Transport for NSW has completed work at the intersection of Brisbane Water Drive, Jirrah Avenue and Koolinda Avenue at Point Clare.

This upgrade is the final project to be completed as part of a broader program of safety improvement work along Brisbane Water Drive.

Project information

Brisbane Water Drive is a State Road connecting the Central Coast Highway at West Gosford to Railway Street and Blackwall Road at Woy Woy. It is the primary link between Woy Woy and Gosford.

A route safety investigation was completed in 2016 along Brisbane Water Drive between Glenrock Parade and Manooka Road at Point Clare.

The route safety investigation was carried out to determine the safety performance of the route and identify road safety improvements and priorities along this section of Brisbane Water Drive.

Transport for NSW identified priorities for improvement to this section of the road in the short, medium and long term to address safety deficiencies that were identified.

Takari Avenue

Safety improvements were completed on Takari Avenue in mid-2019. Work involved installing a dedicated right turn bay into Takari Avenue from Brisbane Water Drive.

Penang Street

Road widening was carried out in July 2019 to provide space for vehicles turning right into Penang Street while also allowing vehicles to safely travel through the intersection. The right turn out of Penang Street was removed due to limited sight lines. More information is available in the March 2019 project notification (PDF, 45.5Kb).

Lorraine Avenue

Work to improve sight distance for vehicles turning out of Lorraine Avenue started in March 2019 and was completed in August 2019. A new pedestrian path was also installed on the western side of Brisbane Water Drive. More information is available in the March 2019 project pdate (PDF, 100Kb).

Jirrah Avenue and Koolinda Avenue

Safety improvements at the Jirrah Avenue and Koolinda Avenue intersection were completed in June 2020.
