Have your say on proposed right turn changes at Mascot
29 March 2018
Roads and Maritime Services is proposing to install full-time ‘No Right Turn’ restrictions on O’Riordan Street for southbound traffic at the intersections of Haran and John streets at Mascot.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the turning restrictions will aim to ease congestion and improve safety for all road users.
“Residents and businesses will be able to access local roads via Gardeners and Bourke roads, which have designated right turning lanes,” the spokesperson said.
“Additionally, Roads and Maritime is proposing ‘No-Parking’ changes to on-street parking on the eastern side of O’Riordan Street. These changes will aim to improve traffic flow at the intersection and approaches, particularly in peak hours.
“The changes are being proposed in response to investigations which found in the five years to 2017, there were two right turn related crashes on O’Riordan Street at the intersection of John Street.
“Southbound traffic on O’Riordan Street is also frequently interrupted by vehicles waiting to turn right into Haran and John streets and motorists often take risks when turning right into these side streets,” the spokesperson said.
Feedback on the proposal is invited until Thursday 12 April and will be considered when finalising the proposal.
Comments on the proposed turning restrictions can be provided by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to Roads and Maritime Services PO Box 973, Parramatta, NSW 2124.
