Intersection improvements at Great Western Highway, Doonside Road & Brabham Drive, Eastern Creek

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

To complete the project, we will be on site up to six days and five nights a week over a 27 week period, between Monday 18 June and Friday 21 December, weather permitting.

Our night work hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Friday. Our day work hours will be between 7am and 6pm from Monday to Friday and between 8am and 1pm on Saturdays.

We will not be working on public holidays.

As part of this work we will need to set up a site compound on the corner of Great Western Highway and Doonside Road eastbound (Site compound A) and another on the corner of Great Western Highway eastbound between Rooty Hill Road South and Westlink M7 (Site compound B). The site compounds will be used as a site office and to store materials throughout the project.

How will the work affect you?

Our work may be noisy at times but we will do everything we can to minimise its impact, including completing the noisier tasks by 11pm.

Project background

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.

Project objectives

The key benefits to the community include:

  • Improving eastbound and westbound traffic flow and travel times on the Great Western Highway
  • Reducing congestion caused by right turning vehicles queuing in the through lane
  • Improving safety for pedestrians.

Key features

The work would include:

  • Widening Great Western Highway from the centre median to create additional right turn lanes onto Doonside Road and Brabham Drive
  • Widening the existing eastbound and westbound left turn slip lanes from Great Western Highway onto Brabham Drive and Doonside Road
  • Adding two signalised pedestrian crossings on the north and south sides of the intersection.

What happens next?

Following closure of the community consultation process, we are planning to start work in early 2018.
