Mona Vale Road upgrade
Mona Vale Road, serving the Northern Beaches and northern suburbs of Sydney, is a corridor of demand within the transport network.
The NSW Government is proposing to upgrade Mona Vale Road from two lanes to four lanes between Terrey Hills and Mona Vale. The upgrades are being planned in stages and are aimed at improving safety and traffic efficiency. The projects include:
Intersection improvement of Mona Vale Road with Ponderosa Parade and Samuel Street, Mona Vale. This work was completed in early 2015.
Upgrade of 3.2 kilometres of Mona Vale Road from two lanes to four lanes between Manor Road, Ingleside and Foley Street, Mona Vale. Roads and Maritime prepared a Review of Environmental Factors (REF) to examine the potential impacts of the proposed upgrade to Mona Vale Road East and outline measures to reduce and manage the impacts. The REF was displayed for community and stakeholder comment from Wednesday 29 July to Friday 28 August 2015. Roads and Maritime has now determined the REF for Mona Vale Road East and is proceeding with the detailed design phase of the project.
Upgrade of 3.2 kilometres of Mona Vale Road from two lanes to four lanes between McCarrs Creek Road, Terrey Hills and Powder Works Road, Ingleside. Roads and Maritime is currently preparing the Review of Environmental Factors to examine the potential impacts of the proposed upgrade to Mona Vale Road West and outline measures to reduce and manage the impacts. The Review of Environmental Factors will be placed on display for community and stakeholder comment in the first half of 2016.
Other work on Mona Vale Road
Work to improve safety on the approach to the Ponderosa Parade/Samuel Street roundabout was completed in January 2014 and included:
- New speed limit signs
- Improved line markings
- Improved signs on the steep descent
- Improved warning signs.
In 2009, Roads and Maritime prepared a corridor strategy for the area from Mona Vale to Macquarie Park. The strategy identified short and long term priorities for Mona Vale Road, including the East and West upgrades.
