New England Highway



and continues through Cunningham Highway in Queensland to Brisbane See also: New England Interstate Highways, a system of numbered highways in New England, USA, from 1922 to 1927. The New England Highway is a highway in Australia. It traverses the New England (Australia) region of New South Wales and also extends into southern Queensland. The New England Highway is part of the National Highway (Australia) network, which means that the federal government, not the New South Wales state government, pays for their maintenance and development.

Introduction

The 1047 km Sydney–Brisbane National Highway route follows the Sydney–Newcastle Freeway (National Highway 1) and the New England and Cunningham highways (both part of National Highway 15). This interstate corridor serves the Central Coast, Newcastle and Hunter regions. Further north, the highway serves the New England Region, including the cities of Tamworth and Armidale, and the Southern Downs Region near the New South Wales–Queensland border.

Track

When some of the highways in Australia were designated as national highways in the 1970s, the New England Highway was considered to be the most suitable route to be the main highway linking New South Wales and Queensland. However, due to increasing population and development in the North Coast, New South Wales, it is the coastal Pacific Highway (Australia) which is being upgraded to four-lane motorway standards while the inland New England Highway languishes. Thus, the New England Highway is the fastest route from Sydney to Brisbane as it avoids busy coastal towns and hence interstate freight traffic is heavy. It is also better suited for intercapital travel particularly during peak holiday seasons when stretches of Pacific Highway are congested. As a result New England Highway is being straightened and bypasses are planned or being built.

The New England Highway commences at its junction with the Pacific Highway (Australia) at Hexham, New South Wales, a few kilometers inland from Newcastle, New South Wales. It connects the following towns:
Maitland, New South Wales
