Updates and announcements

Denmark Link Road – consultation now closed

In November and December 2015, Roads and Maritime consulted with the community and stakeholders on the proposed Denmark Link Road – a new link road between Garfield Road West, Riverstone and the Westminster Street bridge, Schofields. 

We would like to thank everyone who considered the Denmark Link Road preferred option and provided feedback.

A consultation report summarising feedback received and responses from Roads and Maritime will be available soon.

Project background

Denmark Link Road is a proposed new link road between Garfield Road West, Riverstone and the Westminster Street bridge, Schofields.  This new link road would alleviate traffic congestion along Garfield Road West around the railway level crossing at Riverstone and would provide an alternate local connection for light vehicles to cross the Richmond railway line, to avoid the Riverstone Town Centre.

The preferred option would provide a link road from Garfield Road West, Riverstone via Denmark Road intersection to West Parade. West Parade would be extended to the Westminster Street bridge, Schofields. The proposal would link to new traffic lights that were recently completed at the Westminster Street and Railway Terrace intersection.

The Denmark Link Road is part of the North West Growth Centre Road Network Strategy short-term work and is subject to funding availability. 

An Options Report for the proposed Denmark Link Road has been prepared and details the analysis and process to select the preferred option.

Benefits

The preferred Denmark Link Road option would:

  • Reduce congestion and delays that are currently being experienced at the Garfield Road railway level crossing at Riverstone
  • Provide a second local road connection for motorists wishing to use the Westminster Street bridge, alleviating congestion on Garfield Road
  • Meets the future traffic needs for the area.

Features

The preferred Denmark Link Road option is a two lane local road with a footpath on one side. The proposal includes:

  • An intersection at Garfield Road West and Denmark Road with a right-turn bay for traffic waiting to enter Denmark Road at Riverstone
  • Improvements to the existing Denmark Road
  • A new link road between Denmark Road and West Parade
  • New intersections at Carlton Street and West Parade
  • Extension of West Parade to connect near the Westminster Street bridge at Schofields.

Selection of a preferred corridor

A number of options were developed for Denmark Link Road and an assessment was carried out with key stakeholders to select a preferred option.

An Options Report has been prepared detailing the process carried out in the selection of the preferred option.
