New clearways along Elizabeth Drive between Cecil Hills and Liverpool
29 May 2018
Motorists will be able to enjoy a smoother trip along Elizabeth Drive with clearways being introduced on a busy section of the road which provides a gateway to Sydney’s south west and the M7 Motorway.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the new clearways will improve traffic flow for motorists who travel along the key corridor between Cecil Hills and Liverpool.
“These clearways are part of the $121 million Clearways Program, which aims to reduce congestion and delays on Sydney’s roads,” the spokesperson said.
“Introducing clearways on this section of Elizabeth Drive will improve journey reliability, getting motorists where they need to be sooner.
“This key corridor through Sydney’s south west provides direct access to Cowpasture Road for those heading towards Campbelltown or Horsley Park, Smithfield Road for those heading towards Wentworthville and Parramatta and the Hume Highway which provides direct access to the Liverpool CBD.
“This section of the Elizabeth Drive also provides direct access to the M7 Motorway.”
The spokesperson said clearways on Elizabeth Drive between the M7 Motorway at Cecil Hills and the Hume Highway at Liverpool will help traffic flow by restricting parking on weekdays and weekends.
“Implementing these clearways will ensure all lanes are available to traffic during clearway hours,” the spokesperson said.
“The new clearways would operate in both directions from 6am to 7pm on weekdays and from 8am to 8pm on weekends and public holidays.
“Roads and Maritime has investigated business parking along Elizabeth Drive and identified there is sufficient parking available in side streets for motorists.
“No changes will be made to the indented parking in front of shops at the intersection of Woodlands Road and Elizabeth Drive.
“Feedback on alternate business parking is now invited and will be considered before the new clearways are installed.
“The community and motorists will be kept informed as the project progresses.”
Feedback on the alternate parking arrangements is invited by 12 June and can be provided by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the project team on 1300 706 232.
The Clearways project team will also be available to discuss the new clearways at Macquarie Mall at Liverpool at Sunday 3 June from 10am to 1pm.
