Work to reduce travel time for motorists at Caringbah will be carried out this month following community consultation on parking changes around the intersection of the Kingsway and Taren Point Road.

The plans are designed to keep traffic flowing and improve efficiency by making more lanes available, especially during the busy weekday peak periods.

The changes will extend the No Parking restrictions on the Kingsway between Taren Point Road and Kareena Road and between Willarong Road and Taren Point Road.

Parking will be restricted in the morning and afternoon peak, between 6-10am and 3-7pm on weekdays (and on weekends west bound between Willarong Road and Taren Point Road). 6 spaces will be removed east bound on the Kingsway between Taren Point Road and Chamberlain Avenue.

The parking changes are not expected to have a major impact on residential parking. Many residents in the area have off-street parking and the changes will help deliver consistent driving conditions.

The clearway hours are when traffic is busiest and the road is most congested. They also are consistent with the existing clearway that was installed last year along Taren Point Road.

The changes come into effect when new parking signs and posts will be installed on Monday 22 and Tuesday 23 July, weather permitting, between 8pm and 5am.

During the installation work, there could be temporary traffic changes to ensure the work zone is safe. Please keep to speed limits and follow signs and traffic controllers’ directions.
