Project background

The NSW Government is funding this work 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.

The intersection improvements of the Pacific Highway with Mona Vale Road and Ryde Road 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.

Community engagement

Roads and Maritime sought community feedback in October 2016. All comments were considered and impacted our decision making process.

Please view or download the community consultation report.

Progress so far and the next stage

We have finished the preliminary stage of work. The work still to be done includes:

  • modifying the existing northbound centre median to provide dual right turn lanes from the Pacific Highway northbound onto Mona Vale Road
  • modifying the existing southbound traffic islands on the Pacific Highway near the intersection
  • asphalting and road marking
  • moving the traffic signals to suit the new intersection arrangement.
