Roads and Maritime Services is progressing plans to upgrade the intersection of President Avenue and Gymea Bay Road at Gymea to improve traffic flow and travel times for motorists.
The improvements will be delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $100 million Congestion and Safety Program which aims to ease congestion and improve safety on our roads.
Roads and Maritime is working with Sutherland Shire Council to develop a design for this busy intersection to improve safety and efficiency for the 40,000 vehicles which use it each day.
A high number of vehicles travel along President Avenue every day, resulting in congestion during the morning and afternoon peak periods. This work will aim to improve travel times for motorists.
Work along President Avenue will include providing a dedicated left turn bay and an extended right turn bay from President Avenue into Gymea Bay Road northbound to improve traffic flows.
The southern side of President Avenue will also be widened to provide a dedicated left turn bay from President Avenue into Gymea Bay Road southbound.
The work is expected to start later this year.
The community and stakeholders will be kept up to date as the project progresses.
