Consultation on the future of the Meccano Set, intersection of Woodville Road, Henry Lawson Drive, Lansdowne
Roads and Maritime Services sought community and stakeholder feedback on the future of the Meccano Set structure at the intersection of Woodville Road, Henry Lawson Drive and Hume Highway, Lansdowne.
The ‘Meccano Set’ at the intersection of Woodville Road, Henry Lawson Drive and the Hume Highway, was erected in 1962 and although the well-known structure is not heritage listed, it is considered a ‘place of interest’ and a Western Sydney icon.
At the time, the structure was considered to be a major project to assist traffic management by installing overhead directional signs and traffic lights because of the high traffic volumes at the intersection.
The ‘Meccano Set’ has been maintained by Roads and Maritime since the early 1960’s.
Roads and Maritime sought community and stakeholder feedback on the future of the intersection, including the ‘Meccano Set’ structure earlier this year.
Following a review of the comments, we have decided to keep the structure. We have prepared a Community Consultation Report, which summarises the feedback and our responses.
We will now prepare a maintenance plan to improve the structure. We will notify the community in advance of any work.
