Forest Way - Belrose to Frenchs Forest

The Sydney Clearways Strategy identified Forest Way from Wyatt Avenue/Morgan Road, Belrose to Warringah Road, Frenchs Forest as a route for the investigation of new clearways to better manage congestion on Sydney's road network.

Updates and announcements

The consultation period for proposed clearways on Forest Way from Belrose to Frenchs Forest is now closed.

Roads and Maritime will consider all feedback received from the February and March 2017 consultation period. The comments raised by the community during this period will be considered and assessed along with other available data to further refine the clearways proposal. This assessment will inform the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) to be developed for the proposed clearways on Warringah Road and Forest Way.

We will publicly display the REF for each clearways proposal and will invite further feedback from the community at that time. The community will be notified of the display locations and how to make a submission.

We will keep you updated as the proposal progresses.

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.

Forest Way is a key corridor on Sydney’s road network and is used by over 40,000 motorists in both directions every day.

When cars are parked in the kerbside lanes, motorists are forced to merge into adjacent lanes. When the road is near capacity this causes delays and congestion.

Community consultation

Roads and Maritime will consider all feedback received from the February and March 2017 consultation period. The comments raised by the community during this period will be considered and assessed along with other available data to further refine the clearways proposal. This assessment will inform the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) to be developed for the proposed clearways on Warringah Road and Forest Way.

What are the proposed hours of operation?

Roads and Maritime is proposing to install new weekday and weekend clearways in both directions on Forest Way from Wyatt Avenue/Morgan Road, Belrose to Warringah Road, Frenchs Forest:

  • Weekdays from 6:00am to 7:00pm
  • Weekends from 9:00am to 6:00pm.

Alternative parking arrangements

The proposal would have a minor impact on business parking along the route, however parking in front of residential properties would be impacted.

A study of current parking use and alternative parking options found there is sufficient alternative business parking available in nearby side streets and existing carparks. It also found that all residential properties potentially impacted by the proposal have driveways or off-street parking.

What happens next?

Roads and Maritime will publicly display the REF for each clearways proposal and will invite further feedback from the community at that time. The community will be notified of the display locations and how to make a submission.

We will keep you updated as the proposal progresses.
