About the project

We are continuing planning works for duplication of the Midway Point and Sorell causeways (increasing them to four lanes, two in each direction.)

A shared path will be included on both new causeways, and people will still be able to fish on the southern side of McGees bridge.

Duplicating the causeways will increase the benefits of the other South East Traffic Solution projects.

Current situation

A feasibility planning study has been completed for the duplication of both causeways and the project can proceed once more detailed environmental studies and design work is progressed.

The Pittwater and Orielton Lagoon is a sensitive ecosystem and the design and construction will consider the appropriate management to minimise impacts on the environmental values.

Construction work is expected to commence in 2023.
