Intersection of Parramatta Road and Hume Highway, Ashfield
This intersection upgrade will improve traffic flow and safety by providing more room for motorists.
Work to upgrade the intersection at Parramatta Road and Hume Highway began on Monday 7 July for three months from 8pm to 5am excluding Saturdays. Read the project update (PDF, 839Kb).
The intersection upgrade will improve traffic flow and safety by providing more room for motorists heading eastbound wishing to turn right from Parramatta Road into the Hume Highway or motorists heading westbound wanting to turn left from Parramatta Road into Hume Highway. It would also improve capacity by providing better lane use and reduce the risk of rear end crashes.
The proposal is part of the NSW Government’s $246 million Pinch Point program which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and maintain travel times on Sydney’s main roads particularly during week day peak periods.
