Member for Ku-ring-gai Alister Henskens SC MP today announced the NSW Government proposes to improve the Pacific Highway at the intersection of Mona Vale Road at Pymble to ease congestion and improve travel times.
Mr Henskens said the proposal is being considered as part of the NSW Government’s $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Point program.
“The Pacific Highway forms part of the A1 route connecting Sydney with the north and south coasts while Mona Vale and Ryde roads provide important access as part of the A3 corridor to major commercial centres including Macquarie Park, Top Ryde and Homebush,” Mr Henskens said.
“With more than 50,000 motorists passing through the intersection every day, congestion on all approaches is experienced during peak travel times.
“Roads and Maritime Services is proposing to build an additional 70 metre right turn lane from the Pacific Highway onto Mona Vale Road and providing a dedicated left turn lane from the Pacific Highway onto Mona Vale Road.
“An additional lane would also be built to provide three right turn lanes from Mona Vale Road onto the Pacific Highway northbound, while keeping the existing through lane onto Ryde Road.
“It is expected these changes would reduce the length of queuing vehicles, which is blocking through traffic, allowing more efficient traffic flow and improving safety.”
Community members can provide feedback on the project by Friday November 4 via [email protected] or Pinch Points Program project team PO Box 973 Parramatta NSW 2124.
All feedback will be carefully considered and the community kept informed as the project progresses.
