Epping Town Centre road and intersection upgrades

Roads and Maritime Services is planning road and intersection upgrades in Epping Town Centre to support the NSW Government's Urban Activation Precinct Program. The road projects aim to improve traffic flows and road safety and reduce congestion.

A Community Consultation Report (PDF, 426Kb) summarising comments and responses for the proposed widening of Epping Road between Essex Street and Blaxland Road was released in September 2016.

Background

Epping Town Centre is one of eight precincts under the NSW Government’s Urban Activation Precincts Program 2013, which aims to deliver more homes in places with access to infrastructure, transport, services and jobs.

In 2013, the Department of Planning and Environment released the Epping Town Centre Structure Plan to support the urban activation of the Epping Town Centre precinct. The structure plan followed the 2011 Epping Town Centre study that was carried out by the Department of Planning and Environment, Hornsby Shire Council and Parramatta City Council. This study identified a number of issues with the existing road network, including traffic congestion and delays.

As a result of this work, Roads and Maritime Services has received funding to improve road infrastructure in the area.

Key features and benefits

The Epping Town Centre road projects aim to improve traffic flow and road safety, and help reduce traffic delays and congestion.
