Proposed permanent electronic message sign on Windsor Road, Baulkham Hills

The NSW Government is funding a proposal to install a permanent electronic message sign as part of its $225 million Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce traffic delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s major roads, particularly during weekday peak periods.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services will be carrying out work to install the sign in stages and expect the work will take 15 shifts to complete between Wednesday 12 April and Friday 30 June, weather permitting. Our working hours for night shifts will be from 8pm to 5am. Our working hours for day shifts will be from 8am to 5pm.

Project update

The project is part of the NSW Government’s $225 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 permanent electronic message sign will provide southbound road users with advance notice of planned and unplanned incidents and events along Windsor Road, Seven Hills Road, Old Northern Road, M2 Motorway, James Ruse Drive and Briens Road.

Community engagement

Roads and Maritime invited feedback in December 2016 on a proposal to install a permanent electronic message sign.

Roads and Maritime received comments from one person, on behalf of nine residents on Excelsior Way and Excelsior Avenue, all who were opposed to the proposal. Matters they raised included property values, alternative locations, visual impacts of the sign and safety.

After considering all responses along with the proposal’s aims and design requirements, we have decided to proceed with the proposal, with additional landscaping along Excelsior Avenue in consultation with local council.

We have responded directly to questions or concerns raised and thank everyone for considering the proposal and for their feedback.

For more information on the consultation, please view the Consultation Report.

We will keep the community informed as the project progresses.
