Hume Highway and Woodville Road intersection, Villawood/Lansdowne

Roads and Maritime Services is building an extra right turn lane from the Hume Highway westbound into Woodville Road to reduce traffic delays and improve safety.

Construction update

Work will be carried out from 8.30pm to 5am between Sunday 24 May and Sunday 12 July, excluding Saturdays, weather permitting.

Project background

During morning and afternoon peak periods, the right turn lane from the Hume Highway westbound into Woodville Road queues into the through lanes, which delays westbound vehicles and increases the risk of rear end crashes.

This project 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.

Project objectives

The work will improve traffic flow and safety by providing more room for vehicles turning right from the Hume Highway onto Woodville Road. It will also improve capacity by providing better lane use and reduce the risk of rear end crashes.

Key features

  • Build an extra right turn lane from the Hume Highway into Woodville Road
  • Extend the existing right turn lane on the Hume Highway by about 50 metres
  • Remove the existing concrete median and construct a new concrete median.

Community engagement

In November 2014, Roads and Maritime invited feedback from the community and stakeholders on this proposal. Given that no feedback was received from the community, we are proceeding to detailed design and finalising the environmental assessment for this proposal.

The local community will be kept informed on the progress of work throughout the project. Please email if you would like to receive email updates.
