Project information

The NSW Government has funded Mona Vale Road and Forest Way and Forest Way and Garigal Road, Terrey Hills, intersection upgrades as part of its $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Point Program and $225 million Pinch Point Program, which aimed to reduce congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s busiest corridors.

The key benefits of intersection improvements on Mona Vale Road and Forest Way, Terrey Hills included:

  • reduced congestion and improved safety on Mona Vale Road, with the extended dual right turn lanes providing room for about 16 additional cars, and reducing the incidence of rear-end and lane change crashes
  • increased safety for bicycle riders, with a dedicated cyclist left turn lane from Mona Vale Road onto Forest Way
  • improved access to the left turn lane from Forest Way onto Mona Vale Road, allowing left turning vehicles to bypass queued traffic on Forest Way
  • reduced queue lengths for motorists travelling westbound on Mona Vale Road.

The key benefits of intersection improvements on Forest Way and Garigal Road, Terrey Hills includes:

  • reduced congestion and improved safety on Forest Way, with the additional northbound lane reducing queue lengths in peak periods, and reducing the incidence of rear-end and lane change crashes

  • widening into the existing median on Forest way between Mona Vale Road and Garigal Road to accommodate a dedicated left turn lane northbound onto Mona Vale Road
  • modifying the left slip lane from Mona Vale Road westbound onto Forest Way, to accommodate the construction of a traffic island and dedicated cycle lane.

Intersection improvement work at Forest Way and Garigal Road, Terrey Hills includes:

  • construction of a traffic island on the south-western side of the intersection to accommodate a northbound left slip lane from Forest Way into Garigal Road
