Easing congestion through Bankstown with further Stacey St & Fairford Rd uprades
18 November 2019
Work starts next week on improvements to Stacey Street and Fairford Road at Bankstown, to ease congestion for northbound motorists and upgrade key intersections.
Transport for NSW Executive Director Sydney, John Hardwick, said the project is being carried out in stages between Stanley Street and Macauley Avenue.
"Around 59,000 vehicles use this section of Stacey Street and Fairford Road each day, making this one of Sydney's busiest road corridors," Mr Hardwick said.
"Work will be carried out from Monday 25 November on the northbound stretch of road to help motorists enjoy a smoother and safer journey through Bankstown towards the Hume Highway.
"In April this year, work was completed to widen the southbound lanes between Macauley Avenue and Stanley Street to provide an additional lane and to extend the right turn bay on Stacey Street for motorists turning into Macauley Avenue."
Mr Hardwick said this stage of the improvements will provide greater vehicle capacity so road users can enjoy reduced travel times and improved journey reliability.
"Work includes installing a third northbound lane between Macauley Avenue and Stanley Street," Mr Hardwick said.
"There will also be easier access out of Macauley Avenue by providing dual right turning lanes and a dedicated bus lane onto Fairford Road and traffic flow will be improved from Stacey Street into Stanley Street with an extended right turning lane.
"Pedestrian movements and safety is also a key part of this work, with new or improved pedestrian crossing lights and pram facilities at the intersection of Stacey Street, Stanley Street and Salvia Avenue."
There will be temporary traffic changes during work hours, which may affect travel times. For the latest traffic updates, call 132 701, visit the Live Traffic NSW website or download the Live Traffic NSW App.
