Hon Barry O’Farrell MP
Premier of NSW; Minister for Western Sydney
Work to upgrade the F3 Pacific Highway interchange at Wahroonga is progressing well with stage one of the upgrade completed today, NSW Premier and Member for Ku-ring-gai Barry O’Farrell announced today.
“The NSW Government provided $5 million for the project which will reduce traffic congestion and delays,” Mr O’Farrell said.
“The connection between the F3 and the highway is often a point of frustration for motorists who can experience long delays and queues during peak periods,” he said.
“Stage one of the project involved extending the two northbound lanes of the on ramp. Some minor work will continue in the area.
“Stage two of the upgrade involves widening the southbound off ramp and will start in July, weather permitting.
“The work includes clearing and replacing landscaping to build a retaining wall for the southbound off ramp. Improvements will also be made to pedestrian ramps, road markings, lighting and the road surface.”
To minimise traffic disruption work will be carried out at night from Sunday to Thursday between 8pm and 5am.
Mr O’Farrell said every effort will be made to reduce the impact of noise on nearby residents and businesses.
Residents are not expected to be affected by increased noise from the road when work is completed.
The upgrade is expected to be completed in December, weather permitting.
