What is happening now?

Work has commenced on the Pitt Town Road upgrade. The first intersection to be upgraded as part of this work is the Pitt Town Road and Charles Street intersection in McGraths Hill.

Project background

High volumes of traffic currently travel along Pitt Town Road through McGraths Hill to the developing Pitt Town. The Department of Planning and Environment has secured funding through infrastructure contributions and Roads and Maritime is delivering a series of intersection improvements along Pitt Town Road, between Windsor Road, McGraths Hill, and Glebe Road, Pitt Town.

The improvements include road widening and shoulder extensions at the intersections.

Our work schedule

We will be on site for 60 day and 30 night shifts between Wednesday 20 February and Tuesday 13 August, excluding public holidays, weather permitting.

Our day work hours will be between 7am and 6pm from Monday to Friday and between 8am and 1pm on Saturday. Our night work hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Friday. Our work may be noisy at times but we will do everything we can to minimise its impact, including completing the noisier tasks by midnight. To minimise disruption to residents, businesses and road users, we will not work more than two nights in any week.

As part of this work we will be temporarily re-locating the east bound bus stop on Pitt Town Road about 100 metres west.

We will establish a site compound on Pitt Town Road east of the work zone on both sides of Ivy Avenue. The site compound will be used as a site office and to store material throughout the project.

Temporary traffic changes

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

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

What happens next?

We will keep you informed on the project’s progress.
