Work starts on pedestrian bridge screen project across James Ruse Drive in Parramatta
10 November 2015
Work starts this week to install safety screens on the pedestrian bridge across James Ruse Drive, near Oak Street in Parramatta.
Work will be carried out between 7am to 6pm Monday 9 November to Friday 22 January, weather permitting.
Night work will take place for 12 nights between 8pm and 5am and noisy work will finish by 11pm. Every effort will be made to limit the impact on residents.
“This builds on work to widen James Ruse Drive at Hassall Street, to improve congestion and reduce delays along James Ruse Drive as part of the NSW Government’s $246 million Pinch Point Program,” a Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said.
Future work includes building a dedicated left turn lane from James Ruse Drive into Hassall Street and installing a new pedestrian crossing at the traffic lights.
No work on the pedestrian bridge screen project or at the Hassall Street intersection will be carried out during the Christmas and New Year holiday period from Friday 18 December to Sunday 3 January.
Motorists should plan ahead, allow extra travel time and follow the direction of traffic controllers, reduced speed limits and all signs.
Roads and Maritime thanks motorists for their patience while this important road improvement work is carried out. For the latest traffic information, visit www.livetraffic.com, download the Live Traffic App or call the Transport Management Centre on 132 701.
