Have your say on intersection improvements at Stacey Street in Bankstown
16 September 2014
The community is invited to have a say on proposed intersection improvements at Stacey Street and the Hume Highway at Bankstown which aim to ease congestion and improve safety.
“Stacey Street is an important arterial road connecting to the Hume Highway,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
“The intersection upgrade is proposed as part of the NSW Government’s $36 million Safer Roads program which aims to reduce fatality and injury crashes on NSW roads.
“The work aims to reduce the risk of crashes with a 245 metre median safety barrier on Stacey Street. Extending the right turn lanes by 120 metres aims to improve capacity for motorists turning onto the Hume Highway.
“A dedicated left turn lane is also proposed on Stacey Street for southbound motorists turning onto the Hume Highway.
“The community is invited to provide feedback on the proposed intersection upgrade by Friday 19 September.
“The proposal also includes widening the road on the eastern side of Stacey Street next to the service road, and at the northeast corner of Stacey Street and the Hume Highway to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow.
“The road surface will also be improved as part of the upgrade,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
