Northern Beaches Hospital road upgrade project

The NSW Government is investing $500 million to upgrade the roads around the new Northern Beaches Hospital with work proposed to be completed in 2018.

The upgrades will provide customers with a better travel experience, increased capacity on the road network and improved access through the area, including for pedestrians and cyclists.

Ferrovial York Joint Venture (FYJV) has been engaged by Roads and Maritime to carry out the project.

Starkey Street pedestrian bridge

Construction of the new pedestrian bridge at the intersection of Starkey Street and Warringah Road at Forestville will begin soon.

The new bridge will improve traffic flows along Warringah Road, minimise delays and provide safe crossing for pedestrians at this busy intersection.

The bridge will include stairs and lifts on both sides, cyclist parking facilities and pedestrian paths leading to and around the bridge access points and nearby bus stops.
