• Hospital interchange providing access between the John Hunter Hospital precinct and the bypass.

• Southern interchange providing access to Lookout Road and the existing Kotara to Rankin Park section of the Newcastle Inner City Bypass. The bypass would travel under McCaffrey Drive. The half interchange provides connection in both directions on Lookout Road.

• Structures along the road to allow for drainage, animal and bushwalker access.

• Tie in and upgrades to connecting roads, including Lookout Road, McCaffrey Drive and Newcastle Road.
