Rydalmere - Victoria Road - Bus Priority Program
Roads and Maritime Services is planning to add a PM bus lane on Victoria Road westbound on each side of the Euston Road intersection at Rydalmere.
The proposed works involve widening the northern side of Victoria Road, east of Euston Street, to create space for an extension of the westbound bus lane on the southern side of Victoria Road.
The new section of westbound bus lane will further improve bus travel times and the reliability of bus services operating along the 21km length of Victoria Road, which connects the twin CBDs of Parramatta and Sydney.
The bus lane extension will not impact on existing parking arrangements. It will operate at the same times as the existing PM clearway - 3pm to 7pm Monday to Friday.
The bus lane also will not impact on access to properties. General traffic is permitted to travel in a bus lane for up to 100 metres to:
- Enter or leave a property adjacent to the bus lane
- Turn left or right into and out of a street
- Pass another vehicle that has stopped to turn right or to avoid an obstruction.
Utility adjustments and widening work on Victoria Road eastbound to the east of Euston Road is scheduled to begin in mid-2013 and be completed in mid-2014, weather permitting.
