Pacific Highway to get extra $3.56 billion – if Barry agrees


The 2012-13 Budget allocates an extra $3.56 billion of funding that could be used to complete the full duplication of the Pacific Highway by the end of 2016 – if matched by the NSW Government.
On the latest estimate provided by the NSW Roads and Maritime Services, rebuilding the remaining sections of highway by the date first established by former Prime Minister John Howard will require an additional $7.1 billion over and above what the Federal and State governments have already committed.
The government is prepared to step up and match any new funding that the NSW Government allocates to this project on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to a limit of $3.56 billion. Getting this job done will require an equal partnership between both levels of government.
