Norwest Boulevard, Glenwood

Roads and Maritime Services has completed this $820,000 project on Norwest Boulevard as it approaches the intersections with Greenhill Drive and Old Windsor Road, Glenwood, as part of the NSW Government’s $246 million Pinch Points Program, which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s main roads, particularly during week day peak periods.

In February 2016, Roads and Maritime Services consulted with the community, stakeholders and local businesses about the proposal to extend the eastbound and westbound right turn lanes from the Norwest Boulevard.

Roads and Maritime assessed and considered the feedback and decided to go ahead with the project. View or download the Community Consultation Report.

Updates and announcements

Construction on Norwest Boulevard, Glenwood was carried out from mid 2016 to late August 2016.

Roads and Maritime Services has delivered this project to provide:

  • Improved traffic flows and reduced congestion along Norwest Boulevard, Old Windsor Road and Greenhill Drive as a result of extending the eastbound and westbound right turn bays from Norwest Boulevard. The lengthened turn lanes reduce congestion, by minimising the overflow of vehicles blocking the through lanes as they are queuing to turn.
  • Improved road safety as a result of reduced queuing into through traffic lanes on Norwest Boulevard.
