Project background

The NSW Government is funding this work as part of its $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s busiest corridors.

Road users currently experience delays when travelling through the intersection during peak periods. This is due to lengthy queues on the westbound right turning bay into Gannons Road that reduces the capacity of the westbound through movement on Kingsway. The improvements will increase the flow of traffic travelling through the intersection and reduce the amount of wait time at the traffic lights. In

April 2018, Roads and Maritime notified local businesses, residents and stakeholders of upcoming improvement work at the intersection of Kingsway and Gannons Road in Caringbah.

Project features

The proposed improvements include:

  • provision for an additional right turn lane on Kingsway into Gannons Road
  • removal of six restricted car parking spaces on Gannons Road
  • removal of around 13 car parking spaces on Kingsway
  • removal of the Australia Post mail zone and post box
  • adjusting the traffic signal timings
  • line marking and asphalting.

Project benefits

  • reduce congestion and improve travel times
  • reduce queuing and waiting times for vehicles turning right from Kingsway into Gannon’s Road
  • reduce the likelihood of vehicles queuing and blocking the through lanes on Kingsway
  • improve traffic flow and travel time reliability for motorists.

Next steps

We will begin work on this project to deliver the improvements for a total of 25 night shifts, between Monday, 14 May and Thursday, 20 August, weather permitting.

Our work hours will be from 8pm to 5am, between Sundays and Fridays. We will not be working public holidays.
