Permanent electronic message sign on Willoughby Road, Willoughby

The NSW Government is funding this project as part of its $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce congestion and improve travel time on Sydney’s busiest road corridors.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services has completed the installation of the permanent electronic message sign at Willoughby Road, Willoughby. Many thanks for your patience while we carried out this work.

Project background

There are about 200 permanent electronic message signs throughout NSW. They are programmed by the Transport Management Centre (TMC), which manages and monitors the road network 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

We place electronic message signs before key journey decision points to provide real-time updates to road users. This allows them to make more informed decisions about their route and can improve travel time by giving them the right information at the right point on the network so they can avoid delays.

Project features

The sign would provide northbound road users with advance notice of planned and unplanned incidents on Mowbray Road, Penshurst Street, Boundary Street, Victoria Avenue, Warringah Road, Eastern Valley Way and Archbold Road.

Community engagement

Roads and Maritime sought community feedback in December 2016. We received feedback from 28 people on nine different matters. There were eight people who supported the proposal and 20 that did not. Key points raised included support for the proposal, alternative locations, the signs usefulness and the sign’s visual impact.
