Parramatta Road & Great North Road, Five Dock

The NSW Government is funding this project as part of its $225 million Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney's main roads particularly during week day peak periods.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime sought feedback from the community and stakeholders in December 2016. A review of environmental factors (PDF, 18.5Mb) was placed on public display for the proposed improvements at the intersection of Parramatta Road and Great North Road.

A Submissions Report (PDF, 1.62Mb) summarising comments and responses for the proposed improvements is now available and a project update (PDF, 378Kb) was distributed to the community in June.

What will the work include?

The work will include:

  • providing an additional right turn lane from Parramatta Road into Great North Road to increase capacity and stop queuing into the through traffic lanes
  • widening Parramatta Road on the northern side and Great North Road on the eastern side to accommodate the additional right turn lane
  • widening the bridge over Iron Cove Creek to accommodate the additional right turn lane
  • realigning the footpath on Parramatta Road and Great North Road
  • upgrading traffic lights and drainage
  • relocating utilities and services
  • removing around 40 metres of parking space on Great North Road. This will be changed to “No Stopping”
  • removing and replacing asphalt and line marking
  • landscaping.

Project objective and benefits

The project is part of the NSW Government’s $225 million Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and maintain travel times on Sydney’s main roads particularly during week day peak periods.

The project will:

  • reduce congestion and improve travel times on Parramatta Road
  • increase the capacity for vehicles turning right into Great North Road.

Community consultation

Roads and Maritime displayed the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) in December 2016.

Roads and Maritime held a Community Information Session, in order for community members to discuss the proposal with the project team. The REF was also on display at a number of locations, in addition to being available on this website.

What happens next?

We will proceed with the detailed design of this project. Construction work is scheduled to start in 2018.

We will provide the community and stakeholders with the opportunity to comment on the construction schedule at a later date.
