Technology to improve traffic flow on Victoria Road at Rozelle
15 AUGUST 2017
Motorists will soon benefit from improved traffic flow on the approach to The Crescent along Victoria Road at Rozelle with an automated barrier system to be installed.
A Roads and Maritime spokesperson said the NSW Government has provided funding for the essential work to improve traffic flow in the city bound lanes in the morning peak period.
“The new automated barrier system aims to reduce congestion caused by vehicles obstructing the third lane on approach to The Crescent and will benefit more than 33,000 motorists who travel southbound through Rozelle along the major road corridor every day,” the spokesperson said.
“The new system will provide three unobstructed left turns, including one dedicated bus lane, into the Sydney CBD during morning peak.”
“Work will also be carried out to change bus lane line marking between Evans Street and The Crescent to improve the way the bus lane is used outside of morning bus lane hours.”
Work is expected to be completed by Thursday 17 August, weather permitting.
The spokesperson said these improvements will be supported by an electronic messaging sign installed along Victoria Road last September.
“Work was carried out to install a new electronic directional sign at the intersection of Robert Street and Victoria Road to highlight whether the third lane turns left onto Victoria Road or right onto The Crescent,” the spokesperson said.
“Two static signs on the pedestrian bridge next to Lilyfield Road were also replaced with electronic signs to remind road users of the lane configurations.”
Pavement lights on the road to guide traffic flow during morning peak are planned for installation on Victoria Road in coming weeks.
Roads and Maritime Services thanks the community for its patience while work is carried out.
