Motorists will soon experience a quicker but safer journey through Taren Point Road at The Boulevarde and Captain Cook Drive at Caringbah.
The NSW Government is carrying out the work as part of the $100 million Congestion and Safety Program which aims to reduce congestion and improve safety throughout the State.
Roads and Maritime Services will be making improvements to the intersection of Taren Point Road, The Boulevarde and Captain Cook Drive at Caringbah.
The high number of vehicles turning right from Taren Point Road into The Boulevarde is resulting in congestion.
Work to reduce this congestion involves widening Taren Point Road to provide an additional right turning lane which will allow more southbound vehicles to travel through the intersection during each traffic light phase.
Work includes realigning the north-western corner of the intersection to allow for the road widening as well as relocating and widening the existing pedestrian crossing and kerb ramps on The Boulevarde.
The existing utilities on the south-western corner of the intersection will be replaced along with the existing foot path and fencing.
Work will include altering two signalised pedestrian crossings on Taren Point Road at the northern and southern ends of the intersection.
