The proposed Coffs Harbour bypass project will have major benefits for Coffs Harbour. Building or upgrading about 14 kilometers to four-lane road will improve transport efficiency and road safety for local, regional, and interstate road users. The project will save motorists 11 minutes of travel time, bypass up to 12 sets of traffic lights and remove thousands of vehicles from the Coffs Harbour CBD.
The project is a priority for the Australian and NSW governments as the Pacific Highway is a major contributor to Australia’s economy. The bypass will be a key link in this vital piece of the nation’s infrastructure, connecting Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
The project’s objectives of improving road safety, delivering road freight efficiency for heavy vehicles and easing congestion all meet the government’s Future Transport Strategy 2056.
We are seeking approval to construct and operate the Coffs Harbour bypass from south of the Englands Road roundabout to the dual carriageway highway at Sapphire.
