New and extended clearways on the Pacific Highway corridor

Between Pennant Hills Road, Wahroonga and Mona Vale Road, Pymble

Updates and announcements

In May 2018, Roads and Maritime Services advised the community, businesses and key stakeholders about extending the weekday clearway hours and introducing new weekend clearways on the Pacific Highway between Pennant Hills Road, Wahroonga and Mona Vale Road, Pymble. We also asked for feedback on the alternate business parking in Pymble to offset parking removed by the new and extended clearways on the Pacific Highway.

We have summarised the feedback received during the engagement period and have provided a response to the key matters raised in the June 2018 Engagement Report (PDF, 3.49Mb). After considering the feedback received, Roads and Maritime will proceed with a revised proposal that includes changes to parking around Pymble shops.

For more information about the clearways and the revised business parking please view or download the June 2018 project update (PDF, 1.71Mb).

The new and extended clearway hours will be operational from Monday 23 July 2018.

Clearway hours

There will be no changes to existing parking restrictions on the Pacific Highway outside of the new clearway hours, other than through the Pymble shops.

The new clearway hours are shown in the table:

Pacific Highway between Pennant Hills Road and Mona Vale Road Current clearways New clearways
Weekdays 6am to 10am (Southbound)

3pm to 7pm
6 am to 7pm
(both directions)
Weekends and public holidays No clearways 9am to 6pm
(both directions)

Parking changes on the Pacific Highway in Pymble

Based on feedback, Roads and Maritime has revised the proposal.

To improve safety for motorists travelling southbound on Pacific Highway, the merge from three lanes to two lanes before the Pymble bridge has been moved earlier. The line marking between Telegraph Road and Post Office Street/Grandview Street will be changed to merge southbound traffic into two lanes around 100 metres after the Telegraph Road intersection.

This location on a straighter and flatter section of the Pacific Highway is intended to improve the visibility for merging and provides a dedicated left turn lane into Pymble shops. This maintains three lanes available at the Telegraph Road intersection to ensure efficiency and throughput of the traffic lights.

This change will allow us to retain around eight parking spaces in the left turn lane between the merge and Post Office Street and introduce a loading zone near local businesses on Pacific Highway, outside of the morning clearways.

The current southbound clearways on weekdays from 6am to 10am will remain in the left turn lane, from the new merge to Pymble Bridge. Please refer to the map overleaf for more details.

A map showing the changes can be found in the June 2018 project update.

What happens next?

The new and extended clearway hours will be operational from Monday 23 July 2018.

The new clearway signs and posts will be installed between Tuesday 10 July and Sunday 22 July 2018, weather permitting. Our working hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Monday to Sunday.
