Work Starts To Improve Traffic Flow On Taren Point Road

Work will start in early July on improvements to Taren Point Road from Taren Point to Caringbah to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow as part of the NSW Government’s $246 million pinch point program. 

Average travel speeds along Taren Point Road are as low as 33km/h during peak periods as motorists access local sporting fields, industrial areas and retail outlets. 

Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) will carry out three months night work for stage one of the project from Sunday 7 July between 8pm and 5am, from Sunday nights to Thursday nights. 

RMS will extend the northbound right turn lane on Taren Point Road into Koonya Circuit, and the southbound right turn lane into The Boulevarde by about 40 metres each and install a new right turn lane into Beresford Road.

The right turn will be removed from Parraweena Road westbound to Taren Point Road to provide two through lanes. Alternative right turns will be possible at Box Road to the north and Koonya Circuit to the south.

Second stage work will start in September to extend the right turn bays on Taren Point Road southbound into Holt Road and northbound into Toorak Avenue. RMS will also build a 40 metre left turn lane southbound into Toorak Avenue.

Two parking spaces will need to be removed on the north side of Toorak Avenue and the south side of Holt Road as part of the lane changes.

RMS says that it will make every effort will be made to minimise noise on nearby businesses and residents.
