NSW Government delivering for Eastern Creek
4 July 2018
‘More efficient and safer travel’ was the message delivered today by Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Roads, Maritime and Transport Kevin Anderson during a visit to inspect roadwork being carried out at Eastern Creek.
Mr Anderson said improvements are under way at the intersection of the Great Western Highway, Doonside Road and Brabham Drive at Eastern Creek as part of the NSW Government’s $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Points Program.
“The program aims to reduce congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s busiest corridors providing a smoother run for the thousands of vehicles, including a large number of heavy vehicles, travelling through this busy intersection each day,” Mr Anderson said.
“This intersection also provides direct access to the Huntingwood Industrial Area, Bungaribee and Western Sydney Parklands which will house the new Sydney Zoo, so it is important to ensure motorists can enjoy a more efficient and safer trip.
“The work being carried out to create additional right turn lanes onto Doonside Road and Brabham Drive will improve traffic flow while safety will also be improved for pedestrians with new pedestrian traffic lights,” Mr Anderson said.
Work is expected to be completed in December.
- Widening the road into the existing grassed median along the Great Western Highway
- Widening the existing left slip lanes onto Doonside Road and Brabham Drive
- Installation of pedestrian traffic lights
