Intersection plans yet to be finalised

Plans to upgrade six intersections on Blackwall Rd, Woy Woy, and Memorial Ave, Blackwall, at a cost of $19 million, have yet to be finalised, according to NSW Roads and Maritime Services.

A Review of Environmental Factors and an updated design is expected to be displayed for comment this year, according to Services' website.

Four intersections are on Blackwall Rd, with Victoria Rd, Farnell Rd, Allfield Rd and McMasters Rd.

Two are on Memorial Ave, the intersections with Gallipoli Ave and Maitland Bay Dr.

The proposals include traffic lights at Farnell Rd, no access out of Allfield Rd east onto Blackwall Rd, a new left turn bay from Blackwall Rd to Allfield Rd, a right turn lane from Blackwall Rd onto McMasters Rd, no right turn from McMasters Rd onto Blackwall Rd, and pedestrian lights south of the intersection.

It is proposed to provide dual right turn lanes from Maitland Bay Dr onto Memorial Ave and to provide two lanes northbound from Barrenjoey Rd, with separate left and right turn lanes out of Gallipoli Ave. There would be a raised pedestrian crossing in Blackwall Rd near Victoria Rd.

NSW Roads and Maritime Service reported that a community consultation in September received a total of 30 responses.

"The submissions received identified support for the intersection upgrade at Memorial Ave, Barrenjoey Rd and Maitland Bay Dr and the raised pedestrian crossing proposed on Blackwall Rd just south of Victoria Road roundabout," the consultation report said.

"All responses will be considered as we move into the next stages of the design," it stated.

"The community will be given another chance to comment with the Review of Environmental Factors and updated design is displayed for comment in 2021."
