Lane Cove Road, North Ryde to Macquarie Park
The Sydney Clearways Strategy identifies Lane Cove Road, from Bridge Road, North Ryde to Fontenoy Road, Macquarie Park as a priority project for the introduction of a clearway to manage congestion.
In February to March 2014, Roads and Maritime Services sought community feedback on a proposal to introduce new clearways along Lane Cove Road between Bridge Road, North Ryde and Fontenoy Road, Macquarie Park. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to review the proposal and provide feedback.
Roads and Maritime received feedback from 34 people, businesses and organisations, with overall support for the proposed changes. Most respondents have acknowledged that introducing a clearway would help reduce congestion. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to consider our proposal and provide feedback.
We considered the comments and have devided to go ahead with our proposal to change the clearway hours on Lane Cove Road.
The clearway will operate from Monday 14 September 2015 in both directions:
- Weekdays from 6am to 7pm
- Weekends from 9am to 6pm
Roads and Maritime has prepared a community consultation report which provides a summary of comments and responses.
Alternative parking arrangements
In response to community and stakeholder feedback and following discussions with Council, we have built a new parking bay on Lane Cove Road between Talavera Road and Waterloo Road, southbound. This will ensure three lanes for traffic and parking for customers.
What happens next?
We will be changing the clearway hours on Lane Cove Road. Roads and Maritime will carry out work, which includes installation of signs and posts and linemarking.
This work will take three shifts to complete from Friday 11 September to Monday 14 September, weather permitting. Our working hours will be from 7pm to 5am.
The new clearway hours will be implemented on Monday 14 September 2015. Any vehicles parked on or after this date will be subject to being fined and towed.
