DEC 2021Contract awarded

We are pleased to announce the contract for construction of the Linden Street upgrade has been awarded to Fulton Hogan.

Construction on the upgrade of Linden Street will begin in early 2022, to reduce congestion and improve safety, traffic flow and journey reliability. Three intersections will be upgraded along the corridor, with an extra lane for those heading south and an extra lane for those heading north between River Road and Leonay Street.

We will keep the community informed on the start of work and progress on the upgrade. Please view or download the December 2021 community update (PDF, 2.06Mb) for more information.

Project information

The Linden Street corridor is a key east-west connection between Bangor Bypass and Princes Highway. It is used by around 6,000 motorists and 500 bus passengers an hour in peak periods and is crucial to keeping people moving around the Sutherland Shire and Greater Sydney.

To help get you where you need to be, Transport for NSW is upgrading three intersections along the corridor. These are:

  • River Road and Linden Street
  • Linden Street and Leonay Street
  • Linden Street and The Grand Parade.
  • Saving up to eight minutes on a daily return journey in busy periods between Menai and Sutherland.
  • Getting traffic moving on this critical corridor by reducing congestion and improving traffic flow at this pinch point.
  • Improving safety for road users.

Upgrades at River Road and Linden Street

  • Road widening to provide an extra through lane for traffic heading south towards Sutherland.
  • Moving the existing concrete median and traffic islands to create space for the extra lane.
  • Changing the road markings on Linden Street so both lanes can turn right onto River Road to head north towards Menai.
  • Removing the left turn from Linden Street into Galga Street to improve safety and reduce the risk of collision.
  • Redirecting the existing footpath running alongside Linden Street through Galga Street and Oakwood Street to allow room for the extra lane.
  • Adjusting the traffic light phasing to give more green light time to the busiest parts of the intersection.
  • Tree removal, trimming and landscaping.

Upgrades at Linden Street and Leonay Street

  • Road widening to create an extra lane for traffic traveling south on Linden Street towards Sutherland.
  • Moving the existing concrete median and traffic lights to create space for the extra lane.
  • Adding right-turn arrows to the Leonay Street traffic signals to allow easier and safer right turns onto Linden Street.
  • Tree removal, trimming and landscaping.

Upgrades at Linden Street and The Grand Parade

  • Road widening to create an extra lane for traffic traveling north on Linden Street towards Menai.
  • Installing a traffic island so road users can only turn left and right out of The Grand Parade.
  • Adjusting the traffic light phasing, taking the time from the through movement on The Grand Parade and giving it to the busier parts of the intersection.
  • Tree removal, trimming and landscaping.
