I welcome the new weekend and extended weekday clearways along Taren Point Road between Captain Cook Bridge, Taren Point and Kingsway, Caringbah which start 6am Monday 22 October 2018.
Taren Point Road is the gateway to the eastern end of the Shire. Most eastern Shire road users leave and enter the Shire through it.
The new weekend and extended weekday clearways will operate in both directions on Taren Point Road between Captain Cook Bridge and The Boulevarde/Captain Cook Drive from 6am to 7pm on weekdays and from 9am to 6pm on weekends and public holidays. On Taren Point Road between The Boulevarde/Captain Cook Drive and Kingsway, the new weekday clearways will operate in both directions from 6am to 10am and from 3pm to 7pm, Monday to Friday.
Additional parking restrictions will also start at the intersections of Taren Point Road with The Boulevard/Captain Cook Drive and Kingsway.
To provide replacement parking, the NSW Government provided funding to Sutherland Shire Council to reconfigure kerbside parking on Box Road (west of Taren Point Road). There will be an additional 17 angle parking spaces on Box Road and nine 2P parking spaces on Kumulla Road for business customers.
I have strongly advocated for more or extended clearways on main roads in the Sutherland Shire.
