Intersection improvements at Narellan Road and Appin Road, Campbelltown

The NSW Government is funding this proposal as part of its $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s busiest corridors.

Updates and announcements

Roads and Maritime Services will be starting preliminary site work on Narellan Road and Appin Road intersection upgrade including the relocation of existing Telstra services.

In April 2017 we invited feedback on the proposal and in June 2017 notified the community and stakeholders that we would be proceeding with the project.

The benefits include:

  • Increased capacity of the intersection and reduce congestion
  • Reduce travel times, particularly in peak hours
  • Improve traffic flow at this intersection and approaches
  • Improved safety for pedestrians and road users.               

Our work schedule

The proposal will be carried out in two stages.

Stage 1: Tuesday, 17 April, 2018 - Telstra relocation works commence. This will require the removal of one section of the vegetated area.

Stage 2: June 2018 - Road works commence. This will require further removal of vegetation.

Some of the vegetation within the proposal area is considered part of the Cumberland Plain Woodland vegetation community. Restorative landscaping will be carried out in the area adjacent to the works, using plant species from this vegetation community type.

We will be on site to carry out the Telstra relocation works for 20 night shifts and 20 day shifts between Tuesday, 17 April and Friday, 22 June, 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 7am and 1pm on Saturday.

How will the work affect you?

Our work may be noisy at times, however we will do everything we can to minimise its impact, including completing

Project features

Roads and Maritime Services will be carrying out investigation work which includes ground, underground utility and stormwater drainage surveys and potholing to help inform the detailed design for the next phase of the project.

Key features include:

  • adding a dedicated south bound right turning lane on Narellan Road
  • converting the existing south bound shared right and through lane on Narellan Road to a dedicated through lane
  • widening the southern side of Narellan Road and south western corner of Narellan Road and Appin Road
  • relocating the Narellan Road median
  • adjusting the south east and south west traffic islands
  • adjusting the south east left turn entry lane
  • adjusting pedestrian crossings and repainting line markings.

Key Benefits:

The proposal will:

  • reduce congestion and improve travel flow by allowing motorists travelling on Narellan Road to move through the intersection faster and more easily
  • improve safety by reducing the number of rear-end crashes and crashes from motorists changing lanes
  • complement the closed circuit television (CCTV) that was installed in late 2016, to provide better monitoring and managing of traffic conditions on Narellan Road.

What happens next?

We will continue to update you as we progress with the project.
