Project background

The 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.

The sign on March Street will provide information to allow motorists to make informed decisions about their journey. At this location, the sign will provide information for westbound traffic along March Street, through North Richmond and along Bells Line of Road towards Lithgow and beyond, during planned and unplanned weather and traffic incidents which cause delays or road closures.

Community Consultation

In March 2017, Roads and Maritime Services sought community feedback on a proposal to install a permanent electronic message sign on March Street, Richmond, approaching East Market Street.

During the consultation period we received one response, not supporting the proposal. Matters raised in this response related to the location and position of the sign.

What happens next?

We will install the sign in stages and will be on site for six night shifts and six day shifts from Monday 15 May and Friday 30 June 2017, weather permitting. Our night work hours will be from 7pm to 5am. Our day work hours will be from 7am to 5pm.

We will keep the community informed as the work progresses.
