Warringah Freeway upgrade


Upgrades to Warringah Freeway are underway. These works are part of Transport NSW’s improvements to our integrated road and public transport network. 

What is happening?

Significant road works are planned across the next 18 months. The improvements will simplify traffic flows and make it easier for drivers to navigate, as well as create connections to new tunnels as part of the Western Harbour Tunnel projects.

Improvements include:

  • upgrades to interchanges at Falcon Street in Cammeray and High Street in North Sydney
  • relocation of road and shared user bridges
  • connection of the Warringah Freeway to the Western Harbour Tunnel via on and off-ramps
  • new and upgraded pedestrian and bike infrastructure
  • upgrades and modifications to bus infrastructure
  • other operational infrastructure including drainage, utilities, signage, lighting, CCTV and other traffic management systems.

The Military Road city bound bus lane is temporarily closed on approach to the Warringah Freeway for up to 18 months. A new continuous bus lane will be constructed during this period to improve the freeway and future travel to the CBD. ​ ​

Traffic turning from Military Road onto the Warringah Freeway must merge into two lanes. Stay alert, follow the signs and consider public transport for faster trip.
