Traffic flow to improve along Blaxland Road
23 March 2020
Extended clearways will be introduced on Blaxland Road from early April to improve journey reliability for motorists and bus commuters who travel along the key corridor between Ryde and Epping.
A Transport for NSW spokesperson said the extended clearways are being installed as part of the NSW Government’s program to reduce congestion and delays on Sydney's roads.
"Blaxland Road is a key corridor through Sydney's north west which provides direct access to Ryde, Denistone, Denistone East, Eastwood and Epping as well as surrounding suburbs," the spokesperson said.
"Extended clearway hours are being introduced between Devlin Street and Epping Road to manage traffic flow for the more than 25,000 vehicles which travel along the busy corridor each day.
"This important corridor provides access to Epping Station, Lane Cove and Balaclava roads as well as access to a number of businesses, health and education services.
"Introducing extended weekday clearway hours will also improve journey reliability for all road users."
The spokesperson said the extended clearways will operate in both directions from 6am to 10am and from 3pm to 7pm on weekdays.
"By introducing clearways, road capacity can be increased without widening roads," the spokesperson said.
"This means motorists and bus commuters will be able to spend more time doing the things they enjoy."
The spokesperson said work to install new clearway signs will be carried out between Friday 27 March and Sunday 5 April, weather permitting.
Motorists are reminded any vehicles parked in the clearway on or after Monday 6 April risk being fined and towed.
Illegally parked vehicles can be reported to the Transport Management Centre on 131 700.
