Proposed intersection improvements at Devlin Street, Blaxland Road and Parkes Street, Ryde

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 road corridors.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime will carry out utilities survey and geotechnical investigation work to assist Devlin Street, Blaxland Road and Parkes Street intersection improvement planning and development.

Proposed work includes locating under and above ground utilities, trenches and deep boreholes.

We will be on site for seven night shifts between Wednesday 13 June and Friday 13 July 2018, weather permitting. Our night work hours will be between 9.30pm and 4.00am, from Sunday to Thursday.

Background

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

Currently, motorists experience delays at Devlin Street, Blaxland Road and Parkes Street intersection, particularly during peak periods.

Key benefits

Key benefits to the community include:

  • travel time savings for motorists using the intersection, particularly during peak periods
  • reduced queue lengths and traffic delays due to a better flow of traffic through the intersection
  • improved safety at the intersection, including a reduction in rear-end crashes.

Key features

Proposed intersection works include:

  • installing an additional northbound lane from Victoria Road to Blaxland Road
  • removal of the existing maintenance access on Devlin Street southbound
  • maintaining the existing storage length for the southbound right turn lane to Parkes Street
  • installing a raised median on Devlin Street
  • adjusting utilities, driveways, footpaths, street lighting, drainage, signage and road markings.

Community engagement

Roads and Maritime invited feedback on the proposed intersection improvements at Devlin Street, Blaxland Road and Parkes Street, Ryde in March 2018.

After considering all responses, along with the proposal’s aims and design requirements, we have decided to proceed with the proposal, subject to the following change to the original design proposal:

  • the bus priority lane on Devlin Street will not be removed as had been proposed.

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 detailed design and environmental assessment for this proposal.

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