It’s no surprise that Lane Cove gets a couple of mentions in an article this week about Sydney’s Worst Roads. The most congested road in Sydney is the Pacific Highway between Lane Cove and Roseville. Yep we agree – try getting to Westfield Chatswood on a Saturday! Epping Road also gets a mention. Read the article HERE.
