Intersection Upgrade

6 February 2019

Council was on-site for today's announcement of NSW Government funding to improve the safety of the intersection of Longueville Road, Northwood Road and River Road West (the intersection at The Diddy).

The NSW Government and Council will each contribute $1 million towards the upgrade. The works will include installing a dedicated right turn lane for motorists continuing their journey onto Longueville Road towards Lane Cove Village as well as introducing right turn movement onto River Road West from Longueville Road.

Mayor of Lane Cove, Clr Pam Palmer said, “Lane Cove Council has worked with RMS on an improved design for this very complex and busy intersection.” 

“Council is committed to safer roads in Lane Cove and everyone who uses this busy section of our road network will benefit.”

Member for Lane Cove, Anthony Roberts MP, said the proposed improvements would be delivered as part of the NSW Government’s program to improve safety on Sydney’s busiest road corridors. “Around 22,000 vehicles travel through this intersection each day so it is important to ensure these motorists are provided with a safer intersection", Mr Roberts said.

The below plan is a draft concept plan only. Roads and Maritime Services and Lane Cove Council will keep the community informed as the upgrade progresses.
