Extended clearway hours on Hume Highway between Liverpool and Casula
11 December 2015
The next clearway extension in the NSW Government’s clearways strategy to reduce congestion on some Sydney’s major road corridors will start from Monday 14 December on the Hume Highway between Liverpool and Casula.
Melanie Gibbons MP, the State Member for Holsworthy said the extension to clearway hours on the Hume Highway builds on the NSW Government’s $121 million clearways program, which aims to free up road space, improve traffic flow on some of Sydney’s busiest roads and get people moving.
“With congestion currently costing Sydney around $5.1 billion each year, the NSW Government is committed to maximising the use of existing road space to improve reliability and deliver travel time savings for motorists,” Ms Gibbons said.
“The weekday clearway hours on the Hume Highway between Orange Grove Road at Liverpool and Campbelltown Road at Casula will be extended to operate in both directions during peak traffic periods.
“Currently, clearway hours are in operation northbound from 6am to 10am and southbound from 3pm to 7am on weekdays.
“From Monday 14 December clearway hours will be extended to operate in both directions from 6am to 10am and 3pm to 7pm on weekdays and provide more reliable and efficient travel with improved traffic flow on the road.
“The existing No Stopping and No Parking restrictions on this road will continue to operate outside these clearway times.
“Night work to install the new signs will be carried out from Friday 11 December to Sunday 13 December between 7pm and 5am, weather permitting.
“Motorists are reminded vehicles left on a clearway risk being towed and fined.”
“To report a vehicle parked in a clearway call the Transport Management Centre on 131 700.
