Program background

The NSW Government is funding a $30 million Parramatta Congestion Improvement Program to address congestion by improving traffic flow in Parramatta and surrounding areas. As Sydney’s second CBD, improved access to Parramatta is important to better manage traffic demand, increase through traffic and improve safety for all road users.

The program will help ease congestion through:

  • widening small sections of roads or intersections
  • adding extra turn bays, through lanes or turning lanes
  • modifying traffic signals at key intersections.

Program benefits

Proposed improvements at identified sites are expected to:

  • improve access to and from the Parramatta CBD
  • better manage increased traffic on the surrounding road network
  • improve safety for all road users
  • reduce queue lengths and increase through traffic
  • facilitate growth and development in Parramatta and surrounding areas.

What's next?

We are currently developing proposals for the identified intersections, which will involve planning and field investigation work. We will continue to update the community as the proposal progresses.
