Hume Highway and Miller Road, Bass Hill

This project is part of the NSW Government’s $225 million Pinch Point Program which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s main roads particularly during week day peak periods.

Updates and announcements

This work is now complete and the intersection is open to traffic. Many thanks for your patience while we carried out this work.

Project background

During morning and afternoon peak periods, the right turn lane from the Hume Highway into Miller Road queues into the through lanes, which delays westbound vehicles.

Project objectives and benefits

The aim of the project was:

  • Improve travel times for the Hume Highway
  • Reduce delays and queue lengths on the Hume Highway
  • Improve safety at the intersection.

Key features

  • Widening the Hume Highway on the southern side to provide the extra right turn lane into Miller Road
  • Extending to a 125 metre merge lane along Miller Road to allow entry for the extra right turn lane
  • Relocating the existing bus stop northbound on Miller Road to 50 metres north of its present location
  • Removing 16 trees and replace at a nearby location in collaboration with Bankstown Council and Remembrance Driveway Committee
  • Removing 12 parking spaces on Miller Road.

Community engagement
