Milperra Road and The River Road, Revesby

Roads and Maritime Services is providing an extended eastbound right turn lane on Milperra Road by 220 metres for vehicles turning into The River Road to improve traffic flow and safety.

Updates and announcements

We have finished major construction to improve traffic flow on Milperra Road onto The River Road in December 2016.

The improvements will increase capacity for cars turning right from Milperra Road into The River Road.

The completed work includes:

  • installation of an additional right turn lane of approximately 190 meters to provide dual right turning lanes
  • widening the southern side of Milperra Road to allow for the upgraded right turning lanes to be constructed
  • adjustments to kerb, gutter, drainage and driveways on the southern side of Milperra Road
  • relocation of light poles
  • removal and replacement of asphalt
  • adjustments to existing traffic lights
  • line marking.

During the coming months, the project team will complete the final stages including landscaping and other minor work.

This work will take six shifts to complete between Sunday 26 February and Sunday 19 March, weather permitting. Our working hours will be from 8pm to 5am, between Sundays and Fridays.

Project background

Motorists travelling eastbound on Milperra Road are experiencing delays during peak periods because vehicles queuing in the right turn lane (to turn into The River Road) are overflowing into the through lanes.

The River Road provides access to the suburbs south of Canterbury Road/Milperra Road as well as to the M5 Motorway with on and off ramp for eastbound and westbound motorists.

The proposal is part of the NSW Government’s $225 million Pinch Point program which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and maintain travel times on Sydney’s main roads particularly during week day peak periods.

Project objectives

The proposed work will improve traffic flow and safety by providing more room for motorists wishing to turn right from Milperra Road onto The River Road. It would also improve capacity by providing better lane use and reduce the risk of rear end crashes.

Key features

  • Extend the existing right turn lane on Milperra Road by 220 metres
  • Provide dual right turn lanes
  • Widen on the southern side of Milperra Road to allow for the extension of the right turn lane
  • Kerb, gutter and property adjustments on the southern side of Milperra Road
  • Relocate light poles and underground utilities
  • Resurface the asphalt surface of the road.

Community engagement

Roads and Maritime invited the community and key stakeholders to provide feedback on this proposal in June 2014.

The Community consultation report identifying the issues and suggestions raised by the community and how they will be addressed is now available. The local community will be kept informed on the progress of work throughout the project.
