Alfords Point Road, Illawong/Alfords Point

The NSW Government has completed the $40 million upgrade to widen Alfords Point Road between the Georges River and Brushwood Drive.

The upgrade forms part of a broader plan to improve road safety and traffic flow along Alfords Point Road and through the southern region of Sydney. The upgrade also provides further improvements to the local road network.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services has opened the new six lane Alfords Point Road. The 2.1km project will be completed two months ahead of schedule in October 2017.

Noise wall project

Roads and Maritime has engaged GHD to investigate the feasibility of a noise barrier on top of the rock face between Nallada Road and Marlock Place. The investigation included noise modelling, environmental and geotechnical investigations, alignment surveying and constructability feasibility.

The feasibility report identified a potential alignment at the back of the rock face near the property boundaries with a wall height of 4.5 metres. We are looking at two designs for the wall, a full 4.5 metre hebel wall and a 2.7 metre hebel wall with 1.8 metre clear Perspex top. We have design a visualisation and animation to show residents what the noise barriers may look like and a visualisation of a ‘do nothing’ approach.

Project update

Roads and Maritime has completed major construction work including:

  • relocation of Telstra assets
  • construction of a new Heavy Vehicle Inspection Station on the eastern side of Alfords Point Road, under the Old Illawarra Road overbridge
  • major earthwork on the eastern side of Alfords Point Road
  • concrete shared path on the eastern side of Alfords Point Road
  • eastern and western rock face stabilisation work
  • construction of the eastern noise wall
  • installation of the concrete barrier separating the north and souhtbound carriageway
