St Hilliers Road, Boorea Street, Olympic Drive, Joseph Street, Rookwood Road and Stacey Street, Auburn to Bankstown

The Sydney Clearways Strategy identified St Hilliers Road, Boorea Street, Olympic Drive, Joseph Street, Rookwood Road and Stacey Street between Parramatta Road, Auburn and Hume Highway, Bankstown as a route for the investigation of new clearways to better manage congestion on Sydney's road network.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services is seeking feedback by Friday 24 March 2017 on a proposal to install new and extended clearways on St Hilliers Road, Boorea Street, Olympic Drive, Joseph Street, Rookwood Road and Stacey Street between Parramatta Road, Auburn and Hume Highway, Bankstown.

Please note: the existing parking restrictions on this corridor would continue to operate outside of the proposed clearway times.

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.

Clearways help to protect traffic flow and reduce delays by allowing us to tow vehicles that stop illegally or break down. When cars are parked in the kerbside lanes, motorists are forced to merge into adjacent lanes. When the road is near capacity this causes delays and congestion.
