Work scheduled for Raymond Terrace Interchange


Motorists are being advised to add 10 minutes to their travel time as work takes place on the Raymond Terrace Interchange this week.

Transport for NSW (TfNSW) is carrying out an essential maintenance project on the northbound Richardson Road off-ramp and southbound Pacific Highway on-ramp.

And, to minimise the impact, it’s scheduled to be carried out from 7pm to 4.30am, Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 March, weather permitting.

The Richardson Road off-ramp and the Pacific Highway on-ramp will be closed for road resurfacing.

However, only one is affected each night.

On Wednesday 20 March, the northbound off-ramp to Richardson Road from the Pacific Highway will be closed.

“Motorists are encouraged to exit further north at Rees James Road,” the TfNSW spokesperson said.

“They can then travel south to the end of Rees James Road and turn right onto Adelaide Street, before reaching the Adelaide Street and Richardson Road roundabout.”

On Thursday 21 March, the southbound on-ramp to the Pacific Highway from Richardson Road will be closed, too.

“Motorists should enter the highway from the northbound on-ramp from Richardson Road and turn around at the Rangers Road U-turn bay to travel southbound on the highway,” the spokesperson said.

“Traffic control will be in place for the safety of workers and motorists.

“Everyone is urged to drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.

“We thank all motorists for their patience during this time.”
