Pacific Highway - Chatswood to Artarmon Clearway

Project background

In December 2013, the NSW Government announced the Sydney Clearways Strategy as one of its key initiatives to reduce congestion on Sydney’s roads. The NSW Government has committed $121 million to implementing the strategy and installing new clearways on Sydney’s road network.

Pacific Highway between Chatswood and Artarmon is a key corridor that provides access between Chatswood and the Sydney CBD. It also forms part of the A1 corridor, which is a key strategic freight route, and a route of national significance.

Clearways are directly aimed at reducing congestion where a road is carrying traffic close to its capacity. The proposed clearways aim to ensure that all lanes are available during the times when traffic is heavy, which is expected to reduce congestion without the need for road widening.

What are the proposed hours of operation?

Roads and Maritime is proposing to install new weekday and weekend clearways in both directions on Pacific Highway, between Fullers Road/Help Street, Chatswood and Longueville Road/Gore Hill Freeway, Artarmon:

  • Weekdays from 6am to 7pm
  • Weekends and public holidays from 9am to 6pm.

Alternative parking arrangements

The proposed clearways would impact 14 business parking spaces on Pacific Highway,  northbound between Mowbray Road and Fehon Road, Chatswood.

Roads and Maritime identified potential alternative parking arrangements to cater for the demand for business parking removed from Pacific Highway. These arrangements could include:

  • converting five unrestricted parking spaces on the southern side of Fehon Road to 1P during the proposed clearway hours of operation
  • converting six unrestricted parking spaces on the northern side of Moriarty Road to 2P (Residents Excepted) during the proposed clearway hours of operation
  • converting one 2P parking space on the northern side of Moriarty Road to ‘No parking’ (funeral vehicles excepted)
  • converting four 2P parking spaces on the southern side of Moriarty Road to 1P during the proposed clearway hours of operation.

What happens next?

The consultation period for proposed new and extended clearways on Pacific Highway from Chatswood to Artarmon is now closed.

We will consider all feedback received before deciding whether to proceed with the proposal. A community consultation report will be prepared summarising comments and issues raised and will be made available on our website.

We will keep you updated as the proposal progresses.
