Clearway hours

Roads and Maritime is extending the existing weekday clearway hours and introducing new weekend clearways on Bayswater Road and New South Head Road between Waratah Street/McLachlan Avenue, Rushcutters Bay and Bay Street, Double Bay. The new clearway hours are shown in the table below.

There will be no changes to existing parking restrictions on Bayswater Road and New South Head Road outside the new clearways hours. Existing weekday peak clearways will continue to operate on New South Head Road west of Bay Street, through the shopping area of Double Bay.

Alternate business parking proposal

Roads and Maritime investigated parking along New South Head Road and identified that the new and extended clearway hours will impact eastbound parking only.

Our preferred option is to change three unrestricted spaces on New Beach Road close to New South Head Road to ‘2P’ with the remainder of business parking being directed to the existing public carparks under the Edgecliff Centre and Eastpoint Food Fair, which can be accessed from New McLean Street.

A map showing the alternate parking options can be found in the May 2017 project update.

We discussed alternate business customer parking with Woollahra Municipal Council to identify alternate business parking locations in side streets along New South Head Road between New Beach Road and Ocean Avenue. Changes to existing unrestricted parking, timed restricted parking and loading zones were considered in: New Beach Road, Oswald Street, Mona Road, Darling Point Lane, Darling Point Road, Ocean Avenue, New McLean Street, Mahoney Lane, Reddy Street and Glenmore Road. Due to the impact to resident parking schemes and residential streets, these were not progressed.

Other options considered included construction of additional parking in Rushcutters Bay Park, which was not progressed due to impact on open space.

What happens next?

The feedback period for the proposed new and extended clearways on New South Head Road is now closed.

Roads and Maritime will consider all feedback received and a community engagement report will be prepared, summarising comments and concerns raised and will be made available here in the coming months.

We will continue to keep the community updated as the project progresses.
