Australian, NSW governments seek contractors for M1 Pacific Motorway extension

by Kali Persall

The Australian and NSW governments have invited prequalified contractors to register their interest to build the M1 Pacific Motorway extension to Raymond Terrace under two collaborative design and construct contracts.

The project includes 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) of dual carriageway and provides motorway access from the existing road network from four new interchanges. It also includes a 2.6-kilometer (1.6-mile) viaduct over the Hunter River and floodplain, the Main North Rail Line and the New England Highway. It would also provide new bridge crossings over local waterways at Tarro and Raymond Terrace, and an overpass for Masonite Road at Heatherbrae.

The governments said the project addresses a key national motorway “missing link” between Sydney and Brisbane. Once complete, the extension would remove up to 25,000 vehicles a day from key congestion and merge points along this corridor.
