Intersection improvements at Mamre Road and Saddington Street, St Marys

Mamre Road has been identified as a pinch point at the intersection with Saddington Street.

Updates and announcements

The NSW Government is funding this intersection improvement proposal as part of its $225 million Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce traffic delays, manage congestion and maintain travel times on Sydney’s major roads, particularly during weekday peak periods.

Roads and Maritime Services is delivering this project, which involves creating dedicated right turn lanes from Mamre Road into Saddington Street.

Progress so far and the next stage

We have removed nine trees next to Our Lady of the Rosary Primary School, completed property adjustments, and relocated some utilities.

The remaining work to be completed includes:

  • widening the western side of Mamre Road by about five metres to provide dedicated right turn lanes from Mamre Road into Saddington Street, northbound and southbound
  • building a centre median on Mamre Road to protect the right turning traffic
  • installing a CCTV camera to help monitor and manage traffic
  • relocating utilities.

Our work schedule

We will continue to be on site for the next stage of work for 35 night shifts and 50 day shifts between Monday 7 May and Friday 27 July, excluding public holidays, weather permitting. Our night work hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Friday.

Our day work hours will be between 7am and 6pm from Monday to Friday and between 8am and 1pm on Saturday.

The project is expected to be completed in October 2018.

How will the work affect you?

Our work may be noisy at times but we will do everything we can to minimise its impact, including completing the noisier tasks by 11pm.

Traffic changes

There will be temporary traffic changes during our work hours to ensure the work zone is safe.

There will be temporary changes to the northbound bus stop on Mamre Road, next to Our Lady of the Rosary Primary School from Monday 7 May. Please refer to the Roads and Maritime Services website or signage on bus stops for up-to-date information.

For all school services, buses will detour via John Street and stop on Edgar Street to ensure pedestrian safety.

Lane closures will be in place and may affect travel times. Please keep to speed limits and follow signs and traffic controllers’ directions.
