Great Western Highway, Church Street and Parkes Street, Parramatta

The NSW Government is funding this proposal as part of its $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s busiest corridors.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services sought feedback from the community and stakeholders in October 2017 on proposed intersection improvements at the Great Western Highway, Church Street and Parkes Street, Parramatta.

No concerns were raised and we have decided to proceed with the proposal.

Next steps

Roads and Maritime will finalise the detailed design and environmental assessment for the project.

Work on site is expected to commence early to mid-2019 and will include:

  • relocating the median island on the Great Western Highway to provide an additional right turn lane from the Great Western Highway onto Church Street
  • widening on the western side of Church Street to provide an additional right turn lane from Church Street onto Parkes Street
  • relocating utilities
  • upgrading traffic lights
  • reconstructing footpaths
  • line marking.

We will notify the community and stakeholders again before work starts and will continue to update them as the project progresses.

Project benefits

The key benefits to the community include:

  • reduced traffic congestion and queue lengths
  • improved travel times particularly during busy periods at the intersection and on approach roads
  • improved traffic flow through the intersection
  • improved safety for pedestrians and road users.
