Croydon Road looking north towards the Parramatta Road intersection

Arlington Street, Croydon Road and Parramatta Road intersection improvements

The NSW Government’s Bus Priority Infrastructure Program is improving the reliability and efficiency of bus services, while easing congestion for all road users.

Project information

Roads and Maritime Services is proposing to provide right turn lanes out of Arlington Street and Croydon Road at the intersection of Parramatta Road. The proposal also includes changes to bus stops on Croydon Road.

The improvements to provide dedicated right turn lanes from Arlington Street and Croydon Road will make it easier and safer for buses and general traffic to turn right into Parramatta Road. We are also proposing to change the traffic signal operation to provide a right turn phase.

Relocating the bus stops on Croydon Road further away from Parramatta Road will assist buses accessing the right turn lane and improve the travel reliability through the intersection.

The intersection is a key route for buses with up to 14 general and school bus services travelling through the intersection during peak periods and school pick up and drop off times.

To minimise delays to buses and improve travel reliability and safety we are proposing:

  • a dedicated right turn lane and a shared through left turn lane in Arlington Street at the approach to Parramatta Road
  • a dedicated right turn lane and a shared through left turn lane in Croydon Road at the approach to Parramatta Road
  • changes to signal phasing that include a dedicated right turn arrow for vehicles turning right from Arlington Street and Croydon Road into Parramatta Road
  • minor adjustments to the median on Parramatta Road to allow vehicles to turn right from Arlington Street and Croydon Road into Parramatta Road at the same time.

The northbound bus stop changes on Croydon Road, between Church Street and Parramatta Road, Croydon would include:

  • removal of bus stop ID 213234. Reinstate with two unrestricted parking spaces
  • removal of bus stop ID 213235. Replace with ‘No Stopping’
  • a new bus stop will be installed close to Dalmar Street and this will result in the removal of two unrestricted parking spaces. The net result of parking removal will be nil.

The southbound bus stop changes on Croydon Road, between Parramatta Road and Australia Street, Croydon would include:

  • removal of bus stop ID 213236. Replace with ‘No Stopping’
  • removal of bus stop ID 213237. Reinstate with two unrestricted parking spaces
  • a new bus stop will be installed close to Sunbeam Avenue and this will result in the removal of two unrestricted parking spaces. The net result of parking removal will be nil.
  • Improve the reliability of bus services and reduced journey times
  • Improve traffic safety with dedicated right turn lanes and arrows on Arlington Street and Croydon Road
  • Reduce the queue length of vehicles in Arlington Street and Croydon Road on the approach to the intersection of Parramatta Road
  • Improve the efficiency of the intersections.

We will consider feedback as part of the consultation process and a community engagement report will be prepared outlining the matters raised and our responses. The community will be kept informed as the project progresses.

We are seeking feedback on this proposal until Monday 16 December by:
