Updates and announcements

Work is progressing at the nearby Hoxton Park Road and Whitford Road intersection upgrade and we are near completion, view the July 2019 project update (PDF, 211kb) for more information on this work.

Look to the intersection of Hoxton Park Road, Banks Road and Joadja Road in the near future for upgrade work to begin.

Project background

The NSW Government is funding this project as part of its $300 million Urban Roads Pinch Point Program, which aims to reduce congestion and improve travel time on Sydney’s busiest corridors.

Motorists traveling towards Liverpool often experience congestion and wait times squeezing through the intersection at Hoxton Park Road, Banks and Joadja roads. The single right turn lane has lines of motorists wanting to connect to the M7 which then block other road users continuing east towards Liverpool.

Roads and Maritime Services is upgrading this ‘pinch point’ by adjusting medians to create an additional eastbound right turn lane on Hoxton Park Road into Joadja Road.

We are also adding signals at the left turn slip lane pedestrian crossing from Hoxton Park Road westbound into Joadja Road.

Community benefits

Benefits to the community include:

  • improving traffic flow for Liverpool and local suburb road users
  • reducing travel times, particularly in peak hours
  • easing congestion along Hoxton Park Road
  • improving safety for pedestrians and road users.

Community consultation

Roads and Maritime sought feedback from the community and stakeholders in late January and early February 2018.

We thank everyone for considering the proposal and for their feedback.

After considering all responses, along with the proposal’s aims, design requirements and constraints, and further investigations, we are not progressing with the additional right turn on Banks Road onto Hoxton Park Road. We decided to proceed with the proposal to upgrade the right turn lane from Hoxton Park Road into Joadja Road.

Next steps

We will keep the community informed as we progress with this project.
