A joint venture between John Holland and Gamuda Australia has been selected by Transport for NSW to deliver the M1 Pacific Motorway extension to Raymond Terrace Southern Package – a key missing link in one of the country’s busiest transport corridors.

The $1.029 billion southern package will deliver a 10-kilometre dual carriageway motorway extension between Black Hill and Tomago with new congestion-busting interchanges at Black Hill, Tarro and Tomago.

The existing M1 Motorway, New England Highway and Pacific Highway carry some of the highest traffic volumes across the Hunter region, with an estimated 50,000 motorists using the corridor every day.

When completed, the M1 Pacific Motorway extension to Raymond Terrace will bypass the congestion and merge points along this corridor and reduce traffic volumes across the existing network.

John Holland CEO Joe Barr said his team was thrilled to be delivering one of the Hunter’s biggest ever infrastructure projects.

“We’re incredibly proud to be partnering with Transport for NSW to design and build what is a transformational road project for the Hunter region.

“Projects like this one put our purpose of transforming lives into practice – creating a safer, more accessible road network for the communities who depend on it.”

Construction of the main works on the M1 Pacific Motorway extension is expected to begin in 2023 following completion of the design.
