Proposed electronic message sign on Ryde Road, West Pymble
The NSW Government is funding a proposal to install a permanent electronic message sign on Ryde Road, West Pymble as part of its $246 million Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s main roads particularly during weekday peak periods.
Roads and Maritime Services sought feedback on two possible locations for the installation of an electronic sign on Ryde Road in September 2014 and March 2015.
After reviewing the feedback, we have decided to proceed with installing the electronic sign 170 metres north of the intersection with Lady Game Drive.
Project objectives and benefits
The project is part of the NSW Government’s $246 million Pinch Point program which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s main roads particularly during week day peak periods.
The sign would provide northbound road users with advance notice of planned and unplanned incidents and events.
What happens next?
Roads and Maritime will carry out the work which includes:
- Excavating and putting in foundations
- Installing the electronic sign
- Installing a concrete platform for the maintenance vehicle
- Moving the Yanko Road directional sign about 80 metres north of its current location
- Trenching and installing power and telecommunications cables
- Planting around the maintenance platform and base of the electronic sign
- Testing the sign.
Roads and Maritime invited the community and key stakeholders to provide feedback on this proposal in September 2014 and March 2015.
The Community Consultation Report identifies the issues and suggestions raised by the community, and how they have been responded to and considered. The local community will continue to be inforned as the project progresses.
