MAY 2020Investigation works

Motorists currently experience significant congestion along King Georges Road between Stoney Creek Road and Forest Road, particularly during weekday peak periods.

Transport for NSW started to carry out investigations on King Georges Road between Stoney Creek Road, Beverly Hills and Connells Point Road, South Hurstville. Some side streets will also be impacted.

These investigations are being carried out to gather information to help further develop a design for future improvements.

Planned works between 1 June and 7 June.

We have planned to carry out non noisy works in Penshurst and South Hurstville next week.

We will carry out the works during the day and night. We will make every effort to minimise disruption.

Project information

Transport for NSW is working to ease congestion, increase safety and improve travel times on King Georges Road, between Beverly Hills and Hurstville.

Motorists currently experience significant congestion along King Georges Road between Stoney Creek Road and Forest Road, particularly during weekday peak periods.

 

Transport for NSW asked the community to have a say on proposed improvements including:

  • widening King Georges Road from Stoney Creek Road, Beverly Hills to Forest Road, Hurstville to create three lanes in each direction, separated by a concrete median
  • removing right turn movements in and out of George, Dudley, Clarence and Percival streets to increase safety and improve travel time for motorists traveling on King Georges Road
  • relocating and installing of footpaths, street lighting, kerbs and drainage
  • road resurfacing and line marking
  • tree removal, trimming and landscaping.

We received 106 submissions from the community. 31 submissions were supportive of various parts of the proposal, nine submissions were against the proposal and 66 submissions did not state a preference.

We have responded to all feedback raised by the community in the consultation report.

Key matters raised by the community included:

  • support for the proposed widening of King Georges Road between Stoney Creek Road, Beverly Hills and Forest Road, Hurstville
  • opposition to the proposed restrictions to right turn movements into and out of George, Dudley, Clarence and Percival streets
  • requests for consideration to be given to removing the restriction of the right turn movements when travelling southbound on King Georges Road to turn onto Forest Road, Hurstville.

In response to community feedback we have modified our proposed design to provide a dedicated right turn lane on King Georges Road southbound for motorists turning right on Percival Street. This lane, will allow motorists to queue safely on King Georges Road while waiting for a break in traffic to turn right into Percival Street without impeding traffic flow in the southbound lanes. It will also maintain access to Penshurst Public School and the Penshurst Park Sporting hub.

Some changes to the median will also be made to accommodate water drainage.

The proposal to ban right turn movements into and out of George, Dudley and Clarence streets will not change. As such motorists will not be able to turn right from Percival Street to travel southbound on King Georges Road. Roads and Maritime investigated removing these proposed right turn bans as well as potential changes to the intersection of King Georges and Forest Roads. Investigations have shown, right turning traffic contributes significantly to congestion on King Georges Road and the project’s benefit would be diminished if these turns were allowed.

We thank everyone for considering the proposal and for the time they spent to give us feedback.
