New clearways on Warringah Road between Roseville Chase and Beacon Hill
11 April 2018
New and extended clearways will be introduced on Warringah Road from the end of April to help manage traffic flow for motorists who travel along the key corridor between Roseville Chase and Beacon Hill.
A spokesperson said Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community for providing feedback which was considered when finalising the proposed clearways.
“The new and extended weekday clearways are being delivered 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,” the spokesperson said.
“The new clearways will take effect from Monday 30 April and will operate in both directions on Warringah Road between Roseville Bridge at Roseville Chase and Beacon Hill Road at Beacon Hill from 6am to 7pm on weekdays and from 9am to 6pm on weekends and public holidays.
“Introducing clearways on this busy transport corridor through Forestville, Frenchs Forest and Beacon Hill will help manage traffic flow and improve journey reliability.
“This important corridor provides access to schools, shopping centres as well as a number of community and recreational services.
“This corridor also provides direct access to Forest Way, Wakehurst Parkway and the Northern Beaches.”
The spokesperson said implementing clearways along this section of Warringah Road will ensure all lanes are available to traffic during the day.
“A single parked car can significantly reduce road capacity and cause delays on busy road corridors so it is important to ensure all lanes are available to improve journey reliability for motorists,” the spokesperson said.
“Clearways will change the ability to park, pick up and drop off family and friends and allow deliveries to be made along Warringah Road.
“During clearway hours, residents will need to reconsider parking arrangements for visitors including parking on local streets.”
Work to install new clearway signage will be carried out between Monday 16 and Sunday 29 April, weather permitting.
Parked vehicles can be reported to the Transport Management Centre on 131 700.
