TYPE: Greenfield

The 127 kilometre M1 Pacific Motorway is a key road corridor between Sydney, the Central Coast, Newcastle and the Hunter regions; it also links the New England and Pacific Highways. There are currently $400 million worth of works planned to upgrade the link.

This project will deliver upgrades to the section of the Motorway between Kariong Interchange and Somersby Interchange. It will cater for the expected increase in traffic forecast as a result of predicted growth in the Central Coast, Hunter Region and North Coast, along with greater freight demand.

Key features of the project include:

  •  repairing sections of the concrete motorway between the Kariong and Somersby interchanges to facilitate construction of an additional lane; 
  •  widening the motorway between the Kariong and Somersby interchanges to provide three lanes in each direction; and
  •  upgrading three of the four ramps at the Kariong Interchange.


The project is currently in the design stage, with Arcadis awarded the design contract in 2015.

The construction contract will be awarded over two phases. The first is the Registrations of Interest (ROI), which closed in November 2016. The second phase will be governed by a separate Request for Tender (RFT), which will be issued to shortlisted applicants following a detailed evaluation process.

Construction is expected to start in 2017 and to be completed in 2020.
