James Ruse Drive, Briens Road and Old Windsor Road from Clyde to Constitution Hill

The Sydney Clearways Strategy identified James Ruse Drive, Briens Road and Old Windsor Road, from Clyde to Constitution Hill as a route for the introduction of new clearways and changes to the existing clearways to better manage congestion on Sydney's road network.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services is installing new and extended clearways on James Ruse Drive, Briens Road and Old Windsor Road, from Parramatta Road, Clyde to Hart Drive, Constitution Hill.

The new and extended clearways will replace the existing No Parking restrictions and introduce a clearway at all times on weekdays, weekends and public holidays in both directions.

The new and extended clearways will be operational from Monday 27 November. Please refer to the Installation section for details around the timing of works.

Any vehicles parked in the clearways on or after this date would risk being fined and towed.

Background

The NSW Government announced the Sydney Clearways Strategy as one of its key initiatives to reduce congestion on Sydney’s major roads. $121 million was committed to implementing the strategy and installing new clearways on Sydney’s road network.

Installing new and extended clearways on weekdays and weekends can help reduce congestion in many areas of Sydney by allowing motorists to use all traffic lanes.

Since 2013, we have installed over 220 kilometres of new and extended clearways across some of Sydney’s busiest road corridors. We are continuing to investigate where new and extended clearways would help ease congestion and establish more reliable travel times for motorists across the network.

Clearway hours

The clearway will apply in both directions at all times of the day on weekdays, weekends and public holidays.

Installation

The new clearway signs and posts will be installed between Monday 6 November and Sunday 26 November, weather permitting.

Our working hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Monday to Sunday. There will be minimal noise associated with this work.

The new and extended clearways will be operational from Monday 27 November 2017.

You must not stop or park on a length of road signed as a clearway during its hours of operation. If your vehicle is parked in a clearway during its hours of operation, it will risk being towed and fines applied. Public buses and taxis are permitted to stop in a clearway to set down or pick up passengers.

To report a vehicle parked in a clearway or if your vehicle has been towed from a clearway, please call Transport Management Centre on 131 700.
