New and extended clearways to improve traffic flow through Sydney's north shore
19 January 2018
New and extended clearways will be in operation on Boundary Street, Babbage Road and Warringah Road from Monday 22 January to improve traffic flow for motorists who travel along the key corridor between Roseville Bridge and Pacific Highway.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the clearways are part of the NSW Government’s $121 million Clearways Program which aims to reduce congestion and delays on Sydney’s roads by maximising the use of existing road space.
“Introducing new and extended clearways on this busy transport corridor through Roseville and Roseville Chase will help manage traffic flow and improve journey reliability by allowing vehicles to be towed if they park or breakdown,” the spokesperson said.
“This important corridor provides access to business areas, shopping centres as well as a number of community and recreational services.
“This corridor will provides direct access to the Northern Beaches and the clearway will also improve access and southbound traffic for motorists accessing Eastern Valley Way.
“The installation of new clearways along this 3.2 kilometre length means the NSW Government has now delivered more than 295 kilometres of new and extended clearways since the end of 2013.
“A single parked car can significantly reduce road capacity and cause major delays on road corridors during busy times so it is important to ensure all lanes are available to improve journey reliability for motorists.”
The new clearways will take effect from Monday 22 January and operate in both directions from 6am to 7pm on weekdays and from 9am to 6pm on weekends and public holidays.
Existing parking restrictions will continue to operate unchanged outside of clearway hours.
Roads and Maritime Services is also working with Ku-ring-gai Council to install four ‘1P’ parking spaces on Rowe and Allan streets and parking signs to help business customers find local council car parks at Roseville Chase shops.
Parked vehicles can be reported to the Transport Management Centre on 131 700.
