Background

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

Installing new and extended clearways on weekdays and weekends can help reduce congestion in many areas of Sydney by allowing motorists to use all traffic lanes.

Since 2013, we have installed over 220 kilometres of new and extended clearways across some of Sydney’s busiest road corridors. We are continuing to investigate where new and extended clearways would help ease congestion and establish more reliable travel times for motorists across the network.

Clearway hours

The new and extended clearways will operate in both directions on Pennant Hills Road from:

  • 6am to 7pm on weekdays
  • 8am to 8pm on weekends and public holidays.

Installation

The new clearway signs and posts will be installed between Friday 10 November and Sunday 10 December, weather permitting.

Our working hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Monday to Sunday. There will be minimal noise associated with this work.

The new and extended clearways will be operational on Pennant Hills Road on:

  • Monday 4 December between M2 Motorway, Carlingford and Pacific Highway, Wahroonga
  • Monday 11 December between James Ruse Drive, Oatlands and M2 Motorway, Carlingford.

You must not stop or park on a length of road signed as a clearway during its hours of operation. If your vehicle is parked in a clearway during its hours of operation, it will risk being towed and fines applied. Public buses and taxis are permitted to stop in a clearway to set down or pick up passengers.

To report a vehicle parked in a clearway or if your vehicle has been towed from a clearway, please call Transport Management Centre on 131 700.
