$246 million Pinch Point and Clearways Program

The Pinch Point and Clearways Program aims to reduce traffic delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney's major roads, particularly during weekday peak periods.


The original five year $100 million Pinch Point Program ran from July 2007 to June 2012. Over 120 projects on 23 key corridors were delivered.

In June 2012, the NSW Government announced an extension of the program with an additional $125 million for the next five years. In May 2013, extra funding was committed to bring the total value of the Pinch Point Program to $225 million. In December 2013, the announcement of the Sydney Clearway Strategy added a further $21 million in funding bringing the total program value to $246 million.

In the first four years since July 2012, we have completed 46 pinch point projects, installed 26 permanent message signs and 48 CCTV cameras on key corridors across the Sydney road network.

Current projects

What's next?

We are carrying out investigation work to help develop a number of proposals as part of this program. The community will be invited to give their feedback on each of the proposals during their development and we will keep the community updated on the progress of the program.
