Intersection improvements on Cumberland Highway and The Horsley Drive, Smithfield

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

Roads and Maritime Services will be carrying out investigation work which includes locating utilities, drilling holes and saw-cutting, as well as reinstating the road surface and footpaths to help inform the design of proposed improvements to the Cumberland Highway and The Horsley Drive intersection.

Our work schedule

We will be on site for an additional 12 nights between Tuesday 23 October and Friday 21 December, weather permitting. Our night work hours will be between 8pm and 5am from Sunday to Friday.

How will the work affect you?

Our work may be noisy at times, however we will do everything we can to minimise its impact, including completing noisier activities by midnight.

Traffic changes

There will be temporary traffic changes during our work hours to ensure the work zone is safe.

Lane closures will be in place and may affect travel times. Please keep to speed limits and follow signs and traffic controllers’ directions. For the latest traffic updates, you can call 132 701, visit or download the Live Traffic NSW App.

Please view or download the October 2018 project update (PDF, 506Kb) for more information.

Our work schedule

We will inform the community before we intend to start any investigations or work.

Next steps

We will carefully consider all feedback received before deciding whether or not to proceed with this proposal. A community consultation report will be prepared, summarising the matters raised and our responses.
