M1 Motorway widening from Tuggerah to Doyalson to begin in 2017

Roads and Maritime is upgrading the M1 Pacific Motorway between the Tuggerah and Doyalson interchanges to improve traffic flow and safety. The upgrade involves widening the motorway to provide three lanes in each direction and rebuilding the roadway to provide a smoother and more durable surface.

Major construction is due to start in 2017 and RMS will provide more information to residents and stakeholders as the project progresses.

The 12 kilometre section between Wyong Road Tuggerah and the Doyalson Link Road is currently two lanes in each direction. It has the highest volume of traffic of the remaining four lane sections between Sydney and the end of the motorway at Beresfield. This motorway is used by through traffic and traffic north of Wyong accessing the Central Coast.

Key features and benefits include increased traffic capacity along the motorway, more reliable travel times, improved road safety and a smoother road surface.
