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.

Updates and announcements

Epping Road between Blaxland Road and Essex Street

Roads and Maritime Services is seeking feedback on a proposal to complete this project by working five nights a week and six days a week over four months. Some 24 hour work may also be required.

Please view or download the March 2018 community update (PDF, 214Kb) explaining the proposal and the proposed addendum to the Review of Environmental Factors (PDF, 6.8Mb).

This proposed road work schedule will enable us to complete the project before the Epping to Chatswood rail line is upgraded to Sydney Metro standards in late 2018. While the rail line is being upgraded, buses will replace trains for around seven months, as part of the Temporary Transport Plan.

If you would like to make a submission to the update, or provide feedback on the proposed night work schedule, it must reach us by 5pm on Tuesday, 3 April, 2018.

Project 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.
