This assessment brief outlines the New South Wales Government's proposal to complete the remaining 40 per cent of works to upgrade the Pacific Highway to a minimum four-lane divided highway between Sydney and Brisbane. The upgrade will deliver substantial improvements in road safety and freight efficiency, travel time and accessibility for regional and local centres. The New South Wales Government is seeking $5.12 billion (in 2010 dollars) in Commonwealth funding for the project.
