Lane Cove Road

Lane Cove Road

Lane Cove Road is a major suburban arterial road in Sydney, Australia. It forms part of Metroad 3 and is located in the Ryde local government area.

The southern end of Lane Cove Road connects with Blaxland Road at Top Ryde, about one kilometer north of Victoria Road. Lane Cove Road extends generally NNE, crossing Epping Road at a grade separated intersection at North Ryde , and partly connecting with the M2 Hills Motorway.

Lane Cove Road ends at de Burgh's Bridge where Metroad 3 crosses the Lane Cove River into the Ku-ring-gai local government area and continues, now called Ryde Road, to the junction with the Pacific Highway at Gordon.

Lane Cove Road is the main access road from the central and southern suburbs of Sydney to the North Ryde/Macquarie Park commercial and industrial area.

The name of Lane Cove Road originates from the fact that it was the first road from Ryde to Gordon. Prior to 1890, the village at what is now called Gordon was called Lane Cove. This is a source of some confusion, since Lane Cove Road does not lead towards the present-day suburb ( and local government area ) called Lane Cove, which lies to the east, not north, from Ryde.
