Have your say on intersection improvements for Hoxton Park and Hill Roads at Lurnea
Wednesday, 20 July 2016
Community members are invited to provide feedback on proposed intersectionimprovements for Hoxton Park and Hill roads at Lurnea.
State Member for Holsworthy, Melanie Gibbons MP said the NSW Government would fund the work through the $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Point program, which aims to reduce congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s major road corridors.
“Hoxton Park Road forms a key connection between the Hume Highway at Liverpool and Cowpasture Road at Hoxton Park.
“Currently, motorists travelling westbound on Hoxton Park Road use the left through lane to slow down and turn into Hill Road, causing delays for motorists travelling through the intersection.
“This is a great win for the many locals who utilise this road and know all to well the congestion and the delays that can be faced at this intersection” ,” Ms Gibbons said.
An analysis of crash data from January 2010 to December 2014 revealed 21 crashes were reported at the intersection, including 11 crashes that resulted in injury.
Roads and Maritime Services is proposing to build a dedicated left turn lane to improve traffic flow for westbound motorists and improve safety by reducing the number of rearend crashes and crashes caused by motorists changing lanes.
An 80 metre section of Hoxton Park Road would be widened to accommodate the new turning lane and the traffic lights relocated at the intersection.
No stopping zones would also be installed on both sides of Hill Road, between Hoxton Park Road and Taloma Avenue.
The bus stop on Hoxton Park Road would be temporarily relocated outside of the work zone and reinstated once work is complete.
Feedback can be provided by Friday 29 July to project delivery partner DownerMouchel on 1800 332 660 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
All comments will be considered and the community kept informed as the project progresses.
