Intersection improvements at Great Western Highway & Pages Road, St Mary's

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services will be upgrading the intersection of the Great Western Highway, Pages Road and Charles Hackett Drive, St Marys. This project aims to improve efficiency, safety and congestion on Sydney’s road network.

To achieve the best result for this intersection upgrade, existing “No parking” zones will need to be extended up to 165 metres on each side of Pages Road and Charles Hackett Drive from Sainsbury Street to Gabriels Lane.

Our work schedule

To complete the project, we will be on site for up to five nights a week for up to 60 night shifts, between Sunday, 6 May, 2018 and August 2018, weather permitting. Our night work hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Friday. We will not be working public holidays.

If you have any questions about the project, parking changes or night work schedule, please send your comments to our delivery partner by Thursday, 26 April at

Investigation Work

To help finalise a construction plan for the project, we need to carry out some investigation work at the site. This includes investigating ground conditions and locating underground utilities.

This will take two night shifts between Wednesday, 18 April and Friday, 4 May, weather permitting, excluding public holidays. Our night work hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Friday.

Project background

The NSW Government is funding this proposal as part of its $225 million Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce traffic delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s major roads, particularly during weekday peak periods.

Project objectives

The key benefits to the community include:

  • improve sight distances for right turning vehicles on Pages Road and Charles Hackett Drive reducing the risk of a crash
  • reduce congestion through the intersection
  • improve safety for pedestrians and road users.

Key features

The work would include:

  • adjusting the southbound approach of Pages Road to improve sight distances for right turning vehicles on Pages Road and Charles Hackett Drive
  • extending the right turn bays on the north and south approaches
  • changing the left only lanes to “through and left” for the north and south approaches
  • providing an additional lane on the southern exit on Pages Road
  • adjusting the traffic lights and utilities on Pages Road
  • adjusting and lengthening the median in Pages Road to improve safety.
