Background

Following investigation work from September 2017 to March 2018, Roads and Maritime Services will be making improvements to the intersection of Taren Point Road, The Boulevarde and Captain Cook Drive in Caringbah.

Project features

A high number of vehicles currently turn right from Taren Point Road into The Boulevarde, which results in queuing during the AM and PM peak periods. This also causes delays for motorists travelling through the intersection and congestion. Roads and Maritime will be widening Taren Point Road to provide an additional right turning lane to allow more vehicles to travel through the intersection during each traffic light phase.

The work includes:

  • widening Taren Point Road to include an additional right turn lane southbound into The Boulevarde
  • realigning the north-west corner of the intersection to allow for road widening, including relocating and widening the existing pedestrian crossing and kerb ramps on The Boulevarde
  • relocating existing utilities on the south-west corner of the intersection, including replacing the existing foot path and fencing
  • altering the two signalised pedestrian crossings on Taren Point Road, at the northern and southern ends of the intersection, to correspond with the road widening
  • tree removal, trimming and landscaping
  • road resurfacing and adjusting road marking.
