Freeway Plan Abandoned


Taken from Roads and Traffic News, August 1996 

A freeway plan on Sydney’s north shore has been abandoned. The Minister for Roads, Michael Knight, announced that a corridor of land reserved to link the F3 and the M2 would be abandoned.

The move will free 11 hectares of bushland areas across Lane Cove River Valley from the prospect of freeway development.

The 6km corridor stretched from Pearce’s Corner, Wahroonga to West Pymble and skirted Lane Cove River National Park. It had been preserved for road use since 1988.

Mr Knight said the Minister for Urban Affairs and Planning, Craig Knowles, had advised that the government’s intends the bushland area to remain as open space.
