Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime would like to acknowledge and correct an error in the consultation report, published April 2018. On page 17 of the report, in response to submissions about the right turn ban from Centennial Avenue (southbound) to Epping Road (westbound), the report advises that:

‘The right turn ban was implemented as part of the local traffic management measure associated with the installation of the Lane Cove Tunnel Project.’

After further reviewing this response, we acknowledge that the right turn ban was implemented many years ago as part of a local traffic management measure and was reviewed and retained at the time of the installation of the Lane Cove Tunnel Project.

We have corrected the response and updated the consultation report and apologise for any confusion caused.

Project background

The NSW Government is funding this proposal as part of its $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce congestion and improve travel times on Sydney's busiest corridors.

Currently, around 3800 vehicles per hour travel through the intersection in the morning and afternoon peak periods. In the morning peak, northbound traffic on Centennial Avenue experiences significant delays and queues of over 400 metres.

Roads and Maritime proposes to improve traffic flow through the intersection by widening Centennial Avenue and changing the lane configuration of Centennial Avenue and Epping Road.

Project benefits

Benefits of the proposal include:

  • reduced queue lengths for motorists travelling northbound on Centennial Avenue at Epping Road
  • improved travel times and left turn movement for northbound motorists turning from Centennial Avenue onto Epping Road.

Community engagement

Roads and Maritime invited feedback on the proposal in December 2017. Following the announcement, the community raised concern about the timing and duration of community consultation on proposed intersection improvements on Centennial Avenue and Epping Road. In response, Roads and Maritime agreed to extend the consultation period to Wednesday, 31 January, 2018.

We have now prepared a community consultation report that summarises the feedback we received and our responses.

We would like to thank everyone who took the time to consider our proposal and provide feedback.

What happens next?

Roads and Maritime will finalise the design and environmental assessment for the proposed intersection improvements on Centennial Avenue and Epping Road.

Further communications will be provided to the community and stakeholders as the project progresses.
