Permanent electronic message sign on the Great Western Highway, South Wentworthville
The NSW Government has installed a permanent electronic message sign on the Great Western Highway, South Wentworthville as part of its $246 million Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s main roads particularly during weekday peak periods.
Roads and Maritime Services invited feedback in April 2016 on a proposal to install a permanent message sign on The Great Western Highway, about 280 metres west of Bridge Road, South Wentworthville. Roads and Maritime received feedback from two residents, one who opposed the proposal. Matters they raised included alternative locations and need for the proposed sign.
After considering both responses along with the proposal’s aims and design requirements, we have decided to proceed with the proposal. We have responded directly to questions or concerns raised and thank both community members who took the time to consider the proposal and provide feedback.
Project objectives and benefits
This project is part of the NSW Government’s $246 million Pinch Point program which aims to reduce delays, manage congestion and improve travel times on Sydney’s main roads particularly during week day peak periods.
The sign will provide westbound road users with advance notice of planned and unplanned incidents along the Great Western Highway, M4, Cumberland Highway/Pennant Hills Road, Cumberland Highway and Hume Highway corridors.
We appreciate your patience whilst we delivered this important work.
