Work starts on intersection improvements at Plumpton
15 MARCH 2017
Roads and Maritime Services today announced motorists will soon benefit from improvements to the intersection of Rooty Hill Road North, Jersey Road and Lamb Street at Plumpton, with work starting today.
A Roads and Maritime spokesperson said this project would be delivered as part of the NSW Government’s $246 million Pinch Point and Clearways program, which aims to reduce congestion and delays on Sydney’s major road corridors, particularly during weekday peak travel times.
“Work will involve converting the existing roundabout to a signalised intersection to reduce congestion and improve travel times for motorists and provide signalised crossings to improve pedestrian safety,” the spokesperson said.
Work will be broken up into stages and is expected to take about nine months to complete, with the first stage of work to be carried out until Wednesday 7 June.
“The first stage of work involves site establishment, installing barriers for the safety of workers and motorists, installing drainage, and removing the existing roundabout and medians,” the spokesperson said.
“Work is expected to take 45 night shifts to complete and will be carried out between 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Monday, weather permitting.
“Work will also be carried out on weekdays between 7am and 6pm and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays.”
Lane closures and road diversions will be in place and may affect travel times.
Motorists are advised to plan ahead, drive to the conditions and follow the directions of signs and traffic control.
Roads and Maritime Services thank the community for its patience while work is carried out.
