Project background

The NSW Government is funding this project as part of its $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s busiest corridors.

Roads and Maritime Services is delivering this project, which involves improving the intersection of the Pacific Highway with Mona Vale Road and Ryde Road.

Intersection improvements are being completed in two stages and will improve traffic flow on the Pacific Highway and reduce congestion, improving travel times.

Project benefits

Benefits of the project will include:

  • reducing congestion by allowing motorists travelling northbound on the Pacific Highway to move through the intersection more freely
  • improving traffic flow for motorists travelling eastbound from Pacific Highway onto Mona Vale Road
  • helping to prevent queueing southbound on Pacific Highway at the left turn onto Mona Vale Road
  • improving safety on Pacific Highway for both north and southbound motorists turning east onto Mona Vale Road.

Work carried out so far

Stage one improvements opened to traffic on 15 December 2017, and included:

  • modifying the existing northbound centre median to provide dual right turn lanes from the Pacific Highway northbound onto Mona Vale Road eastbound
  • modifying the existing southbound traffic islands on the Pacific Highway near the intersection (shortening the existing traffic island to accommodate dual right turn movement)
  • moving the traffic signals to suit the new intersection arrangement
  • road resurfacing and road marking.

Next steps

Stage two works will commence on 20 August 2018, and will include:

  • establishing the site compound
  • providing a dedicated left turn slip lane from the Pacific Highway onto Mona Vale Road
  • providing a third right turn lane from Mona Vale Road onto the Pacific Highway
  • modifying the ramp onto the Pacific Highway from Mona Vale Road to improve visibility
  • modifying the traffic island on Mona Vale Road to improve safety
  • removing some trees and shrubs to widen the road
  • upgrading the traffic lights
  • relocating utilities
  • adjusting footpaths
  • road resurfacing and road markings.
