There is significant congestion at this intersection, particularly during weekday peak periods.

The NSW Government is funding this proposal as part of its $300 million Gateway to the South Pinch Points program which aims to ease congestion and improve journey reliability on Sydney’s key southern corridors.

Original proposal

We sought feedback between December 2015 and January 2016 on a proposal to ease congestion at this intersection which included changing the access into Stuart Street and King Georges Road from the Princes Highway.

We received feedback from over 350 people with most unsupportive of the proposal. We have prepared a Community Consultation Report which summarises the matters raised and our response.

Following a review of the feedback, we have decided not to proceed with this proposal at this stage.

Next steps

There is significant congestion at this intersection particularly during peak periods and improvements are needed to reduce congestion and improve travel reliability. We will investigate and assess alternative solutions to help ease congestion and improve travel times at this intersection.

Community engagement

We will continue to work closely and engage with the community during the development of these alternative solutions.
