Sur­vey to end Pa­cific High­way driver mis­ery

Monthly Chronicle - - News -

Geotech­ni­cal in­ves­ti­ga­tions have be­gun on Pa­cific High­way up­grades which could sig­nal re­lief to driver mis­ery for thou­sands every day.

Mem­ber for Brad­field Paul Fletcher, in whose con­stituency the in­fa­mous snarl ups oc­cur, has an­nounced that as part of the State Gov­ern­ment’s $ 300 mil­lion Ur­ban Roads Pinch Point Pro­gram, key trou­ble spots which may be re­me­di­ated in­clude the High­way be­tween Ray Street and Ku- ring­gai Av­enue in Tur­ra­murra, at Fin­lay Road where it bor­ders War­rawee and Tur­ra­murra, around the Fox Val­ley Road exit onto the High­way at Wahroonga and the High­way at Coo­nan­barra Road and Redleaf Av­enue in Wahroonga.

“Many res­i­dents would agree that a se­ri­ous ex­am­i­na­tion of the con­ges­tion on ma­jor and ar­te­rial roads is long over­due,” said Paul Fletcher, also the Min­is­ter for In­fra­struc­ture.

The 14 weeks of sur­vey work in­volves drilling pits to see what the ground be­neath the ex­ist­ing roads is like and what util­i­ties there are. NSW Roads and Mar­itime Ser­vices is warn­ing of noise and traf­fic changes dur­ing the course of the sur­vey.
