Project information

Roads and Maritime Services 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.

Roads and Maritime Services 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.

We have considered all responses to the consultation on the proposed improvements to King Georges Road between Stoney Road and Forest Road and have decided to continue with the widening of the road. However we will continue investigations based on community feedback, especially around the right turn movement restrictions, and will develop a work schedule over the coming months.

We will update the community when these additional investigations are complete before starting work. We will also communicate a timeframe for construction, including anticipated start and finish dates.

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