Contract Awarded For Mona Vale Road Upgrade

November 2nd, 2018

Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes today announced the NSW Government has awarded the construction contract for the upgrade of Mona Vale Road East.

The $140 million project, between Foley Street at Mona Vale and Manor Road at Ingleside, will involve building additional climbing and descending lanes to improve travel times, and the introduction of median separation and a heavy vehicle arrester bed to help address the road’s tragic crash history.

The contract has been awarded to Georgiou Group Pty Ltd and onsite works are expected to commence in February next year, after the summer holiday period. The project is expected to be completed in 2022. 

“This is a huge win for our community,” Rob Stokes said today.

“This upgrade has been talked about for decades – so to now have it fully funded and ready to go is fantastic.

“The key focus of this project is making this notorious stretch of road safer for our community.

“An enormous amount of work has been completed over recent years to get to this point – including geotechnical assessments, property acquisitions and detailed road design.

“There are thousands of motorists who use Mona Vale Road every day and they all know just how important this safety upgrade is. 

“As with all major projects, funding is always an issue and that’s why it was so important we secured the necessary funds in last year’s State Budget.

“Along with everyone in our community I look forward to work getting underway on this project early in the New Year,” Rob Stokes said.

Detailed road design works are continuing for Mona Vale Road West, between Powder Works Road at Ingleside and McCarrs Creek Road at Terrey Hills.

Major improvements to the intersection of Mona Vale Road and Forest Way at Terrey Hills have also recently been completed to assist travel flow, particularly during the morning peak.
