Updates and announcements

Work is complete on the intersection upgrade at Princes Highway and Port Hacking Road, Sylvania.

Background

The intersection of Princes Highway and Port Hacking Road, Sylvania was identified for improvement as part of the NSW Government’s $300 million Gateway to the South Pinch Point Program. Princes Highway is one of three routes that cross the Georges River to link Sydney’s CBD with Sutherland Shire and the inner southern and inner western suburbs of Sydney. Princes Highway is also the principal road link between Sydney, and the Illawarra and south coast regions.

The Princes Highway and Port Hacking Road intersection caters for around 6,500 vehicles during the AM and PM peak periods. The major movements are vehicles traveling through the intersection along Princes Highway, and the right turn from Port Hacking Road onto Princes Highway.

Project

The upgrade has delivered the widening of Princes Highway to allow for more vehicle movements through the intersection. It has also delivered a new, dedicated bus bay to ease eastbound congestion on Princes Highway, and a signalised pedestrian crossing over Madeira Street.
