conditions on 10 December 1998. Construction was undertaken by Roads and Maritime Services (formerly Roads and Traffic Authority).
The project involved:
- Duplication of the existing single carriageway to provide dual carriageways over the project length;
- Improvements to the intersection with Wang Wauk Road; and
- Provision of U-turn facilities and parking bays at appropriate locations. In May 1998, traffic was diverted onto a 1.8 km section of the new northbound carriageway. This enabled rehabilitation and reconstruction to be undertaken on the existing highway, which is now the new southbound carriageway.
The project was jointly funded between the NSW State and Commonwealth Governments.
