Have a say on intersection improvements on Cumberland Highway and Merrylands Road at Greystanes
15 June 2017
A Roads and Maritime spokesperson today encouraged members of the community to provide feedback on a proposal to improve traffic flow at the intersection of the Cumberland Highway and Merrylands Road at Greystanes.
The spokesperson said the proposed improvements would be delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Point Program which aims to reduce congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s busiest corridors.
“The proposed work will ease congestion during peak times at this busy intersection for road users,” the spokesperson said.
“Work would include modifying the westbound bus bay on the southern side of Merrylands Road, removing the existing traffic island on Merrylands Road at the southeast corner of the intersection and adjusting the central road to accommodate the new turning lanes.
“Dual right turn lanes would also be installed on Merrylands Road as well as northbound on the Cumberland Highway while the left turn slip lane on the Cumberland Highway would be realigned to accommodate the new intersection layout.
“The existing traffic lights would also be adjusted to support the new intersection.”
The spokesperson said the proposed intersection improvements would also improve safety for pedestrians and motorists.
“Roads and Maritime will continue to keep the community updated as the project progresses,” the spokesperson said.
Feedback is invited by Wednesday 21 June and will be considered when finalising the proposal.
