Community engagement report now online for clearways between Roseville and Roseville Chase
19 December 2017
A community engagement report on new and extended clearways along Boundary Street, Babbage Road and Warringah Road between Roseville and Roseville Chase is now available.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the clearways will be installed as part of the NSW Government’s $121 million Clearways Program, which aims to reduce delays and congestion by maximising use of existing road space.
“Introducing clearways on this key transport corridor through Sydney will reduce congestion for motorists and improve journey reliability,” the spokesperson said.
“This important corridor provides direct access to the Northern Beaches as well as the employment and shopping precinct at Chatswood.
“Roads and Maritime Services consulted with the community in October this year and asked for feedback on an alternate business customer parking proposal to introduce four one hour parking spaces on Rowe Street and Allan Street.
“This alternate parking would replace parking which will be removed from the main road during the clearway hours.
“After considering the feedback on the alternate business customer parking proposal, Roads and Maritime will continue to work with Ku-ring-gai Council to deliver the proposed parking and install additional wayfinding signage to direct business customers to the available council car parks.”
The spokesperson said the new clearways will take effect from Monday 22 January and operate in both directions on Boundary and Babbage roads from 6am to 7pm on weekdays and from 9am to 6pm on weekends and public holidays.
“Motorists are reminded any vehicles parked in the clearway on or after this date risk being fined and towed,” the spokesperson said.
Work to install new clearway signage will be carried out at night in mid-January next year, weather permitting.
Parked vehicles can be reported to the Transport Management Centre on 131 700.
