The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) is planning to upgrade Coffs Harbour bypass in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, Australia.
The project involves the upgrade of a 12km four-lane dual carriageway on Pacific Highway from south of Englands Road to Korora Hill, north of Coffs Harbour.
It includes the construction of access roads, intersections and related infrastructure, the installation of signaling and safety systems, and upgrading the existing highway between the northern end of the bypass and the southern end of the Sapphire to Woolgoolga upgrade, to a four lane divided highway and a local access road.
In September 2001, Coffs Harbour Highway Planning Strategy was announced to upgrade the Pacific Highway between Sapphire and Woolgoolga, along with planning for future traffic need within the Coffs Harbour urban area.
In February 2004, the project route options were announced including a review of a proposal for a community generated western bypass corridor known as the Coastal Ridge Way.
In December 2004, a preferred route was announced as part of the Coffs Harbour Highway Planning Strategy.
In November 2006, geotechnical investigations commenced to further refine the road corridor for the project.
On September 22, 2008, RMS submitted concept design of Coffs Harbour bypass for community with a deadline for comments until October 31, 2008.
In April 2009, RMS announced to retain the Luke Bowen footbridge between existing Sapphire to Woolgoolga upgrade.
In March 2015, NSW Government pledged US$142 million for the project.
Arup has been selected to develop the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) and finalize the concept design and RCA Australia has been appointed as the surveyor.
In April 2016, Survey for EIS commenced and in May 2016, State Significant Infrastructure (SSI) report submitted.
In June 2016, NSW government committed US$7 million in the 2016 - 2017 state budget for the project.
In August 2016, preliminary concept design was on display to public.
