Road safety improvements on Pittwater Road, Dee Why

The NSW Government is upgrading Sydney’s road network to provide easier, faster and safer journeys.

Transport for NSW is making changes to traffic conditions on Pittwater Road, Dee Why to improve safety for road users including pedestrians.

Between 2014 and 2019, there were 10 reported crashes when road users turn right from Pittwater Road into Delmar Parade, Dee Why. Some crashes have resulted in injuries. Most of these crashes occurred during the weekday morning peak period, in dry conditions.

To improve the safety at this intersection we will install a No Right Turn during weekday mornings between 6am and 10am.

The new No Right Turn will be operational from Monday 12 October.

These changes will reduce the risk of crashes for road users wanting to access Delmar Parade from Pittwater Road during the busy weekday mornings and improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists who were injured in crashes at this location over the past five years.

How will these changes affect me?

The No Right Turn will mean road users can no longer turn right into Delmar Parade from Pittwater Road on weekday mornings between 6am and 10am.

Road users can access Delmar Parade via Sturdee Parade, Pacific Parade and The Crescent. There is a dedicated right turn signal into Sturdee Parade at the intersection of Pittwater Road and Sturdee Parade.

How will the work affect you?

To minimise the impact on the road network, we will need to carry out this work at night. Our work may be noisy at times but we will do everything we can to minimise its impact, including completing the noisier tasks by 11pm.

There will be temporary traffic changes during our work hours to ensure the work zone is safe.

Please keep to speed limits and follow signs and traffic controllers’ directions. For the latest traffic updates, you can call 132 701, visit livetraffic.com or download the Live Traffic NSW App.
