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

Roads and Maritime Services has opened to traffic the upgraded intersection at Great Western Highway, Doonside Road and Brabham Drive.

The completed work helps ease congestion along Great Western Highway. The additional right turn lanes and widened eastbound and westbound left turn slip lanes allow more motorists to move along the highway unimpeded by vehicles turning onto Doonside Road and Brabham Drive.

Safety is also improved for pedestrians with additional pedestrian crossings at the intersection.

We will need to return to site to install a new street light on the corner of Doonside Road and Great Western Highway. We will be on site for three night shifts between Friday 26 October and Friday 21 December, weather permitting. Our work hours will be between 9pm and 5am from Sunday to Friday.

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?

Roads and Maritime will further develop the proposed intersection improvements.

We will keep the community informed as we progress with this project.
