The Hon. DUNCAN GAY: Roads and Maritime Services conducted a six-month trial to measure the
traffic impact of closing the right-turn lane from Spit Road into Pearl Bay Avenue. Roads and Maritime
Services measured travel times with Pearl Bay Avenue both closed and open from February to July 2013. The
Spit Road corridor is part of the main route between the Northern Beaches and the central business district and
is used by an estimated 78,000 vehicles a day, along with buses which carry about 60,000 passengers each day. 9 August 2013 LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL 23009
The traffic analysis report commissioned by Roads and Maritime Services unequivocally concludes that keeping
the right-turn lane into Pearl Bay Avenue closed during the morning peak has a significant impact on traffic
congestion and journey times upstream into the Spit Road corridor, with an average increase of 40 per cent in
travelling time. The traffic analysis showed that the morning peak trial closure added an average of nine minutes
to the travel times for south-bound motorists on Spit Road.
On Mondays, when the trip time is longest, the closure added an average of 20 minutes—doubling
travel time for motorists. On Fridays, when the trip time was shortest, the closure added an average of
10 minutes. Increasing journey times by 40 per cent is not something we can reasonably expect commuters to
endure. As a result, I advise the House that I have accepted the results of the trial and the recommendation from
Roads and Maritime Services to keep the right-turn lane at Pearl Bay Avenue open during the morning peak.
The right-turn lane into Pearl Bay Avenue will be open for only 2½ hours a day during the morning peak period,
which is a total of just 12½ hours per week. In addition, under the arrangements the right-hand turn will not—
and I emphasise "not"—be open during school holidays. The traffic analysis makes it clear that on weekdays we
do need that extra capacity for the morning peak. To address safety concerns, Roads and Maritime Services will
work with Mossman Municipal Council— [Time expired.]
