Project information


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

High volumes of traffic currently travel through the intersection during the morning and afternoon peak periods. The high volume of motorists turning off the Pacific Highway onto Mona Vale Road is causing significant delays for northbound road users travelling through the intersection.

Since opening to traffic in March 2019, this upgrade is delivering more reliable trips for all road users.


The project is helping:

  • ease congestion along Pacific Highway by improving traffic flow onto Mona Vale Road and Ryde Road
  • reduce travel times during journeys by increasing number of turning lanes to move more motorists through the intersection
  • improve safety for pedestrians by increasing visibility at zebra crossings create more reliable trips for Pymble, Gordon and other local residents wanting to connect to major roads in the area.

What happens next

We will be back on site to complete final street lighting in the next few months.

Roads and Maritime sought community feedback on the project in October 2016. We sent letters to the local community inviting feedback. We received feedback from eight people and one organisation. Of the feedback we received, two were supportive, one was against the proposed improvements and the others were neutral. All comments were considered and incorporated into our decision making process.
