State route no 33 (ring road no 3)

State route no. 33 Performs a major circumferential function for Sydney. The route has three distinct standards; 1) mona vale to north st. Ives (15 km) - a two lane rural road constructed on a substandard alignment, which carries an excessive volume of traffic. 2) North st. Ives to ryde (14 km) - an adequate six lane divided urban arterial road. Substandard sections are the oversaturated intersection with the pacific highway, reduced capacity through the ryde shopping centre, narrow lanes and the 3 lane wide ryde bridge. 3) Ryde to blakehurst (22 km) - a substandard 4 lane undivided arterial road passing through a number of shopping centres with at grade intersections at all major intersecting arterials. This section has an adverse crash history, largely due to high crash numbers at major signal controlled intersections. Work has been commenced on widening 4 km of the ryde to blakehurst section to 6 lanes and on widening 4 km of the north st. Ives to mona vale section to 4 lanes (a).
