Marsden Road – Dundas Valley to Carlingford

The Sydney Clearways Strategy identified Marsden Road between Dundas Valley to Carlingford, as a route for the investigation of new and extended clearways to better manage congestion on Sydney's road network.

Updates and announcements

The consultation period for proposed new and extended clearways on Marsden Road is now closed.

Roads and Maritime will consider all feedback received before deciding whether to proceed with the proposal. A community consultation report will be prepared summarising comments and issues raised and will be made available on our website in the coming months.

We will keep you updated as the proposal progresses.

Project background

In December 2013, the NSW Government announced the Sydney Clearways Strategy as one of its key initiatives to reduce congestion on Sydney’s roads. The NSW Government has committed $121 million to implementing the strategy and installing new clearways on Sydney’s road network.

Marsden Road is a key corridor on Sydney’s road network and is used by nearly 30,000 motorists every day.

When cars are parked in the kerbside lanes, motorists are forced to merge into adjacent lanes. When the road is near capacity this causes delays and congestion.

Community consultation

Roads and Maritime will consider all feedback received during the consultation period. The comments raised by the community during this period will be considered and assessed. Once consultation is complete, we will make the community consultation report available on this page.

What are the proposed hours of operation?

Roads and Maritime is proposing to install new and extended clearways in both directions on Marsden Road between Dundas Valley and Carlingford:

  • Weekdays from 6:00am to 7:00pm
  • Weekends from 9:00am to 6:00pm.

Other ‘No Parking’ and ‘No Stopping’ restrictions that operate outside clearway times, will remain in place.

Alternative parking arrangements

The proposal would have minimal impact on business and residential parking along the route.

A study of current parking use and alternative parking options found there is sufficient alternative parking available in nearby side streets and in existing carparks. It also found that all residential properties potentially impacted by the proposal have driveways or off-street parking.

What happens next?

The consultation period for proposed new and extended clearways on Marsden Road is now closed.

Roads and Maritime will make the community consultation report available online after the consultation period has finished.

We will keep you updated as the proposal progresses.
