Background

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

Installing new clearways can help reduce congestion in many areas of Sydney by allowing motorists to use all traffic lanes.

Since 2013, we have installed over 450 kilometres of new and extended clearways across some of Sydney’s busiest road corridors. We are continuing to investigate where new and extended clearways would help ease congestion and establish more reliable travel times for motorists across the network.

Clearway hours

The new clearways will operate on weekdays from:

  • 6am to 10am and 3pm to 7pm.

The new clearways will replace the existing ‘No Parking’ restrictions that operate on weekdays from 6.30am to 9.30am and 3.30pm to 6.30pm.

We are also installing timed ‘No Stopping’ restrictions at specific intersections between Cometrowe Street and Lithgow Street.

The new timed ‘No Stopping’ restrictions will operate from:

New alternative business parking

With funding from Roads and Maritime, the City of Canada Bay Council will be reconfiguring parking on Janet Street to provide additional parking spaces for business customers.

New timed parking spaces will also be provided on Gears Avenue, Byrne Avenue, Barney Street and Brent Street.

Additional investigations

In May 2018 we informed the community that we would be undertaking additional investigations prior to introducing the new weekday clearways and timed ‘No Stopping’ restrictions on Lyons Road.

The investigations were requested by local businesses and the City of Canada Bay Council to address concerns on the removal of parking on Lyons Road near Hampden Road, and the impact on business customer parking and business deliveries.

Investigation outcome

Roads and Maritime, in collaboration with City of Canada Bay Council, has undertaken the additional investigations requested by the community.

To ensure parking is available for business customers, Roads and Maritime has provided funding to the City of Canada Bay Council for the reconfiguration of parking on Janet Street to provide additional business customer parking spaces. New timed parking spaces will also be provided on Gears Avenue, Byrne Avenue, Barney Street and Brent Street for business customers.

For delivery drop off and pick up, we have changed the timed ‘No Stopping’ on Lyons Road between Hampden Road and Byrne Avenue to ‘No Parking’. ‘No Parking’ allows delivery vehicles to stop for short periods of time for drop off and pick up activities (in accordance with the NSW Road Rules).

These changes will ensure the right balance of the needs of motorists, business and residents is achieved along Lyons Road.

What happens next?

The new clearway and parking restriction signs and posts will be installed between Saturday 13 October and Sunday 28 October 2018, weather permitting.

Our standard working hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Monday to Sunday. We will also be undertaking some daytime work between 10am and 3pm on weekdays.

If you have any questions about the installation works, please contact our delivery partner, Downer EDI on 1300 776 069.

How will this work affect you?

There will be some noise associated with this work but we will do everything we can to minimise its impact, including completing the noisier tasks by 11pm.

During the installation work, there will be some temporary traffic changes to ensure the work zone is safe. Lane closures will be in place and may affect travel times.

Please keep to speed limits and follow signs and traffic controllers’ directions.
