Work progresses on Warrell Ck to Nambucca Heads Project
The Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey MP, has announced the opening of a new bridge on Albert Drive as part of the Warrell Creek to Nambucca Heads Pacific Highway project.
This is the second of eight new bridges over the Pacific Highway to be opened since major work started in late 2014.
Mrs Pavey said the new bridge forms part of the Australian and NSW governments jointly funded $830 million Warrell Creek to Nambucca Heads Pacific Highway upgrade.
“The new bridge has been built to connect Albert Drive to the existing Pacific Highway at Donnellyville and crosses over the future Pacific Highway alignment being built,” she said.
“This new bridge across the future Pacific Highway alignment has been opened and motorists on the existing highway can access Albert Drive via the new intersection about 700 metres south of the existing Albert Drive intersection.
“Repair work was also carried out on Albert Drive near Rosewood Road throughout January for the benefit of motorists.
“With the new bridge now open, the northern connection of Albert Drive to the existing Pacific Highway has now been permanently closed.
“Access to Rosewood Road and the Pacifico community display centre continues to be via Albert Drive south and the school bus pick up and drop off point in Albert Drive will remain unchanged,” Mrs Pavey said.
Roads and Maritime thanks motorists for their patience while this important work is carried out.
