Stacey Street and Greenacre Road, Bankstown

The NSW Government is funding this project 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

Roads and Maritime Services notified the community in the February 2018 community notification (PDF, 406Kb) about proposed intersection improvements on Stacey Street and Greenacre Road in Bankstown.

We have considered all feedback and have decided to defer the proposed intersection improvements on Stacey Street and Greenacre Road. We will be prioritising the investigation of the Stacey Street corridor to inform the design of future corridor improvements.

Roads and Maritime will continue to monitor the intersection of Stacey Street and Greenacre Road and include the intersection in any future investigations to improve the Stacey Street corridor.

Background

The A6 is a major arterial road linking the northern and western suburbs to the inner western suburbs. Road users travelling through the intersection of Stacey Street and Greenacre Road currently experience delays due to reduced capacity of the turning bays on Greenacre Road. This causes vehicles to queue, causing congestion at the intersection.

An analysis of five year crash data (between 1 January 2011 and 31 December 2015) for this area shows 35 crashes, eight resulting in serious injury, seven moderate injuries and nine minor/uncategorised injury. There were also 11 non-injury related crashes. The most common crash types occurred when vehicles were turning in the intersection and rear-end crashes.

Project

The proposed work included:

  • extending the right turn lane from Greenacre Road into Stacey Street
  • removing six parking spaces (three on either side) of Greenacre Road
  • line marking and installing signage on Greenacre Road and Stacey Street.

Benefits of the project

Benefits of the proposed project included:

  • improved journey time reliability and reduce travel times for road users
  • increased capacity for vehicles turning right from Greenacre Road into Stacey Street and improved safety by reducing the occurrence of queuing.

Community engagement

Roads and Maritime distributed a community notification to local residents and key stakeholders in February 2018.

A targeted door knock was carried out to directly impacted residents relating to parking changes as part of this project.

We have considered all feedback and have decided to defer the proposed intersection improvements on Stacey Street and Greenacre Road. We will be prioritising the investigation of the Stacey Street corridor to inform the design of future corridor improvements.
