New and extended clearways between Parramatta Road at Auburn and Hume Highway at Bankstown
17 May 2017
Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Roads, Maritime and Freight Kevin Anderson today announced new clearways will be installed on St Hilliers Road, Boorea Street, Olympic Drive, Joseph Street, Rookwood Road and Stacey Street to improve traffic flow along the key corridor between Auburn and Bankstown.
Mr Anderson said the clearways are being installed as part of the NSW Government’s $121 million Clearways Program, which aims to reduce delays and congestion by maximising use of existing road space.
“Introducing clearways on this key transport corridor through Sydney will reduce congestion for motorists and improve journey reliability,” Mr Anderson said.
“Clearways on St Hilliers Road, Boorea Street, Olympic Drive, Joseph Street, Rookwood Road and Stacey Street from Parramatta Road to Hume Highway will help traffic flow by restricting parking and allowing vehicles to be towed from these areas if they stop illegally or breakdown.
“Implementing the clearways will ensure all lanes are available to traffic during peak hours.”
The road corridor now has clearways in place during weekday peak hours and ‘no stopping’ and ‘no parking’ zones along the majority of the corridor.
“The new clearways along this 7.3 kilometres length mean the NSW Government has now delivered more than 188 kilometres of new and extended clearways since the end of 2013,” Mr Anderson said.
“The new clearways will take effect from Monday 5 June and be in place in both directions from 6am to 7pm on weekdays and from 9am to 6pm on weekends and public holidays.
“Motorists are reminded any vehicles parked in the clearway on or after this date risk being fined and towed.”
Work to install new clearway signage will be carried out between Monday 22 May and Sunday 4 June from 8pm to 5am, weather permitting.
Motorists are reminded not to stop or park on a section of road when a clearway is in effect.
Parked vehicles can be reported to the Transport Management Centre on 131 700.
