Mona Vale Road East Upgrade: September - October 2023 Pictorial Update
In reviewing some of the earliest pictorial updates it is apparent that this is a much shorter and much smoother road than when the contractors commenced - if only shown through the lesser amount of photos to be taken along the route of the works.
The 2023-2024 NSW Government Labor budget provides $348,000.00 in funding for planning works for the Mona Vale Road West widening from Kimbriki Tip to the Baha’i Temple. The Mona Vale Road West Upgrade entails upgrading 3.4 kilometres of Mona Vale Road from two lanes to four lanes between McCarrs Creek Road, Terrey Hills and Powder Works Road, Ingleside.
Transport for NSW provides the following September 2023 Community update and out-of-hours works Notice for October 2023.
Mona Vale Road East Upgrade: Outside Of Standard Hours Work Notification - October 2023
Manor Road to Foley Street
To minimise traffic disruptions and reduce safety risks to the workers and road users, we need to carry out some work at night in September. Work will take place on Mona Vale Road between Manor Road and Foley Street from 8pm to 6am Tuesday 3 October to Tuesday 31 October, weather permitting.
In line with our environmental license, we will not work more than two consecutive nights and no more than three nights each week.
Our upcoming work
In October we will continue work on:
- road maintenance, gate adjustments, barrier movements, line marking, and plant delivery/pick up along the project alignment
- traffic realignment of Mona Vale Road from Lane Cove Road to Foley Street
- construction of the traffic signals around the Ponderosa Parade, Samuel Street and Mona Vale Road intersection
- landscaping along the project alignment.
There will be temporary traffic changes to ensure the work zone is safe for workers and road users. This work will be weather dependent and if it does not occur on these nights, we will look to carry out the work the following week.
Please keep to speed limits and follow signs and traffic controllers’ directions.

Community Update: September 2023
The NSW Government is upgrading Mona Vale Road between Manor Road, Ingleside and Foley Street, Mona Vale, from two lanes to four lanes to ease congestion, reduce travel times and improve safety.
Over the past three months, construction has been progressing well. You may have noticed we have;
- almost finished surfacing the new lanes on Mona Vale Road
- finished building the stormwater detention basin
- finished building new kerbs and footpaths
- prepared for landscaping
- built a section of the permanent concrete median near the western end of the project
- started building the new truck arrester bed
- finished installing traffic barriers and steel railings on top of the new retaining walls
- finished placing the first two layers of asphalt along the full alignment. We will place the final layer of asphalt and carry out linemarking later this year.
Getting ready to open to traffic
We would like to thank the community for their ongoing patience while we have been upgrading Mona Vale Road East. It has been a long journey with unprecedented weather and challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is expected that most of the major work will be complete by December this year. This includes opening the new signalised intersection in place of the existing roundabout at Ponderosa Parade and Samuel Street, finishing laying all the new road surfaces and installing the fauna bridge and underpass. Some minor work will be carried out in the new year, including landscaping, fauna fencing, some traffic barriers and signage.
New fauna bridge
On the evening of Friday 18 August, we closed Mona Vale Road to complete the lifting of the new Fauna Bridge near Lane Cove Road.
The fauna bridge is the first of its kind dedicated to animals to safely cross Mona Vale Road, linking the Ku-ring-gai and Garigal National Parks.
Ponderosa Parade roundabout
Planning is now underway for the reconfiguration of the Ponderosa/Samuel Street roundabout to a full signalised intersection. The posts for the new traffic lights will be installed soon.
Over the next few months, you will see us:
- Work on the Ponderosa Parade/Samuel Street intersection
- preparing areas for landscaping
- completing the works on the fauna bridge
- installing safety barriers along the side of the new road
- continuing with construction of the new permanent concrete median.
