Proposed alternative business parking in Manly Vale for new and extended clearways

Part of the Barrenjoey, Pittwater and Manly roads corridor between Pittwater Road, Brookvale and Medusa Street, The Spit

Updates and announcements

In September, Roads and Maritime Services asked the community for feedback on proposed parking changes in Manly Vale for new and extended clearways on Condamine Street, Burnt Bridge Creek Deviation and Manly Road between Pittwater Road, Brookvale and Medusa Street, The Spit.

We also asked for feedback on providing up to 21 timed parking spaces through Manly Vale on King Street, Innes Street, Sunshine Street and Koorala Street to improve parking availability for business customers at the Manly Vale business area.

We received feedback from over 90 community members, including motorists, stakeholders, businesses, residents, commuters and others, who provided their feedback on the proposed parking changes and new and extended clearways.

We have listened to the local community and will undertake further investigations into the feedback, particularly the removal of northbound parking on the state road through Manly Vale. Some other areas for investigation include access to properties, loading and unloading for businesses, and parking in the local area.

We plan to provide an update to registered community members on the progress of the investigations in February next year. If you would like to be on the email distribution list for this project, please contact the clearways project team at clearways@rms.nsw.gov.au or 1300 706 232.

Background

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

This follows the corridors inclusion in the Sydney Clearways Strategy in December 2013, which is one of the key initiatives to reduce congestion on Sydney’s major roads.

This route is the main corridor connecting the Northern Beaches to the Sydney CBD. The corridor is 20km long and carries more than 60,000 vehicles each day, with road users experiencing delays and congestion in each direction.

We are speaking to the community about how new and extended clearways on this key corridor could help ease congestion, improve journey reliability, and improve safety for road users.

Roads and Maritime engage with the community before any changes are made on a state road to understand the community’s needs and feedback. The feedback is then considered as part of the decision making process.

In addition to engagement through Manly Vale, In October Roads and Maritime commenced engagement with the community through Collaroy about proposed clearways and parking changes on Pittwater Road. We have started the process of evaluating the submissions and investigating the issues raised by the community.

Clearway hours

The proposed new and extended clearway hours on Condamine Street between Pittwater Road, Brookvale and Burnt Bridge Creek Deviation, Balgowlah are shown in this table:

Condamine Street Current restrictions New clearways
Weekdays 6am-10am* (citybound)
3pm–7pm (outbound)
6am – 7pm (both directions)
Weekends and public holidays No clearways* 9am – 6pm (both directions)

*Bus Lane at all times citybound between Pittwater Road and Campbell Avenue

The proposed new and extended clearway hours on Burnt Bridge Creek Deviation and Manly Road between Condamine Street, Balgowlah and Medusa Street, The Spit are shown in this table:

Burnt Bridge Creek Deviation and Manly Road Current restrictions New clearways
Weekdays 6am-10am and 3pm-7pm** (citybound)
3pm–7pm^ (outbound)
At all times (both directions)
Weekends and public holidays No clearways** At all times (both directions)

** Bus Lane 3pm–7pm citybound ends at Avona Crescent

^ Bus Lane at all times outbound between Sydney Road and Condamine Street

There would be no changes to existing parking restrictions in this section of the corridor outside the new clearway hours.

Alternative business parking

Roads and Maritime 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 proposed new and extended clearway hours.

In September 2018, we asked for feedback on a proposal to provide up to 21 timed parking spaces in Manly Vale through King Street, Innes Street, Sunshine Street and Koorala Street as shown on the map below.

Community engagement

The clearways project team during the engagement period met with businesses along the corridor; distributed information about the proposal to around 3,900 properties; held an information session at Stocklands Balgowlah where we spoke to members of the community and businesses about the proposal and received feedback. We also used social media to reach the wider community, including road users who commute along the corridor.

We are continuing our evaluation and investigation into the key issues raised. We will prepare and publish an engagement report which provides a response to the key issues raised along with the next steps.

What happens next?

We will continue to engage with the community during this investigation process, which is likely to take a number of months to ensure we undertake a comprehensive assessment.

Key stakeholders, including Northern Beaches Council and Transport for NSW will be engaged as part of these investigations. We will continue to update the community as the proposal progresses.

We plan to provide an update to registered community members on the progress of the investigations in February next year.
