About the project

Works began in mid-May 2018 and were completed in April 2019. 

The upgrade was part of Council’s $1.3 billion commitment to more than 90 road improvement projects to take action on congestion. The upgrade focused on a range of solutions to improve the existing road network, getting residents home quicker and safer.

As part of the project, Council upgraded Green Camp Road between Manly and Rickertt Roads, with joint funding from Council and the Australian Government. The project has improved safety for all road users, reduced traffic congestion and improved travel times.

Features of the upgrade included:

  • providing two through lanes in each direction on Green Camp Road from Manly Road to just past the Rickertt Road intersection
  • providing three through lanes on the Green Camp Road northbound carriageway adjacent to the Tilley Road intersection
  • signalising the Green Camp Road and Tilley Road intersection
  • widening the Tilley Road approach to provide one left-turn lane and one right-turn lane
  • providing two through lanes on Rickertt Road in each direction for 200 metres from the Green Camp Road intersection
  • widening the Rickertt Road approach at the Green Camp Road intersection to provide a separate left-turn lane and two right-turn lanes
  • raising the road level and upgrading existing culverts under the Green Camp Road and Tilley Road intersection to improve flood immunity to 1% AEP (1 in 100 year) 
  • providing on-road cycle lanes and off-road shared paths
  • providing fauna crossing facilities, fauna fencing and wildlife awareness zones
  • providing improved pedestrian footpath connections
  • a new car park 250 metres north of the Green Camp Road and Tilley Road intersection for visitors to Green Camp Road Park
  • landscaping treatments.

Project benefits

The project has:

  • improved travel times and reliability for motorists and public transport services

  • provided fauna crossing facilities, including arboreal crossings and glider poles, fauna fences and wildlife awareness zones
  • provided on-road cycle lanes and off-road shared paths along Green Camp Road
  • improved flood immunity.
