Intersection improvements at the Great Western Highway and Reservoir Road, Blacktown

Roads and Maritime Services is funding this project at the intersection of the Great Western Highway and Reservoir Road, Blacktown as part of the NSW government’s $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Points Program, which aims to reduce traffic congestion and improve travel times on Sydney's busiest corridors.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime invited feedback on the proposal in December 2017. We received feedback from 13 people with six people supporting the proposal, three people supporting the proposal with conditions, and four people who did not state a preference. Key matters raised included:

  • Left turning lane from Reservoir Road southbound into the Great Western Highway eastbound
  • Pedestrian safety
  • Entry and exiting ramps on the M4 Motorway for Reservoir Road.

We thank everyone for considering the proposal and for their feedback.

After considering all responses, along with the proposal’s aims and design requirements, we have decided to proceed with the proposal unchanged.

We thank everyone for considering the proposal and taking time to provide their feedback.

Next Steps

Roads and Maritime will finalise the detailed design and environmental assessment for the project. We will continue to keep the community informed as the project progresses.
