Project background

The NSW Government is proposing improvements at the intersection of Showground Road and Carrington Road, Castle Hill, as part of the Bus Priority Infrastructure Program, which aims to improve the reliability and efficiency of bus services, while easing congestion for all road users.

Project features

  • widening the north side of Showground Road to provide two eastbound through lanes and two right turn lanes onto Carrington Road within the existing road corridor
  • providing a westbound bus lane along Showground Road about 60 metres either side of Doran Drive
  • providing a dedicated westbound left turn lane, buses excepted, on Showground Road for southbound access onto Carrington Road
  • widening the west side of Carrington Road to provide two right turn lanes onto Showground Road eastbound, a new dedicated left turn lane onto Showground Road westbound with a new signalised pedestrian crossing, two southbound exit lanes, a new traffic island and upgraded signalised pedestrian crossings on Showground Road
  • lane resurfacing and upgrading of pedestrian crossings
  • providing a 2.5 metre wide shared footpath and cycleway along the northern side of Showground Road for the extent of the proposed roadworks
  • relocating the northbound bus stop on Carrington Road for the proposed Showground Metro Station interchange
  • removing some trees and some parking.

Project benefits

  • improve the reliability of bus services and journey times through the intersection
  • help ease congestion and improve travel times for all road users, particularly during peak periods
  • improve pedestrian safety and the flow of traffic along Showground Road
  • complement the road upgrades currently being carried out by Roads and Maritime Services on Showground Road, between Carrington Road and Old Northern Road, Castle Hill.
