Pennant Hills Road and The Crescent, Pennant Hills

The NSW Government is funding this project at the intersection of Pennant Hills Road and The Crescent, Pennant Hills, as part of its $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Points Program, which aims to reduce traffic congestion and improve travel times on Sydney's busiest corridors.

Updates and announcements

In December 2016 and May 2017, Roads and Maritime sought feedback on a proposal to extend the existing right turn bay along Pennant Hills Road between The Crescent and Fisher Avenue, to ease congestion on Pennant Hills Road.

We have now prepared a Community Consultation Report (PDF, 1.04Mb) that summarises the feedback we received and our responses.

We have considered the feedback, and have decided to proceed with the proposed intersection improvements at Pennant Hills Road and The Crescent, Pennant Hills, with work commencing from Wednesday 28 June 2017.

Due to high traffic volumes in the area, and in order to minimise impacts for residents and road users, Roads and Maritime will need to carry out most of the work at night. We will be carrying out 25 night shifts between Wednesday 28 June and Friday 8 September, 2017.
