King Georges Road between Beverly Hills and Hurstville

The NSW Government is working to ease congestion, increase safety and improve travel times on King Georges Road, between Beverly Hills and Hurstville

Updates and announcements

Motorists currently experience significant congestion along King Georges Road between Stoney Creek Road and Forest Road, particularly during weekday peak periods.

Roads and Maritime Services asked the community to have their say on a proposal to ease congestion, increase safety and improve travel times on this important stretch of road.

We have considered all responses to the consultation on the proposed improvements and have decided to proceed with the widening of the road. However we will continue investigations based on community feedback, especially around the right turn movement restrictions, and will develop a work schedule over the coming months.

We will update the community when these additional investigations are complete before starting work. We will also communicate a timeframe for construction, including anticipated start and finish dates.
