Roberts Road and King Georges Road - Greenacre to Beverly Hills

The Sydney Clearways Strategy identifies Roberts Road and King Georges Road from the Hume Highway, Greenacre to the M5 Motorway, Beverly Hills, as a priority route for the investigation of clearways to better manage congestion on Sydney's road network..

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime is currently seeking feedback on a proposal to introduce new and extended clearways on Roberts Road and King Georges Road, from Greenacre to Beverly Hills, until Friday 9 December 2016.

In March 2014, Roads and Maritime consulted with the community on a proposal to install new clearways on Roberts Road and King Georges Road from the Hume Highway, Greenacre to he M5 Motorway, Beverly Hills.

We have revised our March 2014 proposal, in order to better cater for the demand for business parking removed from King Georges Road.

Project background

In December 2013, the NSW Government announced the Sydney Clearways Strategy as one of its key initiatives to reduce congestion on Sydney’s roads. The NSW Government has committed $121 million to implementing the strategy and installing new clearways on Sydney’s road network.

The strategy identified Roberts Road and King Georges Road as one of the five priority routes for further investigation of new and extended clearways.

King Georges Road is a key corridor on Sydney’s road network and is used by over 70,000 motorists every day.

When cars are parked in the kerbside lanes, motorists are forced to merge to two lanes of traffic. This causes delays and congestion.

Community Consultation

In March 2014, Roads and Maritime consulted with the community on a proposal to install new clearways on Roberts Road and King Georges Road from the Hume Highway, Greenacre to the M5 Motorway, Beverly Hills. The original proposal was for extended and new clearway hours from 6am to 7pm on weekdays and from 8am to 7pm on weekends.

As a result of community and stakeholder feedback, we have revised our proposed clearway hours of operation and alternative business parking arrangements. This is to ensure a balance between local business parking needs, traffic flow and to provide consistent clearway hours along the corridor.

What hours of operation are proposed?

Roads and Maritime are proposing to install new and extended clearways on Roberts Road and King Georges Road from the Hume Highway, Greenacre to the M5 Motorway, Beverly Hills to operate in both directions:

  • Weekdays from 6am to 7pm
  • Weekends from 9am to 6pm.

Alternative parking arrangements

We have identified potential alternative and improved business parking arrangements to cater for the demand for business parking removed from Kings Georges Road. These arrangements could include:

  • Converting existing parking on Lakemba Street and The Boulevarde at Wiley Park, to accommodate loading zones and timed parking restrictions
  • A commuter car park on The Boulevarde near Wiley Park station.

Results of additional investigation work

Investigations carried out found that:

  • Customers impacted by the removal of 16 business parking spaces at the Wiley Park shopping strip could be directed to existing nearby parking in side streets
  • Changes to timing restrictions and loading zones in nearby side streets would assist with offsetting the demand for business customer parking removed from King Georges Road during clearway operating hours
  • A new 90 degree car park would provide a minimum of 14 additional parking spaces for commuters close to the Wiley Park train station.

What happens next?

We would like to hear from you on this revised proposal by Friday 9 December. We will continue to work with City of Canterbury-Bankstown Council to seek agreement on the improved business parking arrangements.

We will consider all feedback received before deciding whether to proceed with the proposal.

A community consultation report will be prepared summarising the matters raised and will be made available on our website.

We will keep you updated as the proposal progresses.
