Project background

The Pinch Point Programs aim 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 due to lengthy queues on the eastbound right turning bay. This reduces the capacity of the eastbound through movement from Kingsway onto President Avenue.

The project aims to improve congestion by increasing capacity along Kingsway.

As part of this work we have reviewed parking options for business customers and local residents and we will be working with Sutherland Shire Council to provide an additional 15 spaces in the Council carpark at the rear of the Caringbah shops.

Parking will remain available for business customers in the nearby Council carpark, as well as the surrounding streets, including Denman Avenue, Hays Avenue and Banksia Road.

Project features

The project aims to improve congestion by increasing capacity along Kingsway and includes:

  • duplication of the right turn lane from Kingsway into President Avenue
  • removal of up to 14 restricted parking spaces on the eastbound lane on Kingsway
  • no right turn from Hay Avenue, buses exempt
  • modification of traffic island at the intersection of President Avenue and Kingsway
  • removal of a loading zone
  • relocation of the mail zone
  • line marking and asphalting.

Project benefits

The project will:

  • minimise congestion and improve travel times
  • improve traffic flow at the intersection of President Avenue and Kingsway
  • increase efficiency and safety of the eastbound through movement on Kingsway
  • reduce the risk of crashes, particularly rear end crashes
  • reduce queuing and wait times for vehicles turning from Kingsway into President Avenue.

Next steps

We will be working up to five nights a week for 40 night shifts over a 13 week period, between Sunday 12 August and Thursday 15 November, weather permitting.

Our work hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Friday. We will not be working on public holidays.
