New clearways to help get motorists moving around Sydney Olympic Park
Monday, 11 April 2016
Minister for Roads Duncan Gay today announced new weekend and extended weekday clearways have been installed on Centenary Drive, Homebush Bay Drive and a section of Concord Road between Strathfield and Rhodes.
“The NSW Government is taking action to reduce congestion and is pushing ahead with our $121 million Clearways Strategy to get people moving freely on some of Sydney’s busiest roads,” Mr Gay said.
“With congestion currently costing Sydney around $5.1 billion each year, the NSW Government is committed to maximising the use of existing road space and delivering travel time savings for motorists.
“We’re not just building long-term congestion busting projects such as WestConnex and NorthConnex – we’re also providing immediate relief on busy roads such as Victoria Road, Lane Cove Road, the Princes Highway, Anzac Parade and now Centenary Drive, Homebush Bay Drive and a section of Concord Road.”
The new clearway is along a nine kilometre route starting at Centenary Drive from the Hume Highway to the M4 Motorway, Homebush Bay Drive from the M4 Motorway to Concord Road and the section of Concord Road from Homebush Bay Drive to Ryde Bridge.
“This new length of clearway adds to other recently installed clearways and means there is 19 kilometres of road where people cannot park or stop from Strathfield to Pymble – a huge stretch of congestion relief for motorists,” Mr Gay said.
The clearway hours will be extended to 6am to 7pm on weekdays and from 9am to 6pm on weekends.
No Stopping and No Parking restrictions will continue to operate outside these clearway times.
Any vehicles parked in the clearways will risk being fined and towed.
