Work soars ahead at Airport North Precinct
10 OCTOBER 2017
Motorists are advised of changed traffic conditions from next week on O’Riordan and Robey streets at Mascot and as part of the NSW Government’s Airport North precinct upgrade.
A Roads and Maritime spokesperson said Robey Street will become one way for eastbound traffic between Qantas Drive and O’Riordan Street with O’Riordan Street becoming one way for southbound traffic south of Robey Street from Saturday 14 October, weather permitting.
“As part of the essential upgrades to the busy Sydney Airport precinct, Roads and Maritime Services is preparing to upgrade roads to improve traffic flow and connection to and from the Airport and Port Botany,” the spokesperson said.
“Changes to O’Riordan and Robey streets will improve traffic flow in to and out of the Domestic Terminal and for road users travelling along Qantas Drive and Joyce Drive.
“While Robey Street will be one way, access will be maintained for vehicles travelling to and from the Stamford Plaza Hotel and Gateway 241 building.
“Roads and Maritime is working closely with Sydney Airport as work to widen and improve Qantas Drive around the entrance and exit to the Domestic Terminal bounds toward the finish line.”
The spokesperson said motorists will need to be aware of the changes and plan ahead for the changed traffic conditions.
“Depending on their destination, motorists will need to take a slightly different route. Motorists travelling westbound on Joyce Drive toward Alexandria via O’Riordan Street will need to turn right at Robey Street,” the spokesperson said.
“Motorists travelling eastbound on Qantas Drive toward Alexandria via O’Riordan Street will need to turn left early at Robey Street and those travelling southbound on O’Riordan Street who need to go towards the International Terminal will need to travel past the Robey Street intersection and turn right at Qantas Drive.
“Work to support the changes, including the installation of new traffic signs, will be completed before the changed traffic conditions are in place from the early hours of next Saturday.
“Motorists should plan ahead, drive to the conditions and follow the direction of signs and traffic control while work is carried out.”
Roads and Maritime thanks motorists for their patience while work is carried out.
