Project Description

This project will construct approximately 19.5 kilometres of four-lane divided road between Allgomera, south of Warrell Creek, and Nambucca Heads, where it will connect to the Nambucca Heads to Urunga project that is currently under construction. The project, built to Class-M (motorway) standard, includes new grade separated interchanges at Warrell Creek and Bald Hill Road, and a new major crossing of the Nambucca River at Macksville.


The project will improve road safety and economic efficiency by reducing travel times and freight transport costs.

Acciona Ferrovial Joint Venutre was awarded the contract to design and construct the project on 11 July 2014. Major works commenced on 17 December 2014 and are expected to be completed in late 2017.
