Vitally-needed upgrades worth $10.2 million have been completed in Warriewood and will improve local road access and flood management.

Students from Narrabeen North Public School (pictured above with Mayor Regan) were invited to test drive the upgrades before Macpherson Street and Warriewood Road were reopened on 15 December. 

Warriewood residents can look forward to major safety and accessibility improvements. The upgrades formed part of the strategic planning for the Warriewood Valley Urban Release Area and would reduce the impacts of flooding and improve traffic flow.

Major works completed include:

  • Widening of Macpherson Street, which has also been raised by 2.2m, and the construction of a bridge over Narrabeen Creek to reduce the impacts of flooding
  • Installation of a roundabout at the intersection of Macpherson Street and Warriewood Road to manage and improve traffic flow
  • Construction of shared pathways between Boondah Road and Warriewood Road to improve pedestrian safety and link to Pittwater Road
  • Service works for electricity, water and gas
  • Additional kerb, gutter, footpath and drainage works in Warriewood Road from Macpherson Street to Vuko Place
