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

We have now completed stage one work.

Stage one improvements opened to traffic on Friday 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
  • asphalting and road marking.

Next steps

Roads and Maritime will carry out utility survey and investigation work at the Pacific Highway and Mona Vale Road intersection, in May 2018, in preparation for stage two work.

We will update you on stage two work when we have confirmed details.
