Pedestrian Bridge across New Illawarra Road, Menai

The NSW Government is funding this proposal as part of its $300 million Gateway to the South Pinch Point Program which aims to ease congestion and improve journey reliability on Sydney’s key southern corridors.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services notified the community in December 2017 of plans to install a pedestrian bridge across New Illawarra Road near Barry Road, Menai.

We have considered all feedback received and have decided not to proceed with the project. We thank everyone who contacted Roads and Maritime for taking the time to provide their feedback.

Project features

The pedestrian bridge will improve the flow of traffic along New Illawarra Road by replacing the existing signalised pedestrian crossing. It will also increase safety and improve connectivity between the eastern and western sides of New Illawarra Road for pedestrians and cyclists.

The work will include:

  • construction of a steel pedestrian bridge, with access ramps on the each side of New Illawarra Road
  • construction of a shared path to connect to existing paths on the eastern side of New Illawarra Road
  • removal of existing pedestrian crossing, including traffic signals and pedestrian fencing
  • tree removal, trimming and landscaping
  • adjustments to the existing noise wall
  • adjustments to line marking
