Intersection improvement work completed on Pennant Hills Road at Pennant Hills
6 SEPTEMBER 2017
Motorists are enjoying a smoother journey through one of the busiest intersections along Pennant Hills Road with improvement work completed at The Crescent intersection at Pennant Hills.
Member for Hornsby Matt Kean MP said the upgrade work was delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Point Program which aims to reduce congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s busiest corridors.
“Before these improvements were carried out, road users experienced congestion at the intersection during morning and afternoon peak as it is so close to Pennant Hills railway station,” Mr Kean said.
“Roads and Maritime Services invited feedback from the community on the proposed improvements in December last year and in May this year and received comments from 91 people and one organisation.
“Work was carried out from late June this year to modify the existing median to extend the right turn northbound lane by 95 metres on Pennant Hills Road between The Crescent and Fisher Avenue to ease congestion for motorists.”
Mr Kean said these improvements are improving traffic flow for motorists travelling through the intersection, particularly during the evening peak.
“The changes have improved the efficiency of the intersection by reducing the queue length of right turning motorists from Pennant Hills Road into The Crescent,” Mr Kean said.
“With around 63,500 motorists travelling through the intersection each day, it was essential these improvements were carried out to enable motorists to experience a safer and more efficient journey.
“The community and motorists are thanked for their patience while work was carried out.”
