Plans progress for proposed clearways along the Hume Highway through Warwick Farm
31 October 2018
Motorists may soon be able to enjoy a smoother trip along the Hume Highway with clearways proposed for the busy section of the road between the Cumberland Highway and Henry Lawson Drive.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said the proposed new and extended clearways would improve traffic flow for motorists who travel along the key corridor between Liverpool and Villawood.
“The NSW Government is funding this project as part of its program to reduce congestion and delays on Sydney’s roads which will allow motorists to spend more time doing the things they enjoy,” the spokesperson said.
“Introducing clearways on this section of the Hume Highway would improve journey reliability and efficiency as all lanes would be used.
“While planning for the proposed new and extended clearways, Roads and Maritime investigated business parking along the Hume Highway and identified the proposal would result in the loss of five parking spaces between Forbes and Goulburn streets at Liverpool.
“New timed business customer parking spaces are proposed to be provided on Goulburn Street and no changes will be made to existing parking restrictions along the Hume Highway outside the proposed clearway hours.
“Feedback on alternative business parking is now invited and will be considered before the proposed new and extended clearways are installed.”
The spokesperson said proposed clearways for the Hume Highway between the Cumberland Highway at Liverpool and Henry Lawson Drive at Villawood would help traffic flow by restricting parking on weekdays and weekends.
“This key corridor through Sydney’s south west provides direct access to the Cumberland Highway for those for those heading towards Cabramatta or Fairfield and Henry Lawson Drive for those heading towards Georges Hall and Milperra,” the spokesperson said.
“The corridor also provides direct access to the Liverpool CBD and Warwick Farm station.
“The proposed new clearways would operate in both directions from 6am to 7pm on weekdays and from 9am to 6pm on weekends and public holidays.”
Feedback on the alternative parking arrangements is invited until Monday 12 November 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 proposed clearways and alternative parking arrangements Macquarie Mall at Liverpool on Thursday 1 November from 4pm to 7pm.
