Roads and Maritime Services is carrying out geotechnical analysis to determine underground rock and soil conditions along the F6 road corridor, and non-intrusive field investigations such as gravity surveys and water sampling.
This work is being carried out as part of the investigations into a possible link between the M1 Princes Motorway at Waterfall and the Sydney Motorway Network.
The M1 Princes Motorway is a key part of Australia’s national highway system, as well as providing a vital arterial road link through southern Sydney.
At present it does not have an efficient connection to Sydney’s broader motorway network from north to south.
Along the Princes Highway between Tom Ugly’s Bridge and St Peters there are 42 sets of traffic lights and a further 18 sets of lights between Tom Ugly’s Bridge and Loftus.
Congestion along this route is significant in peak times. Similarly, motorists using The Grand Parade also regularly experience heavy traffic through this busy corridor.
Roads and Maritime has been conducting a study into developing a possible link between the M1 at Waterfall and the Sydney Motorway Network, which was identified as a priority in the NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan, 2012 and the State Infrastructure Strategy Update, 2014.
