Traffic and commuters

Roads and Maritime has made temporary traffic changes so we can progress the upgrade of Warringah Road at Frenchs Forest. Warringah Road is one of Sydney’s busiest arterial roads.

Traffic information

There will be minor traffic changes as construction of the 1.3 kilometre long underpass progresses.

Motorists at the Forest Way and Wakehurst Parkway intersections will notice a reduction in temporary traffic changes compared to those experienced throughout 2019.

Traffic delays and impacts to journey times will continue and we sincerely appreciate the support of residents and road users during this period.

To view more detailed information on current work locations and traffic changes, view the interactive map from the project home page.

We urge motorists to use alternative routes; avoid the area if possible during peak periods, allow extra travel time, and plan their journey ahead.

Alternative routes like Mona Vale Road or Pittwater Road may be better options for some journeys. You can also consider a real-time road app to help you find your best route based on live traffic data.

New bus priority measures and facilities will provide:

  • increased bus services
  • improved public transport options
  • improved safety for pedestrians and cyclists

New facilities such as signalised pedestrian crossings at all intersections, shared paths and shared pedestrian bridges will also improve safety, public transport options and provide essential access through the area.

During construction, some bus stops need to be temporarily relocated or closed to allow essential work to occur. Pedestrian access is maintained at all times, although minor temporary detours may be in place. We will communicate these changes to users via notifications and signs posted at the bus stops.

The project team consults regularly with transport providers, local Council and other stakeholders on these bus and transport changes, which are also approved by Transport for NSW.
