Intersection improvements at Parramatta Road and Shaftesbury Road, Concord

The NSW Government is investing in this work to ease congestion and improve travel time on Sydney’s key corridors.

Project information

Roads and Maritime Services is upgrading the intersection of Parramatta Road and Shaftesbury Road, Concord. The improvements will reduce congestion and improvement travel times on Parramatta Road, and increase the capacity for vehicles turning right into Shaftesbury Road.

The work will include:

  • providing an additional eastbound right turn lane from Parramatta Road into Shaftesbury Road to increase capacity and stop queuing into the through traffic lanes
  • widening the northern side of Parramatta Road and the western side of Shaftesbury Road to accommodate the additional right turn lane
  • realigning footpaths, upgrading traffic lights and drainage, relocating services, removing and replacing asphalt, line marking and landscaping.

During May and June 2016, Roads and Maritime consulted with the community on the proposed intersection improvement. Comments from 14 people raised 83 matters, with the majority relating to the background of the proposal and congestion in the wider Burwood/Concord area.

In response to concerns raised during consultation, and to indicate proposed changes to the project’s scope, Roads and Maritime displayed the Review of Environmental Factors to allow for further comment from the community.

Roads and Maritime also held an information session to allow community members to discuss the proposal with the project team. Roads and Maritime also published a submissions report summarising comments and response.
