New and extended clearways on Henry Lawson Dr, Forest Rd and Stoney Creek Rd
15 October 2018
Motorists will soon be able to enjoy a smoother journey during peak periods with new and extended weekday clearways on Henry Lawson Drive, Forest Road and Stoney Creek Road, between Padstow Heights and Penshurst.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the clearways will operate in both directions from 6am to 10am and 3pm to 7pm, on weekdays, starting from Monday 5 November.
“The NSW Government is delivering faster, easier and safer travel on Sydney roads, including on these busy stretches through Padstow Heights, Peakhurst and Penshurst,” the spokesperson said.
“Clearways help improve journey times by making all lanes available to traffic during clearway times, which reduces congestion and helps motorists get to their destination sooner.
“A single parked car can cause major delays on busy road corridors during peak times, so it is important to ensure all lanes are available to improve journey reliability.”
The spokesperson said work to install clearway signs will start on Saturday 20 October and finish on Sunday 4 November, weather permitting.
“The new and extended weekday clearways will replace existing ‘No Parking’, ‘No Stopping’ and unrestricted parking during clearway hours on Henry Lawson Drive, Forest Road and Stoney Creek Road,” the spokesperson said.
“Motorists are reminded that any vehicles parked in the clearway on or after the 5th of November risk being fined and towed.”
Roads and Maritime has also engaged with the community about proposed alternative business parking on Penshurst Street, to offset two short stay business spaces that will be removed from Stoney Creek Road during clearways hours.
Following consultation with Georges River Council, there will be three additional half-hour parking spaces and two one-hour parking spaces on Penshurst Street.
A summary of the community engagement is available on the Sydney Clearways Program page.
