New title[edit]

Hello fellow wikivoyagers. I have renamed it because this article is out of date. The Pacific Highway is now split with some sections being called Pacific Highway and some being called Pacific Motorway. The gazette is 8 years out of date. I'm presuming that people reading this are here to go from Sydney to Brissie by car and not for going on the old Pacific Highway; which most of it has been renamed. Let me know what you think.

Looks reasonable to me, but please don't archive this, given that there's no premium on space. Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:19, 16 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Nope, I won't archive it till June SHB2000 (talk) 10:47, 16 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There's no reason to archive this page until it's overly long. Ikan Kekek (talk) 11:21, 16 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Alternate banner for this article[edit]

Current one (B1)
Alternate current Pacific Motorway (B2)
Pacific Highway before Port Macquarie (B3)

I propose that we change the banner. The current one is out of date and does not represent the modern Pacific Highway/Motorway. The new one is fairly new and reflects the recent changes. SHB2000 (talk) 10:57, 20 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • New banner -- that one looks better. Ground Zero (talk) 12:13, 20 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I like both banners to a point, but since only the new one shows current conditions, change to the new one. Ikan Kekek (talk) 18:45, 20 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That old one was bypassed like 20 years ago. SHB2000 (talk) 22:27, 20 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Ikan Kekek, Ground Zero:, here's a better version of the banner (See B3). SHB2000 (talk) 03:53, 21 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yeah, that one is the best, IMO. It shows up-to-date conditions, right? Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:56, 21 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree: banner 3. Ground Zero (talk) 05:00, 21 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Ikan Kekek: yep, it sure does. SHB2000 (talk) 05:22, 21 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Banner 3 is my first preference too. Gizza (roam) 01:46, 23 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Though Banner three is slightly different since 2019 after the bushfires went close to that stretch of highway. SHB2000 (talk) 06:34, 23 March 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Reviving this[edit]

Banner 4 (just before St Helena Tunnel)
Banner 5 (taken from this vandalised bridge)

I've cropped two more banners. 4 is one of my favourite tunnels, and I cropped 5 because of its symmetry (and also depicts both sides of the road, not just northbound). --SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta) 00:41, 15 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

For the record, I think banner 4 was taken in this exact location. --SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta) 00:45, 15 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I like B2 or B4, prefer a shot with bridge or tunnel, find photos with just a road rather boring. Pashley (talk) 00:53, 15 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
