PACIFIC HIGHWAY, BRUNSWICK TO YELGUN NSW 2003

Conybeare Morrison provided architectural and urban design input on the Brunswick to Yelgun Upgrade of the Pacific Highway, on the NSW North Coast. The design theme for the road corridor is inspired by the uniquely beautiful north coast setting of the road and responds to the need for a robust visual experience that would be appreciated in the few minutes it takes to travel the route. The sculptural Billinudgel Pedestrian Bridge is one of the feature bridges on the route, and provides an important connection between the township and adjoining residential communities.

The project has won the following awards:

• Engineering Excellence Awards – Newcastle Division (NSW RTA)

2008 – Planning Institute of Australia

• NSW Award (HBO+EMTB) Association of Consulting Engineers Australia

• Awards for Excellence – Transport & Civil Infrastructure category, Gold Award (SMEC)
