Plans Accelerate For Mona Vale Road East Upgrade

Plans Accelerate For Mona Vale Road East Upgrade

February 28, 2018

Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes today announced the NSW Roads and Maritime Services is progressing plans for the upgrade of Mona Vale Road East, between Ingleside and Mona Vale, with tenders for the project now invited. 

The NSW Government is funding this essential project to improve safety and traffic flow for the thousands of motorists who use Mona Vale Road daily.

“This is a key milestone in this vital project,” Rob Stokes said today. 

“An enormous amount of preliminary work has been completed over recent years to reach this point where construction tenders are now being invited.

“All local motorists understand the challenges associated with the eastern section of Mona Vale Road - especially the inability to overtake slow moving heavy vehicles heading uphill. 

“The project will include building additional lanes for climbing and descending to improve travel times, as well as wider shoulders, median separation and a heavy vehicle arrester bed to enhance safety. 

“A three metre wide shared path will be built along Mona Vale Road between Lane Cove Road East and Foley Street to improve safety for pedestrians and cyclists. 

“Mona Vale Road is the main east-west link between the Pacific Highway at Pymble and Pittwater Road at Mona Vale - so it’s increasingly important for this project to be completed. 

“Roads and Maritime Services is asking prequalified and resourced contractors capable of delivering this complex civil project to submit tenders for the Mona Vale Road East upgrade project. 

“Work associated with this tender includes earth work, road and shoulder widening, utility relocation, intersection upgrades, slope stabilisation, fauna crossings and landscaping work.” 

Prospective tenderers are required to lodge tenders by 2.30pm on 30 April 2018 via the E-Tender website.
