Improvement work continues on the Cumberland Highway at Cabramatta
5 JUNE 2017
A Roads and Maritime Service spokesperson today reminded the community of continuing work at the intersection of Cabramatta Road and the Cumberland Highway at Cabramatta to improve traffic flow and safety at the busy intersection.
The spokesperson said the work is being delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $246 million Pinch Point program which aims to reduce traffic delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s major roads particularly during weekday peak hours.
“The Cumberland Highway is a significant route for local road users in south west Sydney and is a key connection between the Pacific Highway at Wahroonga and the Hume Highway at Liverpool,” the spokesperson said.
“Improvement work is progressing well at this busy intersection to improve traffic flow and safety on the Cumberland Highway and Cabramatta Road as well as reduce queuing and waiting times for motorists.
“Work involves building a new pedestrian crossing and removing the left turn on red permitted after stopping at Links Avenue. The existing merge lane will also be moved from south of the intersection with Cabramatta Road to south of the bridge across Cabramatta Creek.”
Work is scheduled to be carried out until Monday 31 July, excluding public holidays and weather permitting.
To minimise the impact to motorists, work will be carried out between 8pm and 5am with some work required to be carried out between 7am and 6pm, excluding Saturdays.
The spokesperson said work may be noisy at times but all measures will be taken to minimise impact to residents.
Motorists are advised to drive to the conditions and follow the direction of signs and traffic control.
Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community for its patience while work is carried out.
