Community consultation opens on clearway extensions
Public comment opens today for four new weekend and extended weekday clearways in Sydney, including the Princes Highway between Kirrawee and Blakehurst.
The NSW government is proposing new weekend and extended weekday clearways for five of Sydney’s busiest road corridors to improve traffic flow, particularly on weekends.
There are now more than 15 million trips by car across the city each weekend.
The NSW government has created a $21 million fund to help with identifying alternative parking across proposed clearways for the next four years.
While clearways already operate on large parts of Sydney’s road network, the clearways network has not been reviewed in several decades.
The NSW government has held initial consultations with affected councils.
Members of the public can nominate a road they think should be considered for a new or extended clearway at www.transport.nsw.gov.au/clearways
Members of the public can attend information sessions for the Princes Highway proposal as follows:
Saturday 8 March 9am-11am at Gymea North Public School, Ruby Road, Gymea
Thursday 13 March 6pm-8pm at Sylvania Community Centre, Canberra Road, Sylvania.
If people can’t make these dates, they can provide their input by Friday 28 March:

by calling 1300 706 232,
by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or
