Work to start on Mona Vale Road upgrade

Minister for Roads and Freight Duncan Gay and Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes today announced work would start on the first stage of the Mona Vale Road Upgrade Project next week.

“The NSW Government provided $1.5 million to upgrade this section of Mona Vale Road after a tragic crash in October last year,” Minister Gay said.

“We wanted to ensure we made a start on improvements which would benefit the entire commmunity.”

The following works will be carried out as part of the upgrade project, from 30 June:

  • Mona Vale Road will be widened to two lanes westbound between Foley and Daydream streets and an additional lane will be installed through the roundabout to improve traffic flow.
  • Resurfacing will be carried out.
  • New signs, line marking and safety barriers will be installed.
  • The westbound bus stop will be moved closer to the roundabout, where a new bus bay will be installed, and power and light poles relocated to allow the road to be widened.

This is the first stage of a series of projects needed to improve traffic flow along Mona Vale Road,” Mr Stokes said.

“Commencing improvements along this stretch of the corridor will enable planning for the other key phases of the project to be completed.

“Partial lane closures and reduced speed limits will be in place during work with motorists advised to plan their journey, allow extra time and follow signs.

“Work on this stage of the project will continue untill late October, weather permitting.

Mr Stokes said these initial works were in addition to the NSW Government‘s $5 million allocation in the State Budget to continue planning for the upgrade of the 3.3 kilometre section of Mona Vale Road between Ingleside and Terrey Hills and the 3.1km section between Mona Vale and Ingleside.

“Our entire community knows how important it is to make a start on this enormous project”, Mr Stokes said.
Community consultation will be undertaken during the second half of this year on the next phases of the Mona Vale Road upgrade project between Mona Vale and Terrey Hills.
