Princes Highway, King Georges Road and Stuart Street, Blakehurst

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

Updates and announcements

We invited feedback in October 2017 on a revised proposal to improve traffic flow on Stuart Street at the intersection of the Princes Highway and King Georges Road.

Following community interest and feedback on the proposal, we will not be proceeding with this work.

We are preparing a community consultation report, summarising the matters raised during the consultation period and our responses will be made available on our website in August.

Background

The Princes Highway and King Georges Road are one of the main arterial routes that connect the Sutherland Shire and Sydney. This location has been identified as part of the Gateway to the South program to improve the efficiency of the intersection and provide improved travel times for road users travelling along the corridor.

Revised proposal

After considering all responses to the original proposal below, along with the project’s aims and design requirements, we sought feedback in October 2017 on a new proposal to install a concrete median eastbound on Stuart Street to close access out of Stuart Street onto the Princes Highway and King Georges Road. This proposal aimed to improve the flow of traffic travelling through the intersection of the Princes Highway and King Georges Road and access into Blakehurst.

As part of the revised proposal, vehicles exiting Stuart Street were redirected via alternative routes to access King Georges Road and the Princes Highway.

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 prepared a Community Consultation Report which summarises the matters raised and our response.

Following a review of the feedback, we decided not to proceed with the original proposal.
