Have your say on night work for Stacey Street and Hume Highway
20 October 2015
The community is invited to have a say on a proposal to carry out night work to progress the Stacey Street and Hume Highway intersection improvements at Bankstown.
“The NSW Government has provided $2.5 million to improve both safety and traffic flow at this major intersection,” A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
“Community feedback is being invited until Friday 30 October on a proposal to work up to five nights a week for three months from Sunday 8 November, when night work will resume after Higher School Certificate exams are complete.
“Work is under way to install a 245 metre safety barrier along the centre median on Stacey Street between the Hume Highway and Mimosa Road and to extend two right turn lanes and a new left turn lane from Stacey Street onto the Hume Highway.
“To reduce the impact for road users, Roads and Maritime Services is proposing to carry out night work between 8pm and 5am, excluding Saturdays.
“Some day shifts will also be carried out on weekdays between 7am and 6pm and on Saturdays between 8am and 1pm, weather permitting.
“No work will be carried out at the site during the holiday period between Friday 18 December and Saturday 2 January next year.
“Work in coming months will include new kerb and gutter, road surfacing, the relocation of traffic lights and pedestrian facilities, the installation of a new safety barrier and line marking.
“There will be some noise associated with this work and every effort will be made to minimise its impact, including noisier work being carried out between 8pm and 11pm.
“To ensure the safety of workers and all road users some temporary lane closures will be in place and motorists are asked to plan their trip, allow extra travel time and follow the direction of traffic control.
“All feedback will be considered in finalising work hours for the project. Work on the project is expected to be completed in February 2016, weather permitting.
“The community is thanked for their patience while this important road improvement work is carried out.”
