Project background

Roads and Maritime Services is developing a design to ease congestion and improve travel time on King Georges Road.

Motorists are experiencing significant congestion along King Georges Road between Stoney Creek Road, Beverly Hills and Forest Road, Hurstville during the weekday peak periods.

The NSW Government is funding a $40 million proposal to improve this section of King Georges Road.

Roads and Maritime is inviting your feedback on the proposal to widen King Georges Road between Stoney Creek Road, Beverly Hills and Forest Road, Hurstville, by Sunday 21 October at 5pm.

Proposed design

The proposal includes:

  • widening King Georges Road from Stoney Creek Road, Beverly Hills to Forest Road, Hurstville to create three lanes in each direction, separated by a concrete median
  • removing right turn movements in and out of George, Dudley, Clarence and Percival streets to increase safety and improve travel time for motorists traveling on King Georges Road
  • relocating and installing of pavements, street lighting, kerbs and drainage to meet existing assets
  • road resurfacing and line marking
  • tree removal, trimming and landscaping.

Proposed construction schedule

We are also seeking feedback on our proposal to complete construction on these improvements by working up to five nights a week and six days a week. The proposed schedule will allow us to complete the works as quickly as possible to minimise the disruption period for residents, businesses and road users.

Next steps

This project is now in its concept design stage. During this stage we carry out investigations to explore the preferred placement of the road widening. The community also have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback on this preferred option. These comments will be considered and responded to in a community consultation report that will be available on our website following the close of consultation. It may take us a few months to consider all feedback received, we appreciate your patience during this time.

Roads and Maritime Services will be carrying out further investigation work in the area surrounding King Georges Road between Morgan Street, Beverly Hills and Grosvenor Road, South Hurstville.

We will be surveying to locate, clean and inspect drainage in the area to help further develop a design for future improvements to King Georges Road.

We will be on site for 90 night shifts between Monday 23 July and Monday 3 December, weather permitting. Our night work hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Friday. We will not be working on public holidays.
