New weekday clearways and parking changes on Lyons Road

Between Great North Road, Five Dock and Victoria Road, Drummoyne.

Updates and announcements

In April 2018, Roads and Maritime Services updated the community about the introduction of new weekday clearways and the proposed new timed 'No Stopping' parking changes at key intersections on Lyons Road. Since the update, we received additional concerns from businesses and the community about the changes.

Roads and Maritime, in consultation with the City of Canada Bay Council, will investigate and work through these additional community and business concerns.  While these investigations are being completed we will not be undertaking any clearways or 'No Stopping' changes on Lyons Road.

Roads and Maritime will continue to keep the community updated as the project progresses.

Weekday clearways

The proposed new weekday clearway hours would operate in both directions from:

  • 6am to 10am and 3pm to 7pm on weekdays only.

The new weekday clearways will replace the existing 'No Parking' restrictions that operate from 6:30am to 9:30am and 3:30pm to 6:30pm weekdays.

The new clearways will help traffic flow by restricting parking during the clearway hours and allowing vehicles to be towed if they stop illegally or breakdown.

‘No Stopping’ parking changes

While considering the clearways proposal, Roads and Maritime identified that parking at certain locations on Lyons Road was also causing congestion. We are proposing to introduce new timed ‘No Stopping’ parking changes at key intersections.

The proposed timed ‘No Stopping’ would operate from:

  • 10am to 3pm weekdays
  • 9am to 6pm weekends and public holidays

The 'No Stopping' applies between the new weekday clearway hours of 6:00am to 10:00am and 3:00pm to 7:00pm.

It is expected that these changes will allow traffic to flow more freely on Lyons Road and help reduce vehicles ‘rat running’ through local streets to avoid congestion and delays.

Since the April project update, we received additional concerns from businesses and the community. We are currently investigating and working through these additional concerns and will update the community as the project progresses. While these investigations are being completed we will not be undertaking any clearways or ‘No Stopping’ changes on Lyons Road.

Alternate business parking

Roads and Maritime will continue to work with the City of Canada Bay Council to deliver a new timed parking and carpark upgrade to Janet Street. This is to ensure adequate business parking is available, which is subject to Council approval.

What happens next?

Roads and Maritime in consultation with the City of Canada Bay Council will investigate and work through the concerns raised by businesses and community members. While these investigations are being completed we will not be undertaking any clearways or ‘No Stopping’ changes on Lyons Road.

We will continue to update the community as the project progresses.
