New and extended clearways on Taren Point Road

Between Captain Cook Bridge, Taren Point and Kingsway, Caringbah.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services is changing the clearway hours on Taren Point Road between Captain Cook Bridge, Taren Point and Kingsway, Caringbah to reduce congestion, improve journey times, and improve safety.

The new and extended clearways will operate in both directions from:

  • 6am to 7pm on weekdays
  • 9am to 6pm on weekends and public holidays.

Roads and Maritime invited feedback on the proposed alternate business parking options in November 2017. We are collating all the feedback received on the proposed alternative parking arrangements and will continue to update you as the project progresses.

Background

The NSW Government announced the Sydney Clearways Strategy as one of its key initiatives to reduce congestion on Sydney’s major roads. $121 million was committed to implementing the strategy and installing new clearways on Sydney’s road network.

Installing new and extended clearways on weekdays and weekends can help reduce congestion in many areas of Sydney by allowing motorists to use all traffic lanes.

Since 2013, we have installed over 330 kilometres of new and extended clearways across some of Sydney’s busiest road corridors. We are continuing to investigate where new and extended clearways would help ease congestion and provide more reliable travel times for road users across the network.

For further information please see Sydney Clearways Strategy.

Clearway hours

Roads and Maritime is extending the existing weekday clearway hours and introducing new weekend clearways on Taren Point Road between Captain Cook Bridge, Taren Point and Kingsway, Caringbah.

The new and extended clearways will operate in both directions from:

  • 6am to 7pm on weekdays
  • 9am to 6pm on weekends and public holidays.

There will be no changes to existing parking restrictions outside the new clearway hours.

Alternative business parking proposal

Our investigations showed that most businesses on Taren Point Road have onsite parking for customers. However, we are currently working with Sutherland Shire Council to provide additional nearby timed on-street parking for customers which could include installing new timed parking during clearway hours on:

  • Box Road, west of Taren Point Road – six ‘2P’ parking spaces
  • Kumulla Road, west of Taren Point Road – nine ‘2P’ parking spaces.

We are also discussing improvements to the kerbside parking on Box Road, which may provide additional parking spaces to minimise the impact on local businesses.

A map showing the alternative parking arrangements can be found in the November 2017 project update.

What happens next?

Consultation on the alternate business parking proposal has now closed.

We will consider your feedback on the proposed alternate parking arrangements and continue to update you as the project progresses.
