Construction Update

The NSW Government is investing $140 million to upgrade Mona Vale Road between Manor Road, Ingleside and Foley Street, Mona Vale, from two lanes to a four-lane divided carriageway improving safety and traffic efficiency. Work is well underway across the full 3.2-kilometre length of the upgrade.

Construction has progressed along the corridor and motorists would have noticed the two traffic switches carried out over the last few months. Traffic is now travelling on the new road pavement allowing us to continue work on the retaining walls, which once complete will form part of the new westbound lanes.

Between the months of November to February, we have:

  • completed two traffic switches              
  • built new road pavement
  • started work on the new left-hand lane turn      
  • constructed new kerbs into Foley Street
  • laid asphalt

Upcoming traffic changes

There will be a traffic change between Foley Street and Ponderosa Parade in May 2022, weather permitting. This is so we can continue building the new eastbound lanes, east of Samuel Street.

This traffic switch will involve moving traffic onto the new road pavement west of Foley Street and Ponderosa Parade. The roundabout will be moved closer to Ponderosa Parade to facilitate the new traffic changes.

As part of these works, we will need to close access to Emma Street and Foley Street, before and during the traffic switch.

We will notify nearby impacted residents ahead of this work occurring.

Activities planned in the coming months

Manor Road to Foley Street

We will continue to build the new sections of road, which includes:

  • continuation of excavation of earthworks piling and retaining wall construction drainage construction
  • kerb and barrier placement
  • removal of power poles near Foley Street laying of asphalt
  • installation of road signage and line marking
  • landscaping
  • traffic switch from Foley Street to Ponderosa Parade

There will be temporary traffic changes around worksites, with traffic control in place to guide motorists. Electronic message signs will show any changed conditions.

How will the work affect you?

Our utility and earthworks use a range of equipment, including excavators with rock hammers, rippers, tipper trucks, vacuum trucks, road saws, rollers, street sweepers, light vehicles and light towers.

The work may be noisy at times, and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

During night work, we aim to direct light away from residential properties and turn off equipment and vehicles when not in use. Noise blankets are used where possible to reduce the noise from activities taking place within a confined area.

Residents who may be heavily impacted by the out of hours work and are eligible for alternative accommodation will be notified at least 48 hours before the work.

Our work schedule

Our standard working hours are between 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday and between 8am to 6pm on Saturdays.

Out of hours work may happen between 8pm and Sam with up to three shifts per week, weather permitting.

We will not work more than two consecutive nights in the same area. We will advise you before we start night work near your property.

Thank you for your ongoing patience during this work.

Upgrading Mona Vale Road will improve the way you move in and around your local area.

We will continue to inform you as the project progresses.
