Safety improvement work in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park



Safety improvement work in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park
from Monday 15 May

The NSW Government is funding this $335,000 project to improve safety for road users.

Roads and Maritime Services will be carrying out the work on sections of Liberator General San Martin Drive, McCarrs Creek Road and West Head Road. The work will include replacing missing or damaged signs, replacing road marking, installing rail on existing safety barriers and investigating overtaking lane lengths with the view of improving them in Ku-ring-gai Chase NationalPark.

An analysis of five year crash data, between July 2009 and June 2014, for this area shows 15 crashes in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, 14 resulted in injuries and one resulted in a fatality. A motorcycle was involved in all of these crashes.

This work aims to provide better advanced warning and greater guidance for motorists drivingaround bends and to reduce the occurrence and severity of crashes.

We have included a map to show the location of the work.

Our work schedule

We will be on site for five shifts a week for six weeks between Monday 15 May and Friday 14July, excluding public holidays, weather permitting. Our work hours will be between 7am and 5pm from Monday to Friday.

How will the work affect you?

Our work may be noisy at times but we will do everything we can to minimise its impact.

Traffic changes

Temporary traffic changes will continue to be in place to make sure the work zone is safe.

Lane closures will be in place and may affect travel times. Please keep to speed limits and follow sign and traffic controllers’ directions. For the latest traffic updates, you can call 132 701, visit or download the Live Traffic NSW App for iPhone, iPad andAndroid.
