Have your say on new clearways between Auburn and Padstow Heights

8 MARCH 2017

The community is invited to have a say on the proposed extended and new clearways between Auburn and Padstow Heights.

A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said new and extended clearways would help to protect traffic flow and reduce delays by allowing Roads and Maritime to tow vehicles that stop illegally or break down.

“The NSW Government has identified entire road corridor as a part of the $21 million Clearways program which forms part of the $246 million Pinch Points program,” the spokesperson said.

“To help with congestion and address the needs of local community and surrounding area, the proposed clearways would make all lanes available to traffic at times when the road is near capacity on both weekdays and weekends.

“The proposed clearway will extend from Parramatta Road, Auburn to Alfords Point Bridge, Padstow Heights. The roads included in the clearway proposal are St Hilliers Road, Boorea Street, Olympic Drive, Joseph Street, Rookwood Road, Stacey Street, Fairford Road, Davies Road and Alfords Point Road.

“The proposed extended and new clearway hours of operation are 6am to 7pm on weekdays and 9am to 6pm on weekends.

“The existing parking and No Stopping restrictions on this corridor will continue to operate outside of the proposed clearway times.”

Feedback is invited before 5pm on Friday 24 March via email at clearways@rms.nsw.gov.au, phone on 1300 706 232 or in writing to Sydney Clearways Strategy, Roads and Maritime, PO Box 973, Parramatta, NSW, 2124.

Roads and Maritime will consider all feedback and continue to keep the community updated as the project progresses.
