Project information

Roads and Maritime has proposed to install new weekend and extended weekday clearways in both directions on Milperra Road and Canterbury Road between Henry Lawson Drive, Milperra and New Canterbury Road, Hurlstone Park to operate:

  • Weekdays from 6am to 7pm
  • Weekends and public holidays from 9am to 6pm

The NSW Government announced the Sydney Clearways Strategy in December 2013 as one of its key initiatives to reduce congestion on Sydney’s major roads. It committed $121 million to implementing the strategy and installing new clearways on Sydney’s road network.

The strategy identifies over 1000 km of state roads on key corridors across Sydney, which may benefit from the introduction of new and extended weekday and new weekend clearways, to improve the movement of goods and people.

The proposed clearways on Milperra Road and Canterbury Road would help improve journey times by making an additional lane available to traffic during clearway times, which reduces congestion and helps drivers get to their destination sooner.

Clearways have an immediate positive impact on traffic flow as they utilise existing road space without the need for road construction. Parking will still be allowed on Milperra Road and Canterbury Road outside of the proposed clearways hours in sections where it is currently available.

The benefits of clearways include:

  • reduce congestion by making an additional lane available to traffic
  • improve journey times, allowing drivers to get to their destination sooner and more reliably
  • improve safety by removing parked vehicles from the kerbside lane
  • have an immediate positive impact on traffic flow as it uses existing road space for the movement of vehicles
  • improve the efficiency of intersections along the corridor, as all lanes are used.

We invite your feedback on the proposed alternative business customer parking options by Monday 4 November 2019.

Please send your comments to clearways@rms.nsw.gov.au, call 1300 706 232 or leave a comment on our online consulation map.

We will consider your feedback and continue to update you as the project progresses.
