New clearways and parking changes on the way for Lyons Road
27 September 2018
Motorists who travel along Lyons Road between Five Dock and Drummoyne will soon enjoy more reliable journeys with new clearways and parking changes being introduced next month.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the changes will operate from Monday 29 October to improve traffic for motorists on this key road corridor.
“Roads and Maritime has been working with the community, businesses and the City of Canada Bay Council since November last year to find the right balance along Lyons Road,” the spokesperson said.
“Roads and Maritime has listened to the feedback received and additional investigations have been carried out at the request of Council, the community and local businesses to ensure all options have been considered.”
The spokesperson said the new clearways will operate in both directions from 6am to 10am and from 3pm to 7pm on weekdays, with timed ‘No Stopping’ restrictions operating at the intersections between Cometrowe Street and Lithgow Street from 10am to 3pm on weekdays and 9am to 6pm on weekends and public holidays.
“Timed ‘No Stopping’ restrictions will be in place to allow vehicles to use the kerbside lane and safely pass vehicles waiting on Lyons Road to turn right,” the spokesperson said.
“With funding from Roads and Maritime, City of Canada Bay Council is also reconfiguring on-street parking in Janet Street to provide additional parking for business customers.
“Timed parking will also be provided on local roads, with new timed parking spaces to also be provided for business customers on Gears Avenue, Byrne Avenue, Barney Street and Brent Street.
“These timed parking spaces will provide alternative business customer parking during the new clearway hours and ‘No Stopping’ times.
“In addition, ‘No Parking’ restrictions will also be introduced on Lyons Road between Hampden Road and Byrne Avenue as a result of the feedback received.”
The spokesperson said work to install clearway signs and parking changes will be carried out between Saturday 13 and Sunday 28 October, weather permitting.
Motorists are reminded any vehicles parked in the clearway on or after Monday 29 October risk being fined and towed.
The clearways are part of the NSW Government’s $121 million Clearways Program, which aims to reduce delays by maximising use of existing road space.
