Pacific Highway upgrade through Wyong Town Centre


Project overview

The Australian Government and NSW Government are investing $420 million to upgrade the Pacific Highway through the Wyong Town Centre.

The project will provide two lanes in each direction from Johnson Road at Tuggerah through Wyong Town Centre, and replace the Wyong River road bridge with two new road bridges.

The upgrade will improve traffic flow, travel times and safety for all road users as well as provide for future improvements to the public transport network.

Project information


The Pacific Highway is the main route through Wyong town centre and is a major urban arterial road connecting the northern suburbs of the Central Coast. It is currently a single lane in each direction through Wyong.

Wyong and surrounding suburbs have experienced a large increase in the volume of traffic in recent years due to sustained urban growth across the Central Coast region.

In early 2013 after an independent review, it was confirmed the upgrade would be along the existing highway route.

Since 2013, Transport for NSW has undertaken extensive community consultation to determine and address the impacts of the upgrade on the surrounding area, including on the existing rail corridor, on-street parking, commuter parking and heritage buildings.

The NSW Government has already spent $32 million towards planning for the Pacific Highway upgrade through the town centre, including property acquisition.

Work is already underway to make way for this major upgrade – Transport has completed some early demolition of existing buildings and acquired the majority of properties needed.

Additional traffic surveys have also been carried out to understand the current traffic volumes, pedestrian, and cyclist movements in the project area.


  • Improve safety for all road users, including cyclists and pedestrians
  • Improve traffic flow to provide reliable road access to and through Wyong town Centre
  • Provide a road environment that maintains as far as practicable the town’s identity while providing opportunities for future revitalisation and growth
  • Ensure the highway upgrade is compatible with current and future public transport services
  • Provide improved facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.

Next steps

Transport for NSW is continuing planning for the delivery of the project.

We will keep the community updated as the project progresses.
