New and extended clearways on Warringah Road

Between Roseville Bridge, Roseville Chase and Beacon Hill Road, Beacon Hill.

Updates and announcements

In November and December 2017, Roads and Maritime Services displayed the Review of Environmental Factors (REF).

We have considered the comments received, along with the Sydney Clearways Strategy objectives and the outcomes of the traffic investigations, and have decided to progress with the proposal.

We have collated the feedback and provided responses in a REF Submissions Report (PDF, 1.31Mb).

The new weekend and extended weekday clearways will be operational from 30 April. More detail is available in the April 2018 Project Update (PDF, 273Kb).

Project 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 370 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 provide more reliable travel times for road users across the network.

Consultation outcome

In February and March 2017, Roads and Maritime asked for feedback from the community on a proposal to extend the existing and introduce new clearways on Warringah Road from Roseville Bridge, Roseville Chase to Beacon Hill Road, Beacon Hill.

We received feedback from community members and stakeholders who raised matters in relation to the need for new and extended clearways, changes to parking and accessing properties. The feedback was collated in a Community Consultation Report and responses provided to the key matters raised.

After considering all the feedback, along with the objectives of the Sydney Clearways Strategy, Roads and Maritime progressed the new and extended clearways proposal by displaying the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) Volume 1 and Volume 2 in November and December 2017.

After considering the comments received on the REF, along with the Sydney Clearways Strategy objectives and the outcomes of the traffic investigations, we have decided to progress with the proposal. The feedback was collated in a REF Submissions Report and responses provided to all the matters raised.

What happens next?

The new and extended clearway signs and posts will be installed between 16 April and 29 April.

The clearway hours in both directions on Warringah Road will be operational from Monday 30 April:

  • weekdays from 6am to 7pm
  • weekends and public holidays from 9am to 6pm.

There will be no changes to existing parking restrictions outside the new clearway hours. Changes to clearway restrictions will also be implemented on Warringah Road where the Northern Beaches Hospital road upgrade project is currently taking place.
