Extension of consultation on proposed clearways on Warringah Road and Forest Way
10 MARCH 2017
Roads and Maritime Services is extending the community consultation period for proposed new and extended clearways on Warringah Road and Forest Way to improve traffic flow and reduce delays.
A Roads and Maritime spokesperson said the proposed clearways on Warringah Road between Beacon Hill and Roseville and Forest Way between Frenchs Forest and Belrose would allow Roads and Maritime to tow vehicles that stop illegally or break down.
“Warringah Road and Forest Way were identified in the NSW Government’s $121 million Sydney Clearways Strategy for the investigation of new and extended clearways,” the spokesperson said.
“The proposed clearways would make all lanes available to traffic at times when the road is near capacity on both weekdays and weekends.”
“The proposed extended and new clearway hours of operation on both Forest Way and Warringah Road are 6am to 7pm on weekdays and from 9am to 6pm on weekends.”
“The existing parking and No Stopping restrictions on these road corridors would continue to operate outside of the proposed clearway times.”
“The community is invited to attend an information session on Thursday 16 March between 6.30pm and 8pm at the Forestville Senior Citizens Centre to speak with the project team and provide feedback on the proposal.”
Feedback is invited until Monday 20 March via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, phone on 1300 706 232 or in writing to Sydney Clearways Strategy, Roads and Maritime, PO Box 973, Parramatta, NSW, 2124.
Roads and Maritime will consider all feedback and continue to keep the community updated as the proposals progress.
