Have your say on plans to upgrade Mona Vale Road East

28 July 2015

Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes is encourging the community to comment on plans for the upgrade of Mona Vale Road between Ingleside and Mona Vale.

The NSW Government has allocated a further $2 million this financial year to progress planning for the 3.2 km section of Mona Vale Road East - between Manor Road at Ingleside and Foley Street at Mona Vale.

The proposed upgrade reduces travel times by widening the road corridor to four lanes, with median separation and wide shoulders, and improves safety for breakdowns and cyclists.

Traffic lights, pedestrian crossings and bus priority lanes would also be installed at the Ponderosa Parade and Samuel Street intersection to enhance motorist and pedestrian safety and bus service efficiency.

The community is being invited to view the proposed concept design and comment on the Review of Environmental Factors which outlines measures to reduce environmental impacts.

“This project would provide enormous benefits to our entire community,” Rob Stokes said.

“The upgrade aims to improve safety, increase capacity and reduce travel times for the thousands of motorists who travel along Mona Vale Road every day.

“Further community feedback is now being sought to inform the final project design.

“The community is invited to learn more at information sessions on Saturday 8 August, from 10am to 12pm, and Monday 10 August, from 5pm to 7pm, at Mona Vale Memorial Hall, Park Street, Mona Vale.

“The Review of Environmental Factors is also available to view on the Roads and Maritime Services website and in hard copy at Mona Vale and Avalon Beach libraries.

“Roads and Maritime is also preparing an Environmental Assessment Report for the Mona Vale Road West Upgrade Project between McCarrs Creek Road at Terrey Hills and Powder Works Road at Ingleside. The report will be on display for community and stakeholder comment in the first half of 2016.

“Feedback on the Mona Vale East Upgrade Project is invited before Friday 28 August and can be directed to - Mona Vale Road East Upgrade, Roads and Maritime Services, PO Box 973, PARRAMATTA CBD NSW 2124 - or by email to monavaleroad@rms.nsw.gov.au.

“I encourage everyone to view the plans and concept design and provide feedback,” Rob Stokes said
