Proposed permanent electronic message sign on James Ruse Drive, Parramatta

The NSW Government is funding a proposal to install a permanent electronic message sign as part of its $246 million Pinch Points and Clearways Program, which aims to reduce traffic delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s major roads, particularly during weekday peak periods.

Project background

The project is part of the NSW Government’s $246 million Pinch Point Program which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s main roads particularly during week day peak periods.

The sign will provide westbound road users with advance notice of planned and unplanned incidents and events along Windsor Road, Church Street, Briens Road, Old Windsor Road and Cumberland Highway.

Community Consultation

In December 2016, we sought community feedback on a proposal to install a permanent electronic message sign on James Ruse Drive approaching Windsor Road.  We distributed 500 letters to key stakeholders and the local community.

During the consultation period we did not receive any comments on the proposal and have decided to proceed with the project.

What happens next?

We will be carrying out work to install the permanent electronic sign.  We will be on site for 10 night shifts and 5 day shifts between Thursday 6 April and Friday 2 June 2017, weather permitting. Our night work hours will be from 8pm to 5am. Our day work hours will be from 8am to 5pm.

We will keep the community informed as the work progresses.
