$2.5 million upgrade to improve travel on Military Road

Motorists travelling on Military Road in New South Wales will soon benefit from a $2.5 million upgrade to the tidal flow system to improve travel times starting this month.

“The Spit and Military road corridors form the main arterial route between the Northern Beaches and the Sydney CBD, used by thousands of road users daily,” a Roads and Maritime Spokesperson said.

“A major upgrade of the tidal flow system on Military Road will be carried out between Ben Boyd Road at Neutral Bay and Hampden Avenue at Cremorne as part of a wider program to reduce congestion in the area.

“Stage one work [starting this week] will involve a 450-metre long trench being dug for new cabling alongside the footpath on the southern side of Military Road.

“Stage two work expected to start in August will involve an upgrade to the control system and installation of new cabling linking to new signs to better direct motorists.”

To minimise disruptions to road users, both stages of work will be carried out at night from Sundays to Thursdays from 9pm to 5am, weather permitting.

Residents are being advised in advance and every effort will be made to reduce noise.
