Mount Ousley Road/M1 Princes Motorway
Mount Ousley Road, renamed the M1 Princes Motorway, carries significant commuter, heavy vehicle and recreational traffic.
Roads and Maritime has a number of projects being carried out to improve safety for road users in this area including:
- Safety upgrade for northbound traffic entering the M1 from Picton Road
- Interchange at the intersection of M1 and Old Mt Ousley Road.
Safety upgrade - Picton Road/M1 intersection (northbound)
Roads and Maritime Services has completed the safety upgrade at the intersection of the M1 Princes Motorway (Mt Ousley Road) and Picton Road. The upgrade has improved safety by adjusting the access to Sydney from Picton Road to remove the current T-intersection and building an acceleration lane on the M1.
Please see the M1 interchange project page or call project team on 1800 792 918 or email email@example.com.
M1 interchange at the base of Mt Ousley
Roads and Maritime has begun planning for an interchange on the M1 at the base of Mt Ousley and will also explore opportunities to install a third southbound lane from about 650m north of New Mt Pleasant Road to Mount Ousley Road, a total distance of about 2.5km.
The interchange will look at future traffic growth and improve road safety at the base of Mt Ousley.
Mount Ousley heavy vehicle rest area
In March 2013, the Australian and NSW Governments announced $8.09 million to construct a north bound heavy vehicle rest area at the intersection of the M1 Motorway and Clive Bissell Drive, Mount Ousley.
This location is currently used as an informal rest area. The project will provide additional capacity, new facilities and safer access for heavy vehicles.
The project will provide:
- Safer access into the area
- Parking space for at least 10 Heavy Vehicles
- Toilets, rubbish bins and sheltered areas, including picnic tables
- Designated space for Driver Reviver operations
- Cater for truck drivers in managing driver fatigue.
