New Illawarra Road, Menai


Project overview

Transport for NSW originally proposed to replace the existing signalised pedestrian crossing on New Illawarra Road, Manai, with a pedestrian bridge, aiming to improve the road's traffic flow. It also aimed to improve safety and connectivity between the eastern and western sides of New Illawarra Road for both pedestrians and cyclists.
