Warringah Road - the Roseville Bridge to Beacon Hill

The Sydney Clearways Strategy identified Warringah Road between the Roseville Bridge to Beacon Hill Road, Beacon Hill, as a route for the investigation of new and extended clearways to better manage congestion on Sydney's road network.

Updates and announcements

The consultation period for proposed clearways on Warringah Road from the Roseville Bridge to Beacon Hill is now closed.

Roads and Maritime will consider all feedback received from the February and March 2017 consultation period. The comments raised by the community during this period will be considered and assessed along with other available data to further refine the clearways proposal. This assessment will inform the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) to be developed for the proposed clearways on Warringah Road and Forest Way.

We will publicly display the REF for each clearways proposal and will invite further feedback from the community at that time. The community will be notified of the display locations and how to make a submission.

We will keep you updated as the proposal progresses.

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.

Warringah Road is a key corridor on Sydney’s road network and is used by nearly 75,000 motorists every day.

When cars are parked in the kerbside lanes, motorists are forced to merge into adjacent lanes. When the road is near capacity this causes delays and congestion.

Community consultation

Roads and Maritime will consider all feedback received from the February and March 2017 consultation period. The comments raised by the community during this period will be considered and assessed along with other available data to further refine the clearways proposal. This assessment will inform the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) to be developed for the proposed clearways on Warringah Road and Forest Way.

What are the proposed hours of operation?

Roads and Maritime is proposing to install new and extended clearways in both directions on Warringah Road between the Roseville Bridge and Beacon Hill Road, Beacon Hill:

  • Weekdays from 6:00am to 7:00pm
  • Weekends from 9:00am to 6:00pm.

Other ‘No Parking’ and ‘No Stopping’ restrictions that operate outside clearway times, will remain in place.

Alternative parking arrangements

The proposal would have minimal impact on business parking along the route however parking in front of residential properties would be impacted.

A study of current parking use and alternative parking options found there is sufficient alternative business parking available in nearby side streets and in existing carparks. It also found that all residential properties potentially impacted by the proposal have driveways or off-street parking.

What happens next?

Roads and Maritime will publicly display the REF for each clearways proposal and will invite further feedback from the community at that time. The community will be notified of the display locations and how to make a submission.

We will keep you updated as the proposal progresses.
