Project information

The Australian and NSW Governments are investing $3.4 million to improve traffic flow and safety at the intersection. An additional $700,000 has been funded through Lake Macquarie City Council, Hunter and Central Coast Development Corporation and developer contributions.

The project will improve traffic flow and safety at the intersection.

Transport for NSW will carry out the work, which includes:

  • extending the right turning lane on Macquarie Road into Munibung Road
  • reconfiguring the lanes on Myall Road to provide two extended right turn lanes, a through lane and left turn lane
  • reconfiguring the existing left turn lane from Macquarie Road into Munibung Road to be a combined through and left turn lane
  • extending the two southbound departure lanes on Macquarie Road by 200 metres from the intersection. This includes installing a new footpath, new bicycle lane and relocating power poles
  • providing an additional pedestrian crossing on the northern side of the intersection (Cardiff Toyota to Cardiff RSL)
  • upgrading pedestrian ramps
  • making adjustments to the kerbs and traffic light infrastructure at the intersection to better accommodate heavy vehicle movements
  • banning the right turn from Munibung Road. Motorists would need to use Pendlebury Road to turn right onto Macquarie Road
  • installation of new road drainage on Macquarie Road
  • removing parking permanently along sections of Macquarie Road to improve traffic flow through the intersection, particularly during peak hours. We have included a diagram to explain the project design, including areas where parking will be permanently removed.

Work will start on Sunday 22 May 2022 and is expected to be completed in early 2023, weather permitting.
