Project background

The NSW Government has committed $300 million to the Urban Roads Pinch Points Program, which aims to reduce congestion and improve travel time on Sydney’s busiest corridors.

The intersection of The Hume Highway and Homebush Road has been identified as an important intersection to manage increasing traffic demand and to improve traffic flow.

The improvements would serve future traffic and transport needs of the intersection by reducing delays during peak periods, and easing congestion.

Project features

This project includes:

  • extending the right turn lane by about 120 metres westbound on Hume Highway
  • retaining eight parking spaces on the western side of Homebush Road between the Hume Highway and High Street, during the morning peak period from 8am to 10am; and
  • retaining 12 parking spaces on the eastern side of Homebush Road between the Hume Highway and High Street during the afternoon peak period from 4pm to 6pm
  • repainting road marking and installing signage.

Project benefits

  • improve the operational efficiency of the intersection
  • reduce delays and improve traffic flow
  • improve safety for all road users.

Community engagement

In November 2017, Roads and Maritime invited feedback from local businesses, residents and stakeholders on a proposal for intersection improvements on the Hume Highway and Homebush Road, Strathfield.

Following assessment of this feedback, Roads and Maritime have decided to proceed with the project with the following changes.

We will retain all parking spaces on both sides of Homebush Road as a result of community feedback including:

  • retaining eight parking spaces on the western side of Homebush Road between the Hume Highway and High Street during the morning peak period from 8am to 10am
  • retaining 12 parking spaces on the eastern side of Homebush Road between the Hume Highway and High Street during the afternoon peak period from 4pm to 6pm.

A copy of the Community Consultation Report which summarises the feedback and responses has been released along with a community notification that was distributed to residents notifying them of this outcome.

Next steps

We will be on site to deliver the improvements for a total of 10 nights shifts between Friday, 4 May and Friday, 29 June, weather permitting. Our work hours will be from 8pm to 5am, between Sundays and Fridays. We will not be working public holidays.

We will continue to keep the community informed as the project progresses.
