Project name: Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link


In March 2017, the NSW Government released a project concept and started detailed design work on the Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link project.

The NSW Government has now released the proposed reference design for this landmark project.

We want to hear what you think about where we are up to. Roads and Maritime is now commencing community engagement on the reference design presented in this document.

Project name: Proposed alternate business parking in Manly Vale for new and extended clearways


In August 2018, the NSW Government announced the start of community engagement for new and extended clearways on the Barrenjoey, Pittwater, and Manly roads corridor between Mona Vale and The Spit.

We are addressing congestion by extending the existing weekday clearways and introducing new weekend clearways on the corridor.

We are commencing engagement on the section between the Pittwater Road/Condamine Street intersection and Medusa Street.

Roads and Maritime has investigated parking on this section of the corridor. We found that business parking through Manly Vale between King Street and Burnt Bridge Creek Deviation would be impacted by the new and extended clearways.

We are working with Northern Beaches Council to deliver alternate business parking to ensure parking is available close to this business area. Our proposal includes providing up to 21 timed parking spaces through Manly Vale on King Street, Innes Street, Sunshine Street and Koorala Street.

The new commuter car park on Kenneth Road will provide approximately 150 additional parking spaces for commuters from the area. This is expected to reduce the demand for long term commuter parking on nearby side streets and improve parking availability for business customers at the Manly Vale business area.

More information is available on the project web page.

How can you give feedback?

To provide feedback on the alternate business parking:

Email: clearways@rms.nsw.gov.au
Phone: 1300 706 232

We are asking for your feedback by 24 September 2018.

Project name: Proposed alternative business parking for clearways on Cabramatta Road


Roads and Maritime Services is working to reduce congestion and improve travel times on this busy road corridor between Bonnyrigg and Cabramatta. We will be introducing new and extended clearways on Cabramatta Road between Elizabeth Drive and Hume Highway.

The proposed new and extended clearways will operate in both directions on Cabramatta Road from 6am to 7pm on weekdays and from 9am to 6pm on weekend and public holidays.

The proposed new and extended clearways will replace existing ‘No Parking’ and ‘No Stopping’ parking restrictions. Bus zones will continue to operate without change. The indented parking bay on Cabramatta Road West in front of businesses between Lord Street and Boyd Street will remain unchanged.

The 1/4P and 2P parking in this bay will continue to operate during clearways hours. The timed parking spaces on the section of Cabramatta Road West diverging towards John Street in Cabramatta Town Centre will remain unchanged.

Roads and Maritime investigated business customer parking along this corridor and found there is sufficient parking available in side streets, in the indented parking bay on Cabramatta Road West or between Cabramatta Road West and John Street to meet business customer parking demand.

We invite your local knowledge and feedback on our proposal to move some business parking to side streets along Cabramatta Road West during the proposed clearway hours.

How can you give feedback?

We invite feedback on alternative business parking by Monday 24 September 2018.

Feedback can be provided to clearways@rms.nsw.gov.au or call 1300 706 232.

We will consider all feedback and update the community as the project progress

Project Name: Proposed alternative business parking at Castle Hill Road for new clearways


Roads and Maritime Services is proposing new weekend and extended weekday clearways on Castle Hill Road between Old Northern Road, Castle Hill and Pennant Hills Road, West Pennant Hills.

Whilst there are businesses along this corridor, our investigations found that no parking was observed on Castle Hill Road in front of the businesses and that there is sufficient parking available for customers within the premises and in nearby side streets.

The Clearways Project Team will be available to discuss the new and extended clearway hours and business parking arrangements on Thursday 27 September at Coles West Pennant Hills from 4pm to 7pm. The supermarket is located at Pennant Hills Road, West Pennant Hills (see map for location).

We invite your feedback on the clearways and business parking arrangements by Monday 8 October 2018. Please send your comments to clearways@rms.nsw.gov.au or call 1300 706 232.

Project Name: Proposed alternative business parking at Baulkham Hills for new clearways


Roads and Maritime Services is working to preserve capacity and improve safety on this important road corridor by installing new weekend and extended weekday clearways on Old Northern Road between Showground Road, Castle Hill and Windsor Road, Baulkham Hills.

The southbound bus lane on Old Northern Road from Raemot Lane to Windsor Road will be changed from 6am-10am to operate 24 hours. To complete this 24 hour bus lane, nine timed one hour parking spaces that were previously available after 10am on weekdays will be removed from Old Northern Road.

We invite your feedback on the business parking arrangements by Friday 28 September 2018. Please send your comments to clearways@rms.nsw.gov.au or call 1300 706 232.
