Project background

In December 2013, the NSW Government announced the Sydney Clearways Strategy as one of its key initiatives to reduce congestion on Sydney’s roads. The NSW Government has committed $121 million to implementing the strategy and installing new clearways on Sydney’s road network.

Eastern Valley Way/Clive Street between Roseville Chase and Northbridge is a key corridor that provides access for the Northbridge, Castlecrag, Castle Cove and Willoughby communities to the Northern Beaches suburbs. It is a tertiary freight corridor, and is identified in ‘Sydney’s Bus Future’ as a suburban bus route.

Clearways are directly aimed at reducing congestion where a road is carrying traffic close to its capacity. The proposed clearways aim to ensure that all lanes are available during the times when traffic is heavy, which is expected to reduce congestion without the need for road widening.

Community consultation

Roads and Maritime consulted with the community, businesses and key stakeholders on this proposal in June and July 2017. Consultation has now closed and we will consider all feedback received before deciding whether to proceed with the proposal.

What are the proposed hours of operation?

Roads and Maritime is proposing to install new weekday and weekend clearways in both directions on Eastern Valley Way/Clive Street from Babbage Road, Roseville Chase to Sailors Bay Road, Northbridge, to operate:

  • Weekdays from 6am to 7pm
  • Weekends and public holidays from 9am to 6pm.

What happens next?

The consultation period for proposed new and extended clearways on Eastern Valley Way/Clive Street is now closed.
