No stopping zone to improve traffic flow on Queens Road at Hurstville
3 JULY 2015
Traffic flow is set to be improved this month as a ‘No Stopping Zone’ is extended on the northern side of Queens Road between Park Road and The Avenue at Hurstville.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the proposal to remove parking spaces on the northern side of Queens Road will reduce congestion from cars needing to change lanes outside of the existing clearway periods.
“A clearway is in place on Queens Road on weekdays between 6am and 10am on the northern side and on the southern side between 3pm and 7pm,” the spokesperson said.
“Extending the ‘No Stopping zone’ in addition to clearway conditions will increase eastbound traffic flow on Queens Road, reduce congestion and reduce queuing.
“New signage will be installed at the site to advise motorists of the changed traffic conditions from Monday 13 July.
“Roads and Maritime consulted with the local community and residents on the proposed traffic flow improvements.
“Community members are thanked for their input to the proposal.
“Motorists who stop or park in a “No Stopping zone” can receive an infringement notice.
“Roads and Maritime advises motorists any vehicles parked in the new zone on or after 13 July is at risk of incurring a fine.”
