    Pacific Highway Upgrade: Warrell Creek-Nambucca Heads Section

    ACCIONA Infrastructure, as part of the Pacifico Joint Venture, is responsible for the design and construction of the $420 million Pacific Highway Upgrade between Warrell Creek and Nambucca Heads in New South Wales, Australia.

    The upgrade of the section of highway between Warrell Creek and Nambucca Heads involves:

    Design and construction of 19.5km of new dual carriageway.

    Two separate-level interchanges at Warrell Creek and Bald Hill Road, south of Macksville.

    The building of longitudinal bridges across Upper Warrell Creek, Williamson Creek, Warrell Creek, Nambucca River floodplain and Nambucca River.

    Bridges over Rosewood Road, Albert Drive, Scotts Heads Quarry access road, Bald Hill Road, Old Coast Road South, Mattick Road and Old Coast Road North, and an underpass at Cockburns Lane.

    The Pacifico JV is working with the federal department of Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) to develop and implement innovative and efficient design solutions that reduce the overall construction and operations budget.

     

    BENEFITS

    The project is part of the larger Warrell Creek-Urunga Pacific Highway upgrade approved in July 2011 and is jointly funded by the state and federal governments.

    Once complete, the upgrade will improve road safety and relieve the seasonal traffic congestion that currently clogs the area.
