Improvements on the way for busy Beverly Hills intersection
26 June 2018
Roads and Maritime Services is progressing plans to improve the intersection of King Georges, Broadarrow and Ponyara roads at Beverly Hills.
A spokesperson said the improvements will be delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $300 million Gateway to the South Pinch Point Program which aims to improve traffic flow on Sydney’s key southern road corridors by upgrading major intersections.
“Roads and Maritime has been developing a design for this busy intersection to improve safety and efficiency for the thousands of vehicles which use it each day,” the spokesperson said.
“A high number of vehicles travel eastbound on Broadarrow Road, resulting in congestion during the morning and afternoon peaks so this work will aim to improve travel times for motorists.
“The proposed improvements would reduce queuing and allow more vehicles to travel through the busy intersection.”
The spokesperson said work would include widening Broadarrow Road to provide an additional lane to separate the left-turn, right turn and through movements onto King Georges Road to increase capacity at the intersection.
“The existing signalised pedestrian crossing and waiting area on Broadarrow Road would also be widened to increase pedestrian safety, particularly during peak school times,” the spokesperson said.
“The footpath and fencing on Broadarrow Road next to Beverly Hills Girls High School would be adjusted and work would also be carried out to resurface the road and adjust road markings.
“The community and motorists will be kept informed as the project progresses.”
Questions and comments on the proposed improvements can be provided to the project manager by Monday 10 July via email to G2S@rms.nsw.gov.au or by phoning 1800 572 114.
