Old Windsor Road, Bella Vista

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. It is proposed to maximise the road space of Old Windsor Road by widening the road to improve efficiency and safety for all road users and mitigate congestion during peak periods.

Updates and announcements

Start of construction was announced at Old Windsor Road in Bella Vista on 6 February 2019.

This first stage of work includes establishing the site compound, removing trees and vegetation, installing traffic controls, investigating and locating utilities as well as drilling holes and saw-cutting.

We will be updating you on this project as work progresses, including informing you in advance about future work schedules and night work.

Our work schedule

We will be on site for up to five days and five nights a week for 30 night shifts and 35 day shifts between Monday 11 February and Sunday 31 April 2019, weather permitting, excluding public holidays.

Our day work hours will be between 7am and 6pm from Monday to Friday and between 8am to 1pm on Saturday. Our night work hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Friday. 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 noisier activities by midnight. Noise barriers along Old Windsor Road, will minimise the impact of noisy tasks. Traffic changes

There will be temporary traffic changes during our work hours to ensure the work zone is safe.

Lane closures will be in place and may affect travel times. Please keep to speed limits and follow signs and traffic controllers’ directions. For the latest traffic updates, you can call 132 701, visit livetraffic.com or download the Live Traffic NSW App.
