RBF has received the following information from NSW Roads and Maritime Services:
Roads and Maritime Services sought comments from the community and stakeholders on clearway proposals for the A3 route from Ryde Bridge, Ryde to Yanko Road, West Pymble in March 2014 and March 2015. We thank everyone who took the time to review the proposals and provided feedback. We have reviewed your feedback and responded to all of the issues raised in community consultation outcomes reports. A copy of each report is available to view on our website www.rms.nsw.gov.au/clearways.
We received feedback from 68 people in total, with overall support for the proposed changes. Most respondents acknowledged that introducing a clearway would help reduce congestion.
Roads and Maritime is currently reviewing the feedback received on the clearway proposals for the section of Ryde Road between Yanko Road, West Pymble and Pacific Highway, Pymble and also for the section of Mona Vale Road between Pacific Highway, Pymble and Kitchener Street, St Ives. It is expected that this review will be completed by the end of September 2015. The community will be informed of the outcome.
The clearway will operate in both directions from Monday 14 September:
Weekdays from 6am to 7pm
Weekends from 9am to 6pm
Alternative parking arrangements
In response to community and stakeholder feedback and following discussions with Council, we have built a new parking bay southbound on Lane Cove Road between Talavera Road and Waterloo Road at Macquarie Park.
What happens next?
We will be changing the clearway hours on Church Street/Devlin Street/Lane Cove Road/Ryde Road from Ryde Bridge, Ryde to Yanko Road, West Pymble in September 2015. Roads and Maritime will carry out work, which includes installation of signs and posts and linemarking. This work will take three shifts to complete from Friday 11 September to Monday 14 September, weather permitting. Our working hours will be from 7pm to 5am.
How will the work affect you?
We will make every effort to minimise noise by arranging the work in stages at different locations. Traffic changes There will be some temporary traffic changes to make sure the work zone is safe. Rolling lane closures will be in place and may affect travel times. Please keep to speed limits and follow the direction of traffic controllers and signs.
