Intersection improvements on Kingsway and Elouera Road, Cronulla

FEB 2020Work complete

In February 2020, work finished on improvements to the intersection of Kingsway and Elouera Road, Cronulla. The improvements allow more vehicles to clear the intersection with each traffic light phase.

These changes were designed to reduce congestion and delays on Elouera Road.

The work also delivered a dedicated cycle lane through the intersection, linking to existing cycle routes on Elouera Road and Gerrale Street.

 

Project information

Elouera Road was widened on the approach to its intersection with Kingsway, which added a new right‑turn‑only lane. Around seven extra cars can now fit in the new lane, which increases capacity at this intersection.

The new configuration helps reduce congestion for both turning traffic and though traffic onto Gerrale Street.

The widening also allowed us to establish a dedicated cycle-lane through the intersection, which will link Sutherland Shire Council’s existing cycle routes on Elouera Road and Gerrale Street.

In December 2018 we relocated two accessible parking spaces on Elouera Road, constructed a new, safer pram ramp across Elouera Road and surfaced an area of Kingsway, eastbound.

  • Duplicating the right turn lane from Elouera Road into Kingsway
  • Installing an on-road cycle lane to connect Elouera Road with the existing Gerrale Street cycle lane to facilitate active transport in the area
  • Adjusting the kerb and pram ramps opposite the Peryman Square entrance to improve pedestrian safety
  • Moving two accessible parking spaces further north towards Mitchell Road, where they link with existing pedestrian footpaths headed down towards the beach
  • Removing up to 15 parking spaces on the southbound lane on Elouera Road to allow for road widening work
  • Relocation of the traffic lights at the entrance of Peryman Square
  • Establishing the new Peryman Square entrance
  • Road resurfacing, linemarking and asphalting.
  • Reduce congestion and improve travel times for vehicles turning right from Elouera Road into the Kingsway
  • Reduce the impact of right-turn queuing on through‑lane traffic
  • Provide safe, active transport links for cyclists and walkers.
