Intersection improvements on Cumberland Highway and Merrylands Road, Greystanes

The NSW Government is funding this work as part of its $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Points Program which aims to ease congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s busiest corridors.

Updates and announcements

So far we have completed the setup of the site compound, tree and shrub removal, removed existing medians on all approaches, temporarily moving the westbound bus bay and adjustments to the footpath and kerbs.

The next stage of work includes:

  • installing dual right turn lanes east and westbound on Merrylands Road and northbound on Cumberland Highway
  • installing barriers along Cumberland Highway on the south east corner of the intersection
  • adjusting the central road medians on all approaches of the intersection to accommodate the new turning lanes
  • realigning a left turn slip lane on the Cumberland Highway to accommodate the new intersection layout
  • adjusting the existing traffic signals to support the new intersection
  • landscaping work.

This project aims to improve efficiency, safety and congestion on Sydney’s road network.

We have included a map (PDF, 396Kb) showing the location of work and our site compound.
